Makes two dozen cookies.
These cookies are a favourite of grown-ups and kids alike, especially in my home! I love these cookies because I always have the ingredients on hand to make them. Plus, since they’re so easy to make, they’re a great way to get my daughter involved in the cooking. They taste just as yummy with raisins if you don’t want the refined sugar in chocolate chips.
Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C). Grease cookie sheet with coconut oil, or cover with parchment paper.
In food processor, pulse oats until ground to a coarse flour texture for oat flour.
In large bowl, combine oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt.
In small bowl, mash bananas with a fork. Add melted coconut oil and maple syrup. Mix together. Add banana mixture to dry mixture and mix until combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
Place by spoonfuls onto baking sheet about 1 in (2.5 cm) apart. Bake for 8 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes, then remove and let cool on a cooling rack for 5 to 10 minutes.
Store for up to 5 days in the fridge or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

This Asian-inspired stir-fry takes full advantage of the crunch Brussels sprouts achieve when they’re heated quickly. The sweet-and-sour sauce delivers a tangy edge, and tempeh offers plant-based protein and a blast of umami. If you want meat in the dish, you can replace tempeh with ground pork. Ready, set, go Stir-frying is a cooking method that thrives on speed. That means you want to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go into the pan. That also means no chopping on the fly.
Two fall stalwarts—rutabaga and Swiss chard—team up to bring seasonal flavour to these baked savoury cakes. A topping of velvety cashew cream adds a little extra spark. Rutabaga burgers, anyone? You can also prepare these cakes burger-style in a skillet. Simply form rutabaga and chard mixture into burger-sized patties and cook in greased skillet over medium-high, until golden brown on both sides.
If you’re feeling a bit burnt out when it comes to your typical morning repast, consider pivoting to this bowl of nutrition and quintessential fall flavours. It might just be the cozy sweater of the breakfast world. If you need extra energy to power your day, you can scatter on some crunchy granola. The sweet potato mixture can be made a day or two in advance and reheated in the microwave before serving. Pick of the crops For sautéing purposes, you want to use pears that keep their shape when heated. Bosc and Anjou are two good options. Fuji, Cortland, Honeycrisp, and Empire are excellent apple choices for heating in the skillet, as they won’t turn too mushy.
