I have been doing a few grain free baking experiments lately. The older Penelope gets, the more sugar seems to pop up everywhere. Her memory of those times I have given her a cookie at a party or special time are strong, so she asks for cookies a lot. I don’t want to deprive her, but I want to keep grain and sugar consumption down to the bare minimum for both of us. I have such a sweet tooth. I have bought good organic cookies or cookie dough for years, but I want to try to only eat cookies if I made them myself.
So when I saw this grain free cookie recipe, I knew I had to try it. But most of the time when I make a healthy cookie, all it does is make me want a damn Thin Mint even more because it was so unsatisfying. So my interpretation of the recipe has more natural sweet things added to it, because if you are gonna call it a cookie, it needs to taste like a dern cookie!
