3 mashed ripe bananas
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 cups old fashioned oats
1/4 cup almond milk
1/2 cup vegan, Fair Trade chocolate chips OR chopped dried fruit or raisins
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. cinnamon
Pre-heat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients together. Place small spoonfuls of dough on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Green Smoothie
One handful (or more!) of greens. Spinach, romaine and other lettuces are good ones to start with because of their mild flavor, but you can use kale, chard, or any greens you like.
1-2 ripe bananas, fresh or frozen
2 cups fresh or frozen fruit (berries, melons, peaches, pears, etc.)
1-2 cups water (enough to blend)
Add all ingredients in order given and blend until smooth. Use more water for a more liquid smoothie or less for a more shake-like drink that you can eat with a spoon. (Using frozen fruits, especially bananas, will make the smoothie thicker and creamier.) Drink within 2-3 days.
Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and
salt in a large bowl. Slowly mix in
soymilk, adding more, if necessary, until the batter is smooth and spreadable
(not too thick and not too thin).
Coat large skillet or griddle with cooking
spray, and heat over medium heat.
Scoop 1/4 cup batter onto hot skillet or griddle
and sprinkle blueberries onto batter.
Cook 3-5 minutes, or until batter begins to
bubble and pancake edges start to turn brown.
Flip, and cook 2-3 minutes or more, or until
cooked through and browned on both sides.
Repeat with remaining batter and blueberries.
