Blueberry Squares!

My favourite book over the past few months has been by far Dreena Burton’s Let Them Eat Vegan!: 200 Deliciously Satisfying Plant-Powered Recipes for the Whole Family.  I have been making all of the veggie burger recipes in the book, and they are great!  The burgers are healthy, often inexpensive and easy to make, and they taste great.  I recently made the Blueberry Oat Squares, and they are by far the best blueberry squares I’ve ever had!  Full disclosure, I had made some other blueberry squares using a recipe I found online earlier this week, and they were the worst ones I have ever had.  They called for mashed banana mixed in with the blueberries, which sounds good, but when it baked it turned the banana into a terrible concentrated banana mush.  So I’ve been on both extremes of the blueberry square taste spectrum this week.  It has been a pretty wild ride, but I’m happy to say I’ve landed on the good side of the taste spectrum with this recipe.

They are vegan, and have a gluten-free option if you can tolerate oats.  As a bonus, there is no white sugar to be found, just maple syrup.  Seriously delicious.  Every recipe in this book has been a winner!

Cookies!

Thanks to Greg for making up these treats! He decided to double the chocolate chips, which is always a great idea. The cookies are made with oat flour, something I haven’t really used much, but should start using more often. The oats made these cookies chewy and not crumbly, like gluten-free cookies can sometimes be.

So far, this is the only recipe I/Greg has made from one of my newest cookbooks, “Welcoming Kitchen: 200 Delicious Allergen & Gluten-Free Vegan Recipes. I honestly haven’t had a chance to look through many of the recipes yet. However, if the cookies are any indication as to how delicious the rest of the recipes are, this book is sure to be a winner!
