(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 – 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 […]

Gluten-free Graham Crackers

Do you consider graham crackers to be cookies or crackers? Although they’re called ‘graham crackers’, many recipes so are loaded with oil, sugar or honey it’s tough to classify them as anything but a dessert-like treat. I grew up eating them every day as a snack when I came home from school (clearly I considered […]

Gluten-free and Vegan Rugelach

I’m not religious and haven’t paid much attention to Chanukah since I lived in Toronto with my family. When my grandmother moved into a seniors home last year, she sent me a few things she didn’t need anymore, including an old chanukiah.  I felt guilty having it in my home and not using it. And […]

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies were the first thing I baked on my own. I learned to create them at school in my seventh grade Family Studies class, which was essentially Home Economics with a more politically correct label. I made chocolate chip cookies obsessively throughout junior high and high school, but haven’t baked them much in […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Raisin Cookies

This is the easiest and yummiest cookie recipe you will ever make. Trust me. In its purest form, this cookie recipe consists of only peanut butter, sugar and an egg. My add-ins came at the suggestion of my best friend Jen, though you can include whatever you want. When I make these again, I’ll use […]

Cowboy Cookies

When you’re making gluten-free adaptations in the world of baking, you can’t always predict what you’ll get. But I had a gut feeling this recipe wouldn’t fail. I’d never heard of the term ‘cowboy cookie’ before reading this recipe (am I the only one?). They’re supposed to be thick, textured and hearty, relying more on […]

Gluten-free, Sugar-free and Vegan Gingerbread

While rummaging through my freezer last weekend I was excited to discover a chunk of this frozen gluten-free, sugar-free and vegan cookie dough. Don’t you love it when that happens? I originally baked these in December as a present for my mother in Toronto. I decorated them with little dreidels and menorahs made of royal […]

Mint Chocolate Cookies

Raw cookie doughs made with gluten-free flours usually taste bitter – you wouldn’t want to lick the mixing spoon or bowl clean, even if the finished product tastes sweet and delicious. I knew these cookies would turn out yummy as soon as I sampled the raw, chocolately dough and it was utterly amazing. I haven’t […]
