I’ve been indulging in sweet treats a lot lately. But I’ve have been focused recently on finding treats that have ingredients that are low in white, processed sugar and gluten free. Since my family loves to have a sweet treat in the evening after dinner, I had to figure out something to make that we could all enjoy.
So, I went on a search to find a cookie recipe that was quick, tasty and had ingredients I wanted to use. I stumbled on this cookie recipe and thought it was too good to be true. But after making it (twice!) I realized that it wasn’t!
This cookie recipe is one to keep forever. It has very few ingredients and is yummy eaten warm right out of the oven. They’re unbelievably good! I made some tweaks to the original recipe, adding in some spices, and chocolate chips (which are optional, but highly recommended!), but the recipe is still quick and easy.
These cookies are:
They’re also vegan, gluten-free, and paleo.
I hope you enjoy them as much as our family did! And if you make them, let me know how you enjoyed them in the comments. Share this recipe with your friends and family too!
