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).
Behold the banana bread muffin tops:
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?
