-VEGAN-

Few weeks ago I bought a great vegan food/active lifestyle book (VEGAN VITALITY). In the book there is plenty of really great recipes including that one. You know me for few years now.. you know that I almost never let the recipe untouched, hahaha! So I changed few things. It’s like the perfect snack while working out, it’s so guilt-free, so delicious and healthy! It’s almost like a breakfast bar but in a ball/cookie shape. My husband liked them a lot and even big boy Auguste, who was happy to eat cookies (haha but didnt knew they were super healthy, muahahhaha, it’s the same when he eat homemade popsicles, lol, I make them with tofu and fruits.)

It’s not wasy everyday to try not to snack, but since I’m working out every day, I try my best to bring even healthier ideas (I was already eating super healthy)

I’ll try next time to make them with oat flour and adding nuts or hemp seeds too.

* In another bowl combine the banana, flax, soy milk, coconut oil, agave and vanilla.

* Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix well.

* Fold in the chia seeds, raisins and oats.

You can freeze them to eat them later. I froze half the batch and they were still delicious after going in the freezer for few days.
