I know I know, another flipping cooking recipe from The Healthy Nut. I am sorry but I am obsessed with baking. This recipe is not an All in the Balance, Inc original so I can’t take any credit. This is a recipe I made from on of my new cookbooks. Eaternity. The cookbook is all about easy vegan recipes. I have said this many times but I want to say it again because I think it is uber important. I am not a Vegan, Vegetarian, or Carnivore eater. I HATE these labels. I eat what taste good to me and focus on what my body thrives on. I of course can not eat anything with any gluten so if I had to have a label it would be that. I can’t stand that one either. It still blows my mind how people are so misguided with the whole eating gluten free thing (BUT that is a whole different blog post for a different time). Here is the recipe for these yummy awesome cookies. You will love them.
