Cinammon Banana Berry Vega "Cookies"
I hesistate to call these cookies, though...I did not adapt these from another recipe; this one is mine, & it's part of the reason that it calls for such a large amount of ingredients. I couldn't get the consistency I wanted, and kept trying to add more dry stuff. They came out very squishy. And while I was able to get them formed into beautiful little hearts for the camera, they certainly didn't come off of the plate that way...I tried & tried to roll them into balls, or do anything with them. However, the batter finally ended up in a bowl that I placed in the refigerator. As mildly frustrating as they were to work with, I have absolutely no complaints about their amazing taste. Cinammon Banana Berry Goodness with a spoon? I wouldn't have it any other way :)
