    Healthy Cookies?

    Yes, that is right, I said “Healthy Cookies”.  :)  I have taken a liking to 2 cookbooks that I recently checked out of the library.  The 2 books are Veganomicon, which I now own, and Eat, Drink & Be Vegan, which I am about to own.  ;)  No, I am not vegan or even vegetarian, but I don’t eat meat daily.  I love veggie based dishes & find myself craving them.  I love all kinds of beans & lentils and all the different varieties out there. 

    I happened upon this recipe for Super-Charge Me! Cookies and figured out that it would be very easy to modify to be gluten-free.  The changes that I made are:

    Bob’s Red Mill GF Oats for the quick oats

    Bob’s Red Mill Sorghum Flour for the spelt flour

    Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil for the canola oil

    The results were amazing!  These cookies are so addicting!  I am glad that they are healthy because I certainly don’t feel bad eating them for breakfast now!  ;)  LOL!

    I did use raisins for my dried fruit & chocolate chips, too.  I might try nuts or maybe dried cherries, blueberries or chopped dried figs next time. 

    Definitely a keeper of a recipe! :)  Even super picky Jon loved these!  One change he asked me to make…. leave out the raisins next time, though, because he prefers chocolate chips.  Umm…no!  LOL!
