Sunbutter and Jelly Thumbprint Cookies

To illustrate the wonder and delight of these cookies, I’ll recount the exchange I had with my husband after I baked them. Husband: (with his mouthful of cookie) These are really good. Me: Do they taste like peanut butter and jelly? Husband: (looking concerned) Yes. Why? Aren’t these peanut butter and jelly? Me: Yes, there’s […]

Sunflower Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s hard to please everyone these days with allergen-friendly baking. If you can’t have gluten, dairy, eggs, soy or nuts, creating delicious treats is certainly not impossible, but a heck of a lot more difficult. While any food has the potential to cause an allergic reaction, I haven’t come across many people with sunflower or […]

Soft Molasses Ginger Cookies

I have a nerdy husband. That means I’m often left alone for long stretches of time while he plays Dungeons and Dragons in a dark basement. Yes, I’m married to an adult man who pretends to be an ogre or a wizard in his spare time. Can anyone out there relate? One Saturday night a […]

Soft Pumpkin Cookies

There’s a bakery in Seattle’s Pike Place Market that bakes monstrous, soft pumpkin cookies. Whenever I visited, I always made a beeline for them. I haven’t had one in years, but when my husband accidentally bought a can of pureed pumpkin pie mix, those cookies instantly popped into my brain. And suddenly I couldn’t stop […]

I’ll admit I was not crazy about these cookies at first. I don’t like protein powders and though I used one that was mild and neutral, the flavour still seemed a bit overwhelming. Slowly but surely, I grew to appreciate these little dense, satisfying nuggets with their delightful pops of chocolatey sweetness. They make the […]

Gluten-Free, Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Years ago, in my mother’s kitchen, I made batch after batch of chocolate chip cookies. Crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside, dotted with plump chocolate chips – they were my favourite thing to bake. There’s no doubt those cookies were delicious. They were also laden with white flour, refined sugar, gobs of butter […]

Chocolate Quinoa Cookies

I’ve written about the health benefits of quinoa before, like its high content of vitamins, minerals and protein. Quinoa has proven to be an extremely versatile grain in my kitchen, and now I can happily extend its use to cookies! These chocolatey quinoa cookies were absolutely delicious and virtually guilt-free. I didn’t eat them for […]

(Mostly) Raw Cookie Dough Bites

These aren’t entirely raw because I have no idea where to find raw oats and I prefer the taste of maple syrup to agave nectar. However, I didn’t bake these in the oven – so they are raw enough to suit my standards! I’m sure you’re wondering if these truly taste like cookie dough? Yes, […]

Raw Cacao Walnut Cookies

You may have heard about the health benefits of chocolate ā€“ like it has antioxidant power and positive effects on cholesterol and blood pressure. But don’t go wolfing a Snickers just yet – because the more processed and cooked a chocolate item is, the less likely it is to bring you healthy goodness. While dark […]
