Cinnamon Crunch “Faux” Oatmeal Cookies from Enjoy Life      

ingredients:

½ C warm water

1T ground flax or ground chia

¼ C sunflower, safflower, or grapeseed Oil

½ C light agave syrup

1 t molasses

1 t gluten-free vanilla extract

1 bag Enjoy Life Cinnamon Crunch Granola

1/3 C + 1T brown rice flour

¼ C tapioca flour

¾ t xanthan gum

1 t baking powder

¼ t salt

directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 F or 325 F for a convection oven.

2. Combine water and flax seed, and allow to sit for five minutes.

3. In the bowl of a food processor or a stand-up mixer, combine all the wet ingredients, including the water (after 5 minutes). Mix for a few minutes.

4. In a separate bowl, combine the flours, granola, and the rest of the dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients all at once to the wet ingredients.

5. Mix until combined, less than 30 seconds. As the dough sits, it will absorb all of the liquid.

6. With a 1 oz ice cream scoop, scoop cookie dough onto parchment-lined baking sheet.

7. Bake in oven for 10 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.

8. Eat right away or store in an airtight container for up to three days. Dough can also be frozen for up to a month.

It’s cold out…and you know that means..Chocolate!

I guess this sounds like a broken record…cold weather doesn’t REALLY mean chocolate. But doesn’t a little chocolate dessert seem to make the conditions outside a little more bearable? On this vein, we will move forward and introduce you to another yummy dish from my friends at Chebe Bread. This recipe is called “Blondie”. Now, I have been called this as well…and only my hairdresser knows if that is accurate! Enjoy this blondie and stay warm!

Blondie Bar Dessert Recipe

Blondie Bar Dessert Recipe

                   

Ingredients
1 Package Chebe Mix (add 1/2 tsp. Cream of Tartar and 1 tsp. Baking Soda to Chebe Original Bread Mix)
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter (or non-dairy alternative), softened
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 large eggs ( or use egg replacer)
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cup chocolate chunks, divided

 

Directions
Preheat oven to 350o F. Grease a 9 by 13 baking pan.                                                                            

Add brown sugar to softened butter and mix until combined. Mix in the eggs and vanilla extract until combined. Add 1 package of Chebe All-Purpose Bread Mix and mix on low until just incorporated. Fold in 1 1/4 cups chocolate chunks and transfer the mixture to the prepared pan. Sprinkle the remaining 3/4 cups of chocolate chunks evenly on top of the mixture and press lightly with wax paper to set into the dough. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove to a wire rack and let cool completely. Cut into 2-inch squares.  Makes 24 bars.

If you are in the mood for cookies: Mix all of the chocolate chunks into the dough and bake on a cookie sheet for 20-22 minutes at 350o. Makes 2 dozen cookies. Be creative and modify the recipe by adding your favorite chopped nuts, toffee bits, etc. in place of the chocolate – just keep the quantity to about  2 cups.
