Hope everyone is enjoying their summer break and surviving these heat waves. Wow, I thought Florida was hot until I watch the Weather channel. At least we can go jump in the water!

Well, to put the REST of you in a good mood, I am sharing with you a great cookie recipe from Enjoy Life Foods. We carry many of their products, as well as some ingredients for these Allergy Free Cookies. This recipe is free of all the top allergens - Dairy, Eggs, Gluten, Wheat, Soy, Peanuts and Tree Nuts…as well as being pretty healthy. Of course, you don’t need to tell your kids THAT part though..

Make up a batch of these…add more ingredients that are safe for your household…and STAY COOL!

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.

Where do I find Gluten Free Cookies that Taste Good?

Right here I say! Here is another video product demonstration…I enjoy doing these for some strange reason…maybe I feel like someone is listening to me, or maybe I like talking more than writing! Biscottea has several wonderful cookies that we carry: Chai Tea Shortbread, Blueberry Tea Shortbread, Blueberry Tea Shortbread Grab and Go (their small 2 cookie pkg.), Chai Tea Shortbread Grab and Go, Earl Grey Tea Shortbread and the small package version, Earl Grey Shortbread Grab and Go. These cookies are Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Yeast Free and Kosher. The only one of these gluten free cookies that has egg and yeast is the Biscottea Chai Tea Shortbread Cookie, which is the cookie that I talk about below. I know I sell this stuff, but I have to say, honestly, I really like them. They are “light” tasting and perfect for an after dinner light dessert. And, you don’t have to mix, stir or bake! Take a peek for yourself….
