I’m super lucky because I have friends who love food as much as I do. So when we get together it is always a main topic as well as what we do when we’re together – eat.
Many of you might know Nadja as @mylifeisdelicious on Instagram as she has stunning photos of vegan food she makes. And I’ll let you in on a little secret: her food is as good as it looks! Today she’s sharing her vegan oat-chocolate chip cookies with us.
When my fiancé and I broke up a few months ago, I literally baked myself to death. I mean, what else was there to do after coming home from work? I am not a tv person, I am taking a break from books as I had to read so much during my studies, I had no one to share my daily rants about my workplace with anymore and I didn’t want to waste my time stalking random people’s instagram accounts :-D
So I baked.
Breads, muffins, cookies. You name it. I baked it (and ate it). But over time I realized that I wanted to share my baked goods with other people too! Mostly because I am all about sharing with others but also because it was unfair to be the only person who was gaining weight muahahha.
So that’s when I started to bring things I baked to the teacher’s room at work, to gatherings with friends, to my parent’s place on weekends, even on dates. And believe me: the guys were IMPRESSED. Some of them just turned out to be genuine a-holes but that had absolutely nothing to do with my cookies. I swear. Cuz these cookies are awesome.
Sometimes I just want to send them an anonymous parcel with one cookie so that when they eat them they will see my face, realize how stupid they were and cry because they will never EVER be able taste another cookie of mine again. Ever.
