Healthy Vegan Friday #49 Raw Oreo Cookies, Vegan Egg Cravings and Kale Granola

Welcome to Healthy Vegan Fridays Blog Hop!  Well my baby is now almost 4 weeks old and his feeding pattern is still a bit crazy.  I spend an hour feeding him then after all the burping and nappy changes have been done, I put him to bed, express some more milk for his next feed and before long he’s awake hungry again and the cycle starts all over again.  My little girl is getting no attention at all at the moment and I am like a walking zombie so I really hope this pattern doesn’t last too much longer.  I know it’s always crazy at the start with newborns.  I guess at the time it just feels like forever but it really won’t last too long in the grand scheme of things.


toddler and baby napping bliss

My toddler never normally naps so this is a rare moment of pure bliss.

Thankfully my husband has taken 1 day off work for the next couple of months so he’s taken my little girl to the park and my baby will hopefully stay asleep long enough for me to get this post written.

Can you guest post for Green Thickies?

I’m also grateful for the great guest posts that I’ve been given to help see me through this time.  I am getting around to replying to everyone slowly so please bear with me.  If you are a blogger who loves adding greens to your food then feel free to send me a guest post to greenthickies at  I am looking for blended recipes that include leafy greens and healthy ingredients.  Thank you!

During all these slow feeds loads of ideas for my blog have been circulating around my head.  It’s frustrating not to be able to do much work at the moment but watch this space in the future as I’ve got so many fun ideas that you will hopefully love.

In the meantime check out all these fabulous vegan recipes and articles and the highlights from last week.

Healthy Vegan Fridays is a weekly blog hop hosted by myself, Carrie @ Carrie on Vegan, and Gabby @ The Veggie Nook.  It is a place to share your healthy vegan recipes that make use of whole ingredients and minimize the use of processed and refined foods.

Most Popular Submissions

1: Raw Oreo Cookies

Raw Oreo Cookies

Oh wow!  How I wish I had more time for food preparation so I could try things like this!



What to do when a vegan gets cravings for eggs?  I could write a whole blog post about this!  An interesting debate.

3: Kale Granola (or Raw Coconut Almond Kale Chips)

Kale Granola (or Raw Coconut Almond Kale Chips)

Oh yum!  This looks like my kind of food.  I’ve actually not made kale chips for a long time and this will be one of the first things I’ll make when I get some time back!

My Favourites from Last Week



I usually feature recipes that I either intend to make or would make if I had more time using easy to find healthy ingredients.  I do intend to make this one and use it to top my green smoothies with in my quest to get healthier.

Not-your-average Fruit Salad

Not-your-average Fruit Salad

With my limited time I usually make a big batch of salad and a big batch of fruit salad to last a good few days.  I always add fruit to my savoury salad but why not the other way around and combine the two?  Look how colourful this looks!  What a great idea.

Non-Salad Days for Great Salads!

Non-Salad Days for Great Salads!

And to continue my salad theme, I really needed some more ideas than just lettuce, cucumber and tomato as I’ve suffering from a serious case of baby brain.  I love the idea of making batches of salad.

  1. Thanks for the feature Katherine! I’m eager to try those kale chips too!!

  2. Congratulations on such an adorable new addition to your family. And even more congratulations for getting your two little ones to nap at the same time!! Enjoy those moments. ;) I can totally – my son was a little younger than three when my daughter was born. Thanks for hosting (don’t know how you find the time)!

  4. Good Morning! Finances seem to always be tight, but I think we all agree that nutrition shouldn’t suffer. Today I’m sharing a post on how to grind flour without a grain mill. Plus, an excellent sourdough bread recipe that’s perfect for beginning sourdough bakers! As always, thanks for hosting! ~Tiffany
