Grain-free Cookies

IMG_9606

Baked goods are a double whammy, as they contain processed starch AND sugar, two major health offenders. Even gluten free cookies, while free of processed wheat, still have processed rice flour and other starches which contain no nutrition and just break down into sugar in our bodies. If we take the starch out of the cookie…we can take away at least one offender.

These cookies are nut butter based, so they have a nice amount of protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. And they are moist and delicious!

Recipe:
preheat oven to 350 degrees

1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup cashew butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1/2 cup chocolate chips*

*any chips can be used: dark or milk chocolate, peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips, or white chocolate chips

mix all ingredients (except chips) into a bowl
after well mixed, add chips
grease a cookie pan
spoon little balls of dough onto pan
bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes

Enjoy!
