Crispy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (gluten free, vegan, sugar-free)
Posted Jul 18 2010 5:59pm
Oh my, these are so good! I had a cookie craving, and these satisfy like no other cookie I've baked thus far in my gluten-free career. Huzzah!
But, my dear friends, here's the thing: they aren't low in fat, low in calories, low carb, or have any other "beneficial" categorization. They contain some maple syrup, and therefore, aren't really all that anti-Candida diet-friendly. And to really top it off, I used chocolate chips made with a little evaporated cane juice. I know, I know, not generally my style.
Oh, but what the hell. I threw care to the wind, made them, and relished in them, happily licking dough off the beaters and eating one warm and one cooled and then another one later. Then I went on a long walk, in an attempt to undo some of the caloric catastrophe. So much for losing a few pounds before all those August weddings I'm attending. Thankfully, I only baked half the batch and froze the remainder of the dough, so I wouldn't be tempted to eat them all at a far-too-rapid pace (because I would).
