|Not the greatest pic, but I don’t have time to whip out my nice camera and take glorious photos of food.
Not at this stage in my life, anyway!
I’ve been on a quest to make cookies with less refined ingredients with additional power ingredients (like chia seeds) to make them somewhat healthier with a boost of nutrients…but hey, it’s a cookie! It’s supposed to be a treat 🙂
Here’s a recipe I’ve been tinkering with and I have a couple of good versions. This one creates a flat cookie that’s SUPER chewy. I actually haven’t tasted it yet (but neighbors and hubby loved them!), since I’ve doing a trial version of the Whole30 diet (no sugar, grains, dairy, etc.) but I’m probably only going to do a Whole15…HA! I’m still nursing, and I’d feel much better about eating less meat and overall just following my intuition when it comes to what foods I feel my body needs. Which, yes, includes a little bit of everything banned by the Whole30 diet.
