Favorite Treats

My sweet mother-in-law recently asked for gluten and dairy-free treat recipes that she could make for my oldest daughter. I thought I would share some of our favorites!

Black Bean brownies – These are her absolute favorite. She requests them for special occasions. I use coconut sugar.

Flourless Chocolate Chip Chickpea  Blondies – Made with Enjoy Life chocolate chips!

Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies – Also made with Enjoy Life Chocolate chips!

Throw together chocolate chip/oat cookies

  • Choose your fat – coconut oil, nut butter, or avocado ~1/2 cup
  • Choose your sweetener – 1 ripe banana, stevia, or 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg or 1 flax egg
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • Add gluten-free certified oats until it “looks right.” Then fold in Enjoy Life chocolate chips.
  • Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.
