These cookies are simply the best. We feature them in our Vegan All American Cooking Class, but since we haven’t offered this class in awhile, I felt that it was unethical for me to keep this recipe to myself. While I am not personally gluten free or vegan, I truly believe these cookies are better than any traditional version I have had. They are crispy on the edges but perfectly chewy in the middle. Being allergen friendly is just an added bonus! Enjoy!
This recipe is not my creation but it is one that I make often for my personal chef clients. They abosolutely love it so I thought it would be a great one to share. It’s warm and comforting, yet also nutritious and makes good use of seasonal winter produce. Enjoy!

It felt great to breath the fresh air, feel the burn in my legs and get my blood pumping. Read More
