Fall Vegan Recipes
Sweet Potato Brownie
1 ripe avocado
1 cup sweet potato puree
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 T Neat Egg replacer or flax egg (flax seed mixed with 4 T water (allow to sit for 2 minutes)
1/2 cup oat flour (grind oats in the food processor)
1 scoop Chocolate Protein Powder
1/2 cup Organic Cocoa Powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup walnuts (optional)
2 scoops Chocolate Protein mixed with 1 T water at a time. You will need very little water, so keep stirring. Too much water will make it very runny and you want a pudding-like consistency.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, combine avocado, sweet potato puree, yogurt, vanilla, stevia and egg replacer and blend with a hand mixer until combined well. In a small bowl, whisk together oat flour, protein powder, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda.
Add dry mix to wet mix and combine well (fold in walnuts if desired). Spread batter in a 9" square baking pan and bake for 30-40 minutes or until inserted toothpick pulls clean.
Allow brownies to cool for 20 minutes before slicing.
Creamy Pumpkin Protein Smoothie
My new favorite morning breakfast treat has become this sweet, high protein and very filling pumpkin smoothie. This simple Fall breakfast smoothie has only 4 simple ingredients; almond milk, pumpkin puree, banana & Protein Powder. I like to mix it up by adding coconut milk/cream, flax seed or other flavorings like pumpkin spice, vanilla, or stevia.
1 cup Almond Milk
1/4 cup Pumpkin Puree
1/2 Banana (eliminate and replace with stevia if you want to lower the carbs in this smoothie)
1 Scoop Protein Powder
2 T Flax Seed Meal
Place all ingredients into a Blender. Blend until smoothie. Bottoms up!
