Why is this so important? Well, meat consumption is responsible for a huge percentage of global warming, animal fat and protein is linked to cancer causing disease and KILLING ANIMALS IS MEAN!

The recipe I have for you today is dear to my heart. I love oatmeal cinnamon cookies. My mom used to make them when I was young and they were the first cookie I ever remember helping her make (ok…I licked the beaters) We always made them on rainy days because they were so comforting. Cinnamon, oats…warms my heart!
These cookies are made with chickpeas, walnuts and oats, but they are not a health food. There are two types of sugar and not of the banana or date variety. Brown sugar and maple syrup.
They take little time to prepare and have a short baking time. I know these will become a staple in your house for years to come!
Vegan Cinnamon Brownies
1.5 cups cooked chickpeas
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 c uncooked oats
1 t vanilla
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
2 T cinnamon
1/2 c crushed walnuts
Preheat the oven to 350. In a food processor, combine all the ingredients except the walnuts. Process until combined (about 30 seconds). Mix in the walnuts and pour into a sprayed square baking dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until you see the edges of the brownies start to pull away from the pan. Allow to cool. Devour!
What is one comfort food of your childhood?
