Cookies from Babycakes

I just made the most amazing chocolate chip cookies from the Babycakes cookbook. The entire reason that I bought this book is because Alicia Silverstone recommended this cookbook in her book The Kind Diet. She said that you had to try these cookies and she was right! They are crips on the outside and soft and chewy in the center.

When I first started making them I wasn’t sure how they would turn out. I had to measure out a cup of coconut oil, a real pain so they better be yummy, then I had to melt it. I added the coconut oil to some applesauce, vanilla, salt, and sugar. Then I added the dry ingredients and the chocolate chips. I dropped them onto a baking sheet and baked for 15 minutes.

I was worried about how these would turn out because when I tasted the batter it was kind of gross and grainy. But when they came out of the oven they were delicious! I ate four of them. I couldn’t stop myself! Baby J and B both liked them as well. I plan on making these again.

Brownies from Babycakes

My husband recently got me the cookbook Babycakes. It is a cookbook that Alicia Silverstone recommend in her book The Kind Diet. I made the gingerbread yesterday and I was not impressed. But today I made the brownies and shut the front door are they good! The are jaw-dropping, plate-licking good. They are rich and fluffy and everything I want in a brownie. You have to try this! I had no idea that gluten free could be so delicious.
