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!

  1. Congrats. on the Foodie Blogroll!

  2. I love, love, love Veganomicon!! I will have to try Eat, Drink and Be Vegan. My son and I were diagnosed March 2008. My daughter has a wheat allergy. Because of the diagnoses, I have found us eating less and less meat. I agree, I seemto crave veggies more. Thank you for the adaptations!!

  3. I am eating less and less meat too…I’m not sure why. It hasn’t been a conscious decision. I also crave great veggies dishes and, lately, I’ve been craving garbanzo beans. Go figure.

    Love your recipe. (Loved it on FB, too!)

  4. i tried a similar recipe to this once and it was good, so i’ll def try this one :)

  5. [...] zucchini.  You may also have seen me use it in a few recipes lately on my blog, such as:  Super-Charge Me Cookies or Cocoa Coconut Chili.  I really enjoyed the foods that I made using the virgin coconut oil [...]
