Did you know??
Although using avocados and bananas are all the buzz now to get soft and shiny hair, all it will get you is a messy kitchen and bathroom. These products are great to help your hair for one day, but the proteins in them are way too big for your hair to absorb. And unless you are going to use them each day (yikes!), then you should head to a beauty supply store and check out some Vegan products that use "hydrolyzed" proteins - proteins from avocados and bananas that actually are small enough to help your hair.

Chocolate Christmas: Glazed Mint Chocolate Donut Cookies


Photobucket
A note to all: If you'd rather not be Santa-sized this season, tis better to make these bite-size!

2/3 c sugar
1/4 c canola oil
1/4 c vanilla almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
1 c flour
1/2 c cocoa
1 tbsp arrowroot
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Combine sugar and oil, allow to settle. Add almond milk and extracts. Sift in all dry ingredients in order given.

 Dough will be oilly and loose-feeling. Roll dough into small balls, about 1-2 tbsps. Lightly push down cookies with two fingers. Bake at 350 degrees for 7-8 minutes.

Glaze:
1 c confectionary sugar
4 tbsp almond milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp arrowroot

Dip cookies down into glaze. Wait until just dry to add sprinkles or sugars. Pictured is Wilton's Mint Crunch Christmas Blend.
