Vegan Freezer Chocolate Pecan Cookies

A Vegan lifestyle isn’t all about boring foods and living off of salads.  We switched to a vegan diet about 4 months ago.  My husband has slowly realized over the past few years that he is allergic to eggs and all dairy products.   Since our family is a live together –  eat together family, if one person has to go on a special diet, we all go on a special diet. 

My kids support their dad by eating a vegan diet at home for the most part.  They are not strict vegans and do eat eggs, cheese, seafood and meat when at school or with friends. 

However,  when you have kids this can still be a challenge but they are both troopers.  They are getting used to trying new things on a daily basis and making up their own minds whether or not it is something they would like to have again.  There have been some real winners and some recipes that have crashed and burned, literally.   

Here is one of the winners that are kid (and husband) friendly.  Vegan Freezer Chocolate Pecan Cookies. A similar recipe was recommend by a friend of mine as one of her favorite go to sweet snacks.
