Tofurky Italian Sausage

Verdict: Yummy!

So, I was walking down the aisle at TJoes and saw this package. I didn't even know they carried Tofurky! Awesome. And it's like $2.50 a package. I usually buy Field Roast at Whole Foods for $5. So, needless to say, I was very curious how this one was going to taste and hoping for the best so I can save money.

I made the sausage with the same 'brat' toppings I normally make. Sauteed onions, saurkraut, ketchup, and mustard.

Verdict? AMAZING! It tasted so good and I can't tell you how excited I am about saving money on one of my favorite meals: Vegan Brats.

On your next Tjoes run, get these with some hot dog buns! It's sooo worth it. :)

Banana Date Cookies

Verdict:  Yummy!!

So good and so good FOR you! My mom has been experimenting with vegan cooking (so proud of you mom!) and bumped into this yummy flourless, sugarless cookie recipe.
We’re not sure where the recipe originated but we’re so glad we found it cuz it’s out of this world. A VERY guilt-free delicious desert!

Here’s the simple recipe:

Banana Date Cookies
3 bananas mashed
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup chopped packed dates
1 cup chopped dried fruit (pineapple)
1 cup raisins (or currants)
1/2 cup of chopped walnuts
1 cup rolled oats

Mash the bananas. Stir vanilla and salt into the bananas.
Add the remaining ingredients except for oats.
Mix together.
Stir in oats.
Spray cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

The coconut makes the cookies a bit crunchy (which is the way i like it) and though you would think from all the highly sweet ingredients it would be overwhelming, it actually turned out just RIGHT! Try these! You’ll family (even non-vegan ones) will love them. (Practically guaranteed.)
