Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies {Recipe}

Against All Grain is one of my new favorite blogs and new favorite cookbooks! She has some of the best gluten-free and paleo recipes out there. Seriously everything she posts looks appetizing, which isn’t always the case when you remove the gluten. Not only does she have gluten-free recipes but she has recipes that work for the Special Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), something that I tried to go on at one point. I’ve had Ulcerative Colitis for 20 years (wow, that makes me feel old), I was diagnosed at age 8 so I’ve pretty much had it my entire life. I’ve been in and out of remission, on and off medicine, it’s just an on-going thing. The last time I had to go back on meds I tried to start the SCD and failed miserably. You pretty much can’t eat anything. No sugar {except honey}, no grains, no starches and limited dairy. Sounds like a baker’s nightmare to me. That was definitely the hardest part for me, I love baked goods. I like to make them, like to eat them, like to share, and all the recipes I was finding that worked for the diet tasted horrible. Like really not good. Now I try out recipes here and there, but I don’t stick to a strict diet by any means. I am happy to say that this recipe is probably THE best grain-free cookie recipe I have ever tried. I will go so far as to say it’s just as good as real thing. I guess that’s why they are called, “Real Deal Chocolate Chip Cookies.” Finding recipes like this makes that I really can stick to a diet like this {though chocolate is actually a no-no on the SCD}, but then I realize that these are also probably the most expensive cookies I have ever made…so the diet may need to wait until we’ve accomplished a few more of our financial goals 😉

Frosted Valentine’s Day Cookies {Recipe}

Happy Valentine’s Day! Colin and I will be spending it making dinner, playing with Claire, having some wine, and maybe we’ll search through Netflix for a movie….that pretty much describes every night of our lives. I did decide to make some festive cookies using my tried and true sugar cookie recipe that I make for every holiday. In case you missed it I’ve blogged about it here and here already.

Oatmeal Scotchies Recipe

The last two half marathons I’ve completed were fueled by Oatmeal Scotchies. They are the perfect cookie to have before a race, after a race, before a training run, for breakfast, well, really they are perfect anytime. 🙂 If you have never heard of these, then you are missing out big time and need to bake up this recipe now. These cookies have the perfect combination of sweet and spicy {spicy as in cinnamon & nutmeg}. I know, I said I would post healthy recipes…. those are coming soon.
