Labour Day weekend marks the last long weekend of the summer season. It’s time for back to school… and back to reality! We enjoyed our summer with you, sharing recipes, tips and tricks with a Cookin’ Greens Twist. But before we say “so long summer!”, Bryn hits us with the ultimate chilled sweet treat with a healthy twist… Thanks Bryn!
What do you want to be doing most on Labour Day weekend? Spending all your time inside cooking for a celebratory gathering, or outside, enjoying one of the last weekends of nice weather? I know that I want to feel the heat of the sun, not the heat of the stove. The itch to get outside into the early September breeze usually intensifies around the time I get around to making the weekend’s dessert. As a result, I need a recipe with minimal prep and bake time so that I can get back to enjoying the outdoors.
The secretly healthy Cookin’ Greens Double Chocolate Cookie Sandwich recipe I have created fits the bill perfectly. Not only does it have a super-quick, 9-minute baking time, but also the prep time is made a breeze with Cookin’ Greens pre-washed and pre-chopped greens.
When they come out of the oven and cool, the chocolate cookies will be more cake-like. Once in sandwich form, with the luscious vanilla icing, stick them in the freezer for about 30 minutes, it’s like sinking your teeth into a soft chilled pillow. While the cookie part is not too sweet, the icing definitely packs a punch, and together, they create the perfect harmony.
Not just for special occasions, this recipe is great for easing the transition back into the realities of school and work life. Simple yet delicious, it’s a perfect mid-week pick-me-up or a fun weekend dessert.
As my last post blogging with Cookin’ Greens this summer, I also wanted to end on a sweet note, to remind all you Cookin’ Greens fans that vegan desserts with healthy ingredients like kale and spinach can be absolutely amazing. Your friends and family will never know. You’ll just have to try it out for yourself!
Summer 2015 is here! This summer we are so excited to have student, vegan blogger, Bryn Ferguson join us for some cooking inspiration with Cookin’ Greens. Frozen vegetables in the summer? You bet and we can’t wait to show you how!
