I’ve found some pretty darn good vegan cookies. And I’ve encountered some delicious gluten-free cookies. But finding both? That has been a challenge. And trying to find either that is made without the use of refined sugar has proven disappointing–unless you are ok with your cookies being hard and crunchy…which I am not.
Let’s be clear, I am not a baker by trade. Exact measurements? No thanks. I much prefer a little of this and a little of that.
But I wanted cookies!! And I was determined to crack the code to create a cookie that a nutritionist could be proud of. So I bought every kind of gluten-free flour I could find and did some experimenting. Lucky for me…beginners luck was on my side and I managed to get a soft cookie texture without butter. It was a Christmas miracle.
No gluten. No dairy. No eggs. No refined sugar. No soy. Still delish. Big thanks to the coconut and all its glory and many parts that helped make this cookie what it is today.
