Friday Favs!

Hello friends! TGIF! Woot Woot!!

I just wanted to share some of my Friday Favs from the week!

Vegan Gluten Free Tahini Oat Cookies

Makes about 24 cookies

If you love sesame, you will love these cookies, rich in flavor and sweet form the agave syrup.

(I adapted this recipe from the Whole Foods Original)


1 cup GF steal cut oats (bobs mill)
1 cup brown rice flour flour
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup tahini
1/4-1/2 cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 cup agave syrup


Preheat oven to 350°F. Grind oats in a blender until coarsely ground (some whole flakes should remain intact). Do not wash out blender.

In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, flour, salt and baking powder.

Place tahini, coconut oil, vanilla, cornstarch and agave syrup in blender and process until smooth. Stir this mixture into oat mixture.

Drop tablespoons of batter on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until cookies are golden brown on bottom and puffed.

Fashion obsession for the week

I just love that red skirt mixed with a fall pattern! I’m on the look out for an outfit just like this one! It’s so convenient that modest skirts are in style these days:) makes life a little easier!

Friday Favorite Inspiration!

Let this one stew over the weekend and feel ready for your Monday!

There is no limit to the things that we can do! It’s about challenging the limits we set on ourselves and achieving those things we thought we couldn’t.  I am my biggest critic but my greatest motivator.  It is you.  Your choice.  Your results.  Your happiness.  Happy weekend friends!

What are your Friday favs?

What’s your latest fashion obsession??
