Take a mom of 3, stir in 4 vegan cookbooks, add a rounded cup of staying at home, and mix with a hefty pinch of recipe testing!

Really quick post today, as I'm up to my eyeballs this week! But, wanted to share this pic of another new cookie recipe. These have really good-for-you stuffins' like whole-grain flours, coconut, hemp seeds, sunflower (or pumpkin) seeds, and only maple syrup and brown rice syrup as sweeteners. Not a dessert kind of cookie, but a satisfying, toothsome, slightly sweet pick-me-up that hits the spot just when you need it!
I make these bigger than my standard drop cookies, and when I was scooping these on to my cookie sheet, all I could think was "these cookies are MONSTA"- in size and healthy ingredients. That was it, the name stuck - Monsta! Cookies.
Plus, I think the cute furry bloke that taught us "C is for cookie", would approve (of the name and the cookies). And that's good enough for me.
