One Awesome Health Cookie Recipe

Want to try a yummy gluten free, dairy free, sugar free cookie? Yes? Well great! Today I wanted to share a delicious recipe for Health Cookies. Yes, I did say health! Years ago a bakery was going out of business in a local natural foods store. My Mom asked for the recipe for the Health Cookies. The recipe was kindly written down and handed to her. What a treasure! My brother, sister, and I loved those cookies and she bought those for us as often as she could. They were a wonderful treat.

I recently pulled them out of my recipe file and made a batch. They were just as good as I remembered. These cookies are dairy free and sugar free. For those of you who can’t have gluten products simply change the wheat flour into a gluten free flour of your choice and you are ready to go. As far as I understand bakeries measure their ingredients by weight, not measuring cups and spoons. So pull out your kitchen scale and have a yummy healthy treat!

From Jennifer Allen

Looks good! One minor correction- barley has gluten in it.
