• Vegan Cookies and Ice Cream

    Growing up, one of my favorite desserts
    to have was cookies and ice cream.

    There was something about that, that I just totally loved, but as I grew up, and got older, I realized that having cookies and ice cream every time I wanted a dessert wasn’t really going to be the best idea. That’s when I decided, I needed to healthify this amazing treat, and that’s what I’ve done. I will be showing you guys how to make corn flake and oat cookies, and banana ice cream.

    • 1 ¼ cup rolled oats
    • ½ cup maple syrup
    • ½ tsp baking powder
    • 1 cup cornflakes
    • Dash of cinnamon
    • 4 super ripe bananas, frozen
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract


    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    • Mix the dry ingredients together, then add maple syrup and mix together until combined.
    • Form into small balls, flatten and place on a parchment paper on baking sheet. Bake for fifteen minutes.
    • While cookies are baking, blend frozen bananas and vanilla extract together until thick and creamy like ice cream.
    • Place in freezer while the cookies finish baking so it doesn’t melt.
    • Then serve together in a bowl

    And there you have it. Cookies and ice cream healthified, but still just as delicious as the way you would remember it from your childhood.

    My name is Devyn Howard, and I am a vegan food blogger from San Diego, CA. At 11-years-old, I realized that it didn’t morally make sense for me to continue eating meat as I made the connection that the animals on my plate were the same animals I adored when they were alive. From that point on, I dedicated much of my life to promoting vegetarianism, veganism, and cruelty-free living. I’m eager to show the world that veganism can be incredibly easy, fulfilling, and delicious, even while traveling the world. I share restaurant recommendations from around the globe, proving that a cruelty-free lifestyle need not inhibit one’s experience in a new culture. Traveling from Asia, to Australia, through Europe, and the U.S. is always an exciting foodie adventure…even as a vegan! I’m currently based in Los Angeles, CA, and have plans to take over the world one plant-based plate at a time. Join me on my adventure! Connect with Devyn on Instagram. 

  • Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

    I have made it my personal mission to recreate healthy, cruelty-free versions of my all-time favorite recipes. Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies? They’re quick and easy to make on those nights when you just need a treat!

    These cookies are made with oat flour, which makes them gluten free, so even more of your friends can enjoy them. I chose coconut sugar for this recipe because it is quite similar to brown sugar, and has a rich flavor, without the high glycemic index. They’re a great dessert to take to a party due to the fact that most dietary restrictions will allow. If coconuts are a problem, you can always try other delicious flour and sugar options. When I serve these cookies at a get together, I always end up bringing home and empty plate–people love them!


    • 2 Cups Oat Flour
    • 1-1/2 Tbsp Baking Powder
    • Dash of Salt
    • 1/2 Cup Coconut Sugar
    • 1 Tsp Cardamom
    • 1/2 Cup Vegan Chocolate Chips
    • 1/2 Cup Water
    • 1/4 Cup Vegan Butter, softened (any oil will work)
    • 1 Tbsp Vanilla (or choice flavoring)
    • 1 Squirt Lime/Lemon Juice


    • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
    • Mix all dry ingredients together in mixing bowl
    • Combine wet ingredients to dry, slowly adding water to achieve desired consistency. It should resemble cookie dough and form into balls. Add more oat flour or water if needed.
    • Place cookie dough balls about one inch apart on a (vegan) greased cookie sheet.
    • Put cookies in oven for approximately 10-15 minutes, cook times will vary depending on your oven, check at 10 minutes.
    • Remove cookies from oven, let cool for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

    Don’t have time to bake? Due to this recipe’s vegan nature, you can even whip up a batch of edible cookie dough without the worry because it’s okay to eat raw!  Just prepare all of the ingredients, pop in the freezer for about an hour, and indulge!
