I am always down for a good cookie. Since I always have peanut butter on hand and it seems to make a good cookie base, I decided to create a new peanut butter cookie recipe. Instead of being flourless like some of my other cookies, I used a new gluten-free flour that I recently bought. I don't love it on its own because it does have a unique flavor BUT with the maple syrup, peanut butter and chocolate chips in this recipe, it is absolutely perfect! I initially bought the flour because it was a little healthier than some other gluten-free flour mixes - it is made out of beans so it has more fiber and protein than most other mixes, less calories and less carbs. It also doesn't taste grainy like I have found other mixes to be. These cookies are AMAZING. You can't tell they are gluten-free cookies (made out of beans nonetheless) AND they are super pillowy and soft. They are easy to whip up and I have already made them several times. If you want to try out a new healthy cookie recipe - you need to give this one a whirl!

I believe everyone should eat balanced and not cut food groups if you don't medically need to. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Unfortunately, I have to avoid gluten and also limit myself with dairy, so my goal is to provide healthy, gluten-free/dairy-free recipes so EVERYONE can enjoy all foods, even if you do have to cut out certain food groups. My recipes are encouraged for everyone to eat, not just for those with sensitivities/allergies! Most of my recipes can be easily converted by using real dairy and whole-wheat in place of my allergy-free substitutes.
