Nice blog roundup! I actually love reading healthy recipes also. But sad to say, I haven't saved all the sites that I browsed. Anyway, thanks for sharing those sites. I might also check some healthy food recipes there.

Thank you! Now I have some new blogs to read...

Here is a great vegan oatmeal cookie recipe (my kids love them...and so do i)These cookies taste so good that you will find yourself with a new problem, convincing your friends, vegan and non-vegan alike, that there are no animal ingredients in them at all.

To begin, the ingredient list:

1 and 1/2 cups of FLOUR. (Go for about a tablespoon less than this, actually. And I use organic flour).

1 teaspoon BAKING SODA

1 teaspoon SALT

3/4 cup of CANOLA OIL

2 tablespoons vanilla SOY MILK

1 & 1/3 cups of UNREFINED SUGAR

2 EGG REPLACER EGGS [I use ENERG EGG REPLACER and have found this to work best. This can be found in most health food stores. One could also use any one of the following: soaked and drained flax seeds (soak flax seeds
for about an hour or two, drain the seeds out and use the remaining mush) , half a banana, tapioca starch with water or simply two tablespoons of water).

1 1/2 tablespoons VANILLA EXTRACT (yes, 1 and 1/2 tablespoons. Oh, and use the real thing, it does make a difference).

2 1/2 cups quick organic OATMEAL

12 oz. of organic, CHOCOLATE CHIPS (Tropical Source makes the best chocolate chips, in my opinion. They are organic and use unrefined sugar. You can also find these in most health food markets, or ask them to order them for you if they don't).

Now, how to mix and bake them:

Heat your oven to 350 degrees.

Mix FLOUR, BAKING SODA and SALT together. Set aside.

Mix together the OIL and SUGAR. Mix until creamy.

Mix your EGG REPLACER well (this is very important).

Add the egg replacer mixture to the sugar/oil mixture. Add about a third of the egg replacer miture at a time, stirring it in a bit before adding the rest.

Add the SOY MILK.

Add the VANILLA.

Stir this mixture until it is a uniform color (this will not take long).

Slowly stir in the FLOUR mixture. Mix this well.

Stir in OATMEAL and CHOCOLATE-CHIPS.

Place large tablespoons full of the batter onto an ungreased cookie sheet (an air filled cookie sheet works best, as the air between the two layers of the sheet keeps the bottom of baked items from burning).

Bake the cookies for about 9 to 13 minutes (ovens vary in temperature). Check them by gently pressing on the top of one of the cookies (BE CAREFUL! The chocolate-chips become like molten rock when cooking. I have burned myself more than once on a hot chocolate-chip). If the inside looks moist, but not too wet, they are probably done. It might take you a couple of tries to get the time down, so bake only a few at a time when starting out. Do not, I repeat, do not expect to see them turn slightly brown when done cooking. Without real eggs, they will not get that dark. They will, however, turn a golden tan.

When they are done, remove them from the oven and allow them to sit on the sheet for about a minute or two before placing them on a wire rack. Be careful with them as they tend to be quite delicate until they have cooled.

You will find that they do not melt down exactly like cookies made using animal ingredients, but neither you, nor anyone else will be able to taste the difference; IF you make them correctly.

Very cool. Can't wait to try some new ideas. I have just started a blog for the cyclists that I coach. The big issue for a lot of my clients is that they want healthy food but don't want to spend too long in the kitchen preparing it. So I'm striving to provide healthy and relatively quick preparation recipes that are also a good fit for families. www.blog.breakawaytrainingonline.com.

I agree. Healthy food is so much more satisfying than the fatty stuff (although I like that too).

Thank you so much for the gluten-free and sugar-free blog! I just recently found out about my severe allergies to dairy and wheat as well as my intollerance/sensitivity to sugar and caffeine and have been feeling quite deprived. Now I can go look on her blog and substitute soy milk for regular (or nut milk whenever I try it) and have ideas for food for me! THANK YOU!

Hi, i’ve been browsing around your blog and it seem really really neat. I’m making a family blog and struggling to make it look great. How hard was it to create your blog? Could someone like me, an amateur do that? I really wanna to make something like this. Just wanna tell u your home page seem broken when I browse using Mozilla.

Nowatec Technology

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really
something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

Hi. I needed to drop you a quick word to specific my thanks. I have been following your blog for a month or so and have picked up some good data as well as enjoyed the way you’ve got structured your site. I am trying to run my own weblog but I think its too normal and I want to focus more on smaller topics. Being all issues to all folks just isn’t all that its cracked as much as be.

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon

A little bit of internet browsing and discovered your blog looks somewhat screwed up in my K-meleon browser. However , fortunately scarcely anyone makes use of it any more but you may want to take a look into it.
