Vegan Oatmeal Bars

Even though I can say that there are no animal products in this cookie (The chocolate chips might not be vegan), it is not low in sugar. If you want the bars lower in sugar, you would have to try a sugar substitute for the brown sugar. 

I baked these bars in my air fryer on the baking setting.


I used the following ingredients in the bars:

1/2 c. coconut oil

1/2 c. shortening

1 c. brown sugar

1/4 c. flax seed mixed with 1/4 cup water

1 1/2 c. oatmeal

3/4 c. flour

1/2 t. baking soda

1/2 t salt

1/2 t vanilla

1/2 c. chocolate chips

Mix the coconut oil, shortening, and brown sugar. Add the remaining ingredients.

I baked these in my baking tray that came with the air fryer. You can bake these in a small baking pan at 350 degrees (F) for about 15-20 minutes until done.

Enjoy this sweat treat with some healthy stuff in it!

Tasty Eats - Mexican Food

In this version of Tasty Eats, we went through a phase of making Mexican food.

My husband made fish tacos with corn salsa and coleslaw. 

My son my enchiladas and a Mexican cole slaw. He made the sauce from scratch instead of using a can. I think he added cumin and lime juice to your otherwise typical coleslaw. I am not sure.

I found a one-pot Mexican Rice recipe Turns out it is tasty rolled up in a flour tortilla.

Finally, I have the only non-Mexican food. It is a Butterfinger poke cake. I made a yellow cake in an eight-inch square pan. Poked holes in it so that the pudding and Cool Whip mixture can get into the holes. I had crushed Butterfinger on top and in the pudding mixture. I also think I added some to the cake batter.

That is it for this edition of Tasty Eats.
