Who remembers Mother’s Oatmeal Cookies? You know, those crisp, melt-in-your mouth spiced cookies with a sweet icing. I had a hankering the other night. My boyfriend’s favorite type of cookies is oatmeal, so I figured it was a good choice. I looked at a few recipes online and decided to try a vegan version. I’ve been successful using nut butter in the past, and chose to use a combination of both tahini and almond butter. I didn’t want a strong nut butter flavor, so I used the Tahini since it doesn’t have a strong flavor in baked goods. The almond butter adds a slight nuttiness. Filled with some spice and a delicious icing, these babies came out perfectly.

If you’re looking for something lighter, but still decadent tasting, this is your cake. It is lightened up with the use of banana and Greek yogurt instead of butter or oil. Honestly, no one would know. The texture of this cake is rich, spongy and chewy all at the same time. The flavors are warming with the pumpkin spice and cinnamon, and the yogurt brings out a buttermilk note.
I had the pleasure of participating in the “Latitude 45 Innovative Kitchen” campaign, and it was a delicious and fun experience. I received a variety package filled with amazing prime cut cold smoked salmon filets and slices, along with a recipe to create. The product was extremely high in quality, and it came packed in dry ice. The recipe that I received was called the “Smoked Salmon Dubliner Cheese Dip.” Immediately looking at the ingredients, I thought the dish sounded amazing. Oh, was I definitely right! I mean, cheese, smoked salmon, garlic…how could you go wrong?
