Super Healthy Cookies cookbook review
Three words: Super Healthy Cookies. Ohhh... yea. I got my review copy of Hallie's latest book, Super Healthy Cookies, and it's right up my alley. All of the recipes look amazing, but since we have become grain-free I was thrilled to find 23 grain-free recipes - almost half of the book!
These recipes use all of my favorite ingredients: Coconut (flour, oil & sugar), nut butter, nut flour, and natural sweeteners like honey and dates. With such nutrient dense ingredients we can even eat a cookie with our breakfast smoothie, as Ginger is doing in these photos :-)
She refuses to wear a hat, but she adores sunglasses. So funny.
The top photo (and the cookie Ginger is eating) is called Spiced Apple Raisin Drops. Perfect for fall. We chilled ours on a cooling rack in the freezer before eating them for a crunchier effect. They were spectacular.
But I couldn't stop there, I had to make these Cookie Dough Squares too - you know how I love cookie dough. These were also soooo delish.
I can't wait to make more. Next on my list are the Pistachio Chocolate Twists, German Chocolate Cake Bars, Chocolate Covered Mint Patties, and Blueberry Bliss Cookies. In fact, I think I might make the Blueberry Bliss Cookies right now.
I love that I already have all of the ingredients for these recipes since they're right in line with my own cooking style. And if my recipes work for you, then you probably already have the ingredients too.
