A sneak peek at the Vegan Power Bites in Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Quick & Easy more
I’m not Paleo — but it sounds exciting. Like an all-access pass to the Museum of Natural History. After hours. I’m fairly certain it would make me fat, thought, and I’d miss cake that wasn’t made of almonds. But still. Excitement.
I’m not so into Raw Food, since I really like Cooked Food. Except in a salad.
I’m no Vegan — but it sounds virtuous. Like maybe it comes with bragging rights.
I do dabble a bit in vegan virtuosity. I have an Isa Chandra Moskowitz book and everything. We totally sometimes do Meatless Mondays (when I remember not to cook the beans with salt pork).
I am gluten-free, and that’s that.
I’m really digging all the power bar type deals I’ve been working on the for the second cookbook, Gluten Free Shortcuts. It’s great to wake up in the morning and have a protein-rich breakfast all ready to go. Shortcut!
These little Vegan Power Bites can be kept raw, but I like to bake ‘em for a bit so they’re not at all sticky. They can be little bites…
… or they can be bars (but I’d only make them bars if you’re gonna bake ‘em or they’d be hard to slice).
I can’t wait to share this recipe with you — and so many other ready-in-a-flash meals, treats, and breads — in the Fall 2012.
P.S. UPDATE: The new cookbook, which ended up titled Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Quick & Easy, is ready for you! Please support the blog and pick up a copy!
