When I went on my baking spree this weekend, I attempted to make carrot cake quinoa cookies with my own gluten free tweaks. Let’s just say that I was not impressed and therefore they will not be shared. Whenever something I make doesn’t turn out well I usually scurry around to find something that I know will be good. In this case I defaulted to the Oh She Glows website because I have never made something from there that wasn’t delicious (and vegan AND often gluten free).
They are similar to another banana based cookie that she has that is AMAZING and really quick to throw together. This recipe called for dates though which I happened to have on hand. Medjool dates are a larger date than normal and I have seen them more frequently in regular grocery stores, but if you can’t find them there I have seen them at the Asian stores.
You can find the recipe by clicking on their name above. I didn’t change anything in the recipe, so I’m not going to reproduce it here. Angela has a cookbook coming out March 4th and if you preorder and send her the receipt, you can get a bonus e-book with 10 more recipes. I got my copy yesterday and I am VERY excited. I can’t wait for the whole thing to come! For more information on preordering and the e-book, click here.
I am skipping the gym tonight because my legs are still sore from Monday so I may have overdone it a bit (big surprise). I will try running this weekend and see how my knee holds up.
I hope you all have a great Thursday and remember the weekend is almost here!
Question of the day: How do you respond to baking failures?
