Agave Oat Cookies

 I found this recipe years ago (2010) soon after becoming vegan. I brought home some agave nectar from the Whole Earth Center in Princeton since I had switched to natural and vegan sweeteners. The picture on the source website looks nothing like the finished product. Although, I suppose if you used the full 1/2 cup of canola oil, the cookies would spread. Did I mention I was also hypersensitive (mentally) about using too much fat in recipes in 2010, too?

In looking for an image suited for this quote (or one of those pin-able quote images”), I found a metal song by the same name. Go watch it and support an emerging band with your views.

Zucchini Banana Coconut Paleo Bread

The second paleo recipe of late…what is this madness?! One of my neighbors gave me an entire bag of Nutiva coconut flour, and this was the first thing I made with it. The Wednesday farmers market is usually a little thin on goods, but one vendor offers an “all you can fit” bag for $10. I used zucchini in this recipe from the farmers market.

National Chocolate Chip Day: Peanut Butter Blondies

National Chocolate Chip Day is another one of those made-up holidays that must have been made just for bloggers. Actually, I’m pretty sure it’s been around since before the Internet since most sites about it seem to reference the original chocolate chip cookie. NCCD is 15 May, and my post is a day late. I went to see Mad Max: Fury Road on Thursday (the other day I usually blog) and didn’t decide what to bake for NCCD until yesterday afternoon.

Base Cookies

These cookies are foundation, fundamental to a world of delicious vegan and gluten-free “vanilla dough and stuff” cookies, not base as in immoral.

Buffalo Cauliflower Things

Whatever genius came up with this “cooking hack,” it’s now common knowledge. No less than four blogs (and many more than that) list the same darn recipe, and so, four sources = common knowledge = no need to cite.

Updated Cornbread, in Muffin Format, with Sourdough Variation

Cornbread, cornbread, always will be mine…

Yeah, that was an attempt to play on And One’s “Military Fashion Show.” “Girlfriend’s girlfriends never could be mine,” girlfriend = GF, GF also = gluten-free, get it?

I made so much cornbread (like, a batch a week) when I first became gluten-free in 2011. My recipe then was heavily fruit-based, though I’ve made other variations since, including applesauce-really-fast, basil-beer, and blueberry
