Gluten Free Treats

This Christmas was very hard to stay gluten- & sugar-free!
There is sometimes a hard balance between serving the family delicious gluten-rich food & being loved as a mom versus knowing the sugar & gluten is not very good for my family. Ugh. Everything in moderation, they say, but my dad, a CT surgeon likes to come around Christmas time & point out the poison of gluten & sugar. 

These Molly’s cookies from Whole Foods are my favorite! They do have carbohydrates but no gluten. 

I do not think this is the same Molly, but I will be trying the below with Stevia to see how it works for my family. 

Healthy, Gluten-Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a soft spot for warm chocolate chip cookies so I am always experimenting ways to make them a bit healthier! These are made with almond flour and oats making them refined flour free and they are lower in sugar. I used coconut sugar which has a lower glycemic index in place of refined cane sugar. They definitely hit the spot!
  • 3/4 cup almond flour (can also use oat flour)
  • 3/4 cup quick oats
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking pan with parchment paper
  2. Mix together all ingredients in a bowl. Melting the coconut oil makes it easier to stir
  3. Spoon out about 9 small cookies onto the baking sheet
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes. They should be slightly browned on the edges and gooey in the middle
