sugar, oh, honey honey. you are my candy girl, and you got me wanting you.

For all of our readers out there that have gluten, yeast, wheat, sugar and/or dairy intolerances, this one is for you. One subscriber sent us a recipe for “chocolate chip walnut cookies” that weren’t actually chocolate chips at all:) They are incredible for anyone who knows what a real chocolate chip cookie once tasted like, but are no longer blessed with the ability to eat them.

Brown Rice Carob Chip Cookies with Banana

(look like real chocolate chip cookies right?)

INGREDIENTS:

1 mashed banana
3/4 cup brown rice syrup
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 cups of brown rice flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups of carob chips
3/4 cup of ground walnuts

Combine the banana, brown rice syrup and vegetable oil in a separate bowl. Combine flour, salt, baking powder and soda in another. Slowly combine bowls together and then add chips and walnuts. If the mixture is too dry, add some melted margarine and/or water.
Drop spoonfuls on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 10-12 minutes at 325 degrees or until golden brown.
Makes 50 cookies.

The outcome is scrumptious for those with allergies and intolerances, and actually “pretty good” for those without. So give it a whirl on these cold days where we need some extra cushion on our bodies for more efficient hibernation.

  1. Thanks Jenny! These look yummy. Since I’ve changed my diet I’ve come to realize how yummy things that aren’t made with gluten or dairy can be, alot of times even more so! And just a little tidbit on High Fructose Corn Syrup and sugar…studies are starting to show that these are WORSE for your health than fat, as long as you are using healthy fats. The new school of thought is that sugar is responsible for inflammation and that inflammation is the starting point of just about every disease known. I stopped using it years ago and I always check ingredients for varying forms of it. Best sweetners are maple syrup (100%), agave nectar and honey (both in raw form so the nutrients are still present). I’ll let you know how I make out with the cookies! Love you…Auntie Carrie
