It’s been a long time since I have posted but it’s been a very busy spring and summer, filled with lots of fun activities, birthday parties each month, vacation, play dates etc. Now, the kids are back to school 😦 and Benny and I are trying to find our own little routine again.
I’ve been browsing through lots of new cookbooks and have picked out a ton of new recipes that I’d like to try. My goal is to post a new recipe each day with my personal reviews as well as the recipe or the link to the recipe. Similar to the movie, Julie and Julia, I”d love it if you all followed along and shared your comments.
Let’s start today with a sweet treat… Vegan Chocolate Coconut Cookies. I made them gluten free so everyone could eat them here at our house. To make them gluten free, I substituted the all-purpose flour with 1 cup oat flour and 1/2 cup almond flour. I’ve found that it takes a little more “gluten free flour” to make it hold up as well as the gluten version.
My review: I thought it was a delicious cookie. In my opinion, I wanted it to be a bit more on the healthy side, so I reduced the sugar by 1/2 and still thought they tasted great. They were soft and fudgy, similar to a brownie. Everyone enjoyed them here, even Benny. We are all chocolate and coconut lovers in this house! This is a great option for those that can’t eat eggs and it is super easy and simple to make, just a few simple ingredients. My son Lucas rolled them all out for me while I moved onto washing the dishes.
