I plan to give these allergy-free breakfast cookies a try this week. I cannot give any credit because I found this recipe via Pinterest and it doesn't link back to a blog, so I apologize for that. I have to share it with you! Try to find organic dried cranberries that are sweetened with something other than sugar (and let me know where you find them! I have yet to do so!)
Breakfast Cookie: no flour, no sugar, no dairy added. Ingredients: 1.5 cups of oats, 2-3 super ripened bananas, 1 cup unsweetened applesauce, handful of craisins, cinnamon to taste. Mix, throw on a baking sheet @ 350 for 35 minutes.
I'll let you know how they turn out!
Here is my menu plan for this week:
Monday: I am out, so the boys will wing it. :)
Tuesday: Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken served over rice
Tip: Prep the slow cooker the night before!
Wednesday: Meatloaf, smashed Yukon gold potatoes (here is one recipe that looks delicious - you can just use coconut milk and butter/ghee - skip the sour cream) and green beans
Tip: Make the meatloaf the night before - I will split this into two loaves and cook both of them, then slice and freeze one for another quick meal!
Thursday: Slow Cooker Vegetarian Mexican Lasagna (I use half the cheese called for)
Tip: Prep the slow cooker the night before. I was nervous when I did this the first time (worried about soggy tortillas) but it worked great. I use Food For Life sprouted corn tortillas for this recipe.
Saturday: Chicken or Steak on the grill with asparagus and pasta (toss brown rice noodles with olive oil, salt, pepper, basil, a few lemon squeezes and add some grape tomatoes to it - YUM!)
Sunday: Happy Mothers Day! (hoping I don't have to cook!) :)
