Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies that are totally vegan. They're also made with pantry staples so you can make them at any time without needing to run to the store.

I’ve never been one for chocolate but during my pregnancy it was a huge craving of mine. My mom made these cookies quite a few times for me when I was pregnant. I ate so many that it’s a little embarrassing. I can’t wait to bake these cookies for my son. He’s partial to breast milk right now so I’m going to have to wait a few years.

I wanted to make a cookie recipe that was made of kitchen staples. Not everyone has eggs handy therefore I wanted to try using oil instead. This recipe is incredibly similar to a traditional chocolate cookie recipe. It’s a great substitute when you’re in a pinch. The good news is that this is also vegan and dairy free.

Let’s Eat | Banana Oat Muffins

Banana Oat Muffins

I came up with this recipe when I was pregnant. I was craving sweets and fruit. I kept coming up with different ways to incorporate fruit into meals. This muffin really hit the sweet spot for breakfast, snacks or dessert.

Banana Oat Muffins

Oats are supposed to help keep your milk flowing when you’re a new mom. Now that I’ve got a little one to feed, these muffins will be perfect for breakfast. I’ve got a great Banana Bread Oatmeal recipe but I’ve found that foods you can eat with one hand, at room temperature while bouncing a baby are important when you’re caring for a newborn.

Banana Oat Muffins

I love love love my leopard print muffin cups. I think they match the type of muffin quite well. I found them at my grocery store but they are also available online at Amazon.
