Yummy! Your spreads always look so good. For dessert, I have a fantastic plant based recipe for chocolate chip scones. I make sure to always have them around.

Thanks dryphtyr! I enjoy picking out ingredients that I feel like eating and then just making up something while counting up the calories. This was definitely one of the best dinners I've made. Will cook again. I don't think I've ever had scones...they sound delicious!

These are totally addictive. Any time I want something sweet, these take care of it. I think they're about 260 calories, but I don't track calories or control portions, so for me that's irrelevant. I posted a pic in my journal a while back, so feel free to check that out. My modifications: I got an ice cream scoop with the little wire that sweeps around. Makes it really easy. Instead of grain sweetened chocolate chips, which are hard to find & really expensive, I use allergen free chocolate chips. The only ingredients are cocoa powder & cane sugar. For the oat flour, I put rolled oats into a food processor. Doing it that way, they have an amazing texture. For the applesauce, I get the single serve unsweetend packs. One container is a half cup, so I don't even have to measure. For the almond butter, most brands add palm oil, so check labels. The stuff is expensive, but so little is used in the recipe that it's not a big deal. To eat, heat in the microwave for 10 to 12 seconds & serve with a glass of unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Chocolate Chip Scones 40 min, 2 servings A lightly sweetened quickbread, these scones are dotted with chocolate chips and make for a great accompaniment to a cup of tea! Makes 12 scones. The serving size is 1 scone, so enjoy these throughout the week as a breakfast, snack, or dessert. 1⁄2 cup plant milk 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 3 cups oat flour 2 tablespoons baking powder 1⁄2 cup cane sugar (or any dry sweetener) 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt 1⁄2 cup grain-sweetened chocolate chips 1⁄2 cup unsweetened applesauce 1⁄3 cup almond butter YOU'LL NEED baking sheet parchment paper whisk mixing bowl (3) sifter dry measuring cup or ice-cream scoop wire rack Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Whisk plant milk with apple cider vinegar in a bowl. Let stand for about 5 minutes, then add vanilla. Sift oat flour, baking powder, dry sweetener, and salt into a larger bowl. Add chocolate chips and mix well to combine. Using a fork, mix applesauce with almond butter in another bowl, then incorporate applesauce mixture into flour mixture until crumbly. Add plant milk mixture and stir until just moistened. Do not overmix. Use a ⅓ dry measuring cup or an ice-cream scoop (mist with a little water first so batter comes out easily) to transfer scones to prepared baking sheet. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 24 minutes. Let scones cool on baking sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to let cool completely. Store any leftover scones in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.

Sorry for the lack of formatting in the recipe. It's Fat Secret's fault

Also, since I make my own flour, I don't use a sifter

Everything about this picture is wonderful, but I just got to say I love that table cloth.

How did you make the smoothie? 
21 Feb 18 by member: Emmakate Ostrom
Thanks everyone! I do feel like I've gone back to basics. I'm happy with it because it makes my life so much easier (less decisions to make). For the smoothie I added these ingredients: - 1 medium banana - 200 ml soy milk - handful of spinach - about a cup of frozen strawberries - Serving of peanut butter (no added oil/sugar) - tbsp chia seeds - tbsp flax seeds I used to hate making smoothies cause it took forever to measure everything out (and the consistency wouldn't always be the same) but I've gotten the hang of it. I use one of those single serving blenders and just rinse off the blades right after (to make cleaning easy). Most of my ingredients are within easy reach of the blender so it's easy to put together. Hope that helps!

Is that 1150 cals? BTW it looks amazing! 
21 Feb 18 by member: jenniejung
Yep! 1148 is what FatSecret calculated when I entered everything in :) The smoothie is pretty dense with peanut butter and the banana. Plus the seeded toast was over 300 cals itself.
