Who doesn’t love a good cookie? But the sugar high and subsequent energy crash can really set you on a blood sugar roller coaster. Luckily, we can still enjoy a sweet treat by leveraging good fats, fibre and protein. These will slow the absorption of sugar, creating balanced mood and energy levels that will last the whole day. This gluten-free chocolate chip cookie is the perfect recipe to share with friends and family. Make good food work for you!

✨ Recipe ✨

Wet Ingredients:
1/3 cup unrefined coconut oil, softened
3/4 cup apple sauce
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 pinch of sea salt

Dry Ingredients:
1/2 cup rice flour
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cup quinoa flour
1/2 tsp baking soda

Dark chocolate chips, measured to your heart’s content ❀️
1/2 cup chopped pecans, walnuts, or hazelnuts
