Trying to reduce your sugar intake? Trying to be gluten free? Need something to satisfy your cookie cravings?
excellent pretty good decent recipe that meets the above criteria. Plus, they look like poop turds (and kinda taste like them), which will wow the children!
- 1/2 cup butter or vegetable shortening (I used Smart Balance)
- 1/2 cup date goo (I chopped up dates and simmered them with 1/4 cup water to make a “paste”)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 cup ground oat flour (yeah, I made my own. Just call me Pioneer Pippi.)
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 cup chocolate chips (or if you’re anti-sugar, put in some dried cranberries or raisins)
Cream butter and date paste. Add eggs. Mix together the remaining dry ingredients, then stir them into the creamed mixture. Plop and bake on a parchment-lined cookie sheet at 350 degrees F about 10 minutes.
Eat too many and you’ll be running to the bathroom. Because they are #fiberlicious!
P.S. You can swap out any kind of flour and oil. I am experimenting with almond flour and coconut oil. What the heck?
