Oh hey there. I've got some special cookies to share with you today. They are my Loaded Choc Chip & Cranberry Cookies or what I call my lunch box pleaser. I posted two recipes on Facebook to choose from the other day and it seems the cookie was the winner. It was up against a killer chocolate cake but to my disbelief the good old cookie won out! It seems you guys are in need of a healthy and yummy cookie recipe to fill the kid's lunch boxers up with. Well do I just have the recipe for you.
I wanted to create a healthy recipe that will be school lunch box friendly and will accommodate those with food allergies. Because hey everyone needs a good cookie in their life even if you have food allergies. So I set myself a goal of creating a recipe that would be gluten, dairy and egg free and also nut free so it can be used in your baking repertoire for school snacks. Oh and maybe mum and dad can sneakily snack on one or two of these as well. I know I did.
Now these cookies can be a bit like a choose your own adventure journey. Don't hesitate to swap and change the ingredients in these cookies to customize them to what you have in the pantry. Swap the seeds, dried fruit and choc chips to what you have in your cupboard and what suits your diet requirements. Just keep to the measurements. In the recipe I have added suggestions at the end to what changes you can make to the recipe. They may look like a rustic cookie but taste pretty nice. I treated hubby to a fresh batch of these cookies one afternoon as he got home from work. I think he appreciated the sentiment. I think J.D scoffed down three of these before I had a chance to pack them up into the freezer. YES they freezer really well too. I just make sure they are completely cooled and either package them up into a container or a freezer bag does the job as well. Pop them into the kids lunch boxes in the morning and they should be defrosted in time for morning tea.
Any tips on the toilet training front??
