book review: Happy Healthy Vegan Kitchen // recipe + giveaway

I remember the very first time I came across Kathy's amazing blog, I was researching Macro Bowls and her gorgeous vegan macro bowl was among the search. I clearly remember how gorgeous the photos were and it was the first time that tempeh ever looked tempting.

Kathy has this warmth that just exudes from every post she writes, this warmth and happy living is also super evident in her latest vegan cook book - Healthy Happy Vegan Kitchen. This cookbook is for everyone, however she has an amazing section in the book that focuses on Kitchen Tools + a Vegan Pantry, along with some pretty awesome wellness tips. When I first started in the Kitchen I always found these sections to be incredibly useful.

I knew instantly what recipe to share the minute I saw it. I mean, who doesn't love cookies! 

However her new book offers so much more than just cookies - however I would totally be OK if she came out with a "HHVK 250 Cookies + Bars" cookbook!

Kathy breaks her book down by sections // breakfast (which starts the chapter off with a tofu scramble, umm YES!), bakery, sandwiches, a whole chapter on BURGERS!and so on.

The ingredients for these cookies are super simple and they come together in a flash. They also have the added bonus of being gluten free + peanut free.
