I stumbled upon a vegan bakery the other day and thought I would treat myself to some cookies (which is rare) and support the biz. I paid $5 bucks for 2 small cookies. They were SO sweet and left me feeling groggy and tired the next morning. Sugar hangover.
That’s why I wanted to share this recipe with you guys. It’s easy, relatively healthy and really delicious. Better yet there is no sugar added (minus the chocolate chips) and they are very cheap to make. (more…)

Firm tofu crumbles easily and has a texture (when cooked) that is similar to scrambled eggs. You can freeze it prior to use to give it even more texture, too (I used it straight outta the fridge).
