Cookies and "Cream"

ChocoChip-Pecan Cookies and
Vanilla-Banana Ice "Cream"

I really have to watch my sweet tooth, it gets easily carried away. But every once in awhile, I give in to my inner child and make cookies… and ice cream. And besides, these cookies have quinoa and no refined sugars.

ChocoChip/Pecan Cookies

You'll need... 

1 c sprouted, whole wheat flour or brown rice flour for GF
1 c oat flour*
1/4 c quinoa flour*
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla bean powder or 1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 c coconut oil
1/2 c applesauce
1/2 c coconut sugar
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1/3 c nut milk
1/2 c chocolate chips
1/2 c chopped pecans

*you can grind whole oats or quinoa in a high-speed blender
*may sub different flours, if needed

Let's get started!

Preheat your oven to 375*. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix all of the wet ingredients in a small bowl and then add to the dry. Combine and then fold in chips and pecans. Scoop spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. 

Vanilla-Banana Ice "Cream"

Mix all ingredients in a high speed blender until creamy. Simple as that.
