The Best Allergy-Friendly Cookies

thrive cookie completeDon't you love those cookies that ooze with delectable chocolate? Oh, what a glorious sensation of a warm cookie melting in your mouth!!! If you are a fan of delicious, chocolate cookies, you will absolutely fall in love with this recipe. Oh, my - it is addictive - I couldn't stop eating them!!!

Our daughter has had a lot of problems with symptoms related to Celiac and IBS. She has been so frustrated that we haven't been able to find a recipe that makes a cookie that is both soft and fluffy.  For the last year, every time I make cookies for her - they come out really weird - either dry and crumbly or oily and gooey . We found this really good gluten-free flour that actually makes great-tasting cookies. Of course, I am not using eggs or dairy. So not using these ingredients usually messes up most recipes. Elisabeth is so sweet; she still eats it even though most kids would complain.

Well, the other day, our oldest daughter, Elisabeth, found this new recipe and cooked a batch of these cookies. It was like magic!!! - Waa-Laa   It actually tasted like a normal cookie!!! I couldn't believe it. She actually tweaked the recipe where she could eat it since she is trying not to eat much sugar. The extra carbs cause other unnecessary problems in her body - but that is for another post. Elisabeth actually substituted raw honey instead of coconut sugar. As you can see, she tops this amazing cookie with some vegan chocolate icing and coconut flakes.

What I love about the new Thrive flour is that it isn't grainy like so many of the other gluten-free flours. It doesn't contain any sugars and no yeast. 

Here are the ingredients:  Brown Rice Flour, Rice Starch, Potatoe Starch, Xantham Gum, Locust Bean Gum

So many of the gluten-free flours include a little bit of some form of sugar and this doesn't work for those who have an overgrowth of Candida. 

 

Thrive flour & Straw 2

 

For all of you preppers - this is the perfect flour. This flour will last unopened for 5 years. Thrive sells great-tasting products including freeze-dried chicken and freeze-dried fruit. We love their strawberries; they are great in homemade granola. This is the first company I have found that sells dried strawberries without sugar or preservatives.

Most of their products are certified gluten-free since one of their top executives has a child that is sensitive to gluten. They actually have a kitchen within their facilities that is a dedicated to processing only gluten-free products

Here is the recipe my daughter used to make these amazing cookies. Plus, she added her own version of chocolate icing. They are so delicious!!! It's hard to stop eating them!!! Enjoy!

  3. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us at Simply Natural Saturdays! Having worked around kids, I know how important it is to be careful with what you make to ensure all the kids (no matter what their allergies) can eat them!
