Earlier this week I shared this recipe with you guys. I wanted to keep the chocolate and banana theme going strong so today we're going to visit the land of chocolate chip banana cookies!
Rarely do I ever make baked goods to share on here. I just don't enjoy them as much as my raw ones usually. But every once in a while I attempt some baked foods. It's so funny how much my tastebuds have evolved over time and I wouldn't have it any other way. I love the way that I eat because it makes me feel amazing and gives me the energy to go throughout my days in a positive way.
Let's be honest though, as long as we're eating plant based vegan foods, that's all that matters at the end of the day. Right?!
