Free and Friendly Foods Almond Cookie Candy

Almond Cookie Candy

I was ready to deem this a fail, until we realized it had great a taste and a unique application. My first thought was to make it into a fondant-like paste for Paleo treats. However, it seemed to break apart after too much use. We were able to make the “idea” of a gum paste flower, as seen in one of the pictures. If you’ve ever eaten a Tootsie Roll, that’s what these have the texture of. They’re like a chewy/toffee/candy/cookie. I know, amazing that something so strange could be so many things at once. It has so many talents 🙂 If I had to go back and do it again (which I will at some point), I’d leave them as dough balls. The dough was really good. Or, I’d make freezer fudge.

Sunflower Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is another installment of the Nut Butter Cookies Series. I was so inspired at the grocery store to see all of the little packs of nut and seed butters. It has allowed me to create small batches of cookies to test ideas without having to take the plunge and purchase jars and jars of butters.

This one was nice, but as the person with the worst allergies in the house, I wasn’t able to tolerate it. Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips unfortunately can sometimes pose a problem for corn allergic people. I have deemed this to be a corn free recipe, but for all of my corn free friends, use a safe chocolate that you know you can tolerate.

Truth be told, if I could have tolerated these, I probably would have gained 10 pounds 🙂

Here’s another quick and fun way to make a few cookies in a jiffy. I’m excited about this Nut Butter Cookie series, well, simply because I like series. So why not? To date, I think these have had the highest raves and reviews from the kids. I won’t keep you waiting any longer.

Free and Friendly Foods Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

Peanut Butter Jelly Thumbprint Cookies

After having success with the Peanut Butter Dough Ball Bites, I decided to go all in and try something else. That’s what it’s like with a severe corn allergy by the way. Little baby steps to see if something will make you sick.

As a kid, I LOVED peanut butter and jelly. But here’s the thing: I only ate them separately. If you were to make me a sandwich, I’d take it apart. Lick the jelly off the bread, then lick the peanut butter off the bread, then eat the bread, careful to eat the lower right corner last. Yes, I know I was a weird little kid. Point is, I love the idea of PB & J.

About 2 years ago, I discovered Inna Jam, and to my surprise, it didn’t make me sick. It has got to be the only jam I’ve found without extra junk and they source their fruit from a few safe farms that I can eat from. It’s worth the $10 + price tag, especially Peach. Oh the joy. I digress.

I normally don’t like baked cookies. Both Kid Two and I are much more dough people. However, these were great. I had first thought about just making more dough balls and using the jam as a dip, but I thought I’d go wild and try something else. The Papa loved these, and he’s like, wait, these are Paleo? Let me have another one. I can also testify to their goodness, especially after they’ve cooled completely and the next day too. And yes, I did eat 2 for breakfast.

Free and Friendly Foods Peanut Butter Dough Ball Bites

Peanut Butter Dough Ball Bites

No kidding, I just made theeee most yummy thing I’ve had in quite a while. I took a chance on the peanut butter since it’s organic and only one ingredient. I also took a chance on the cassava flour since I seem to be doing ok with some yucca root chips I get locally (although I’m starting to question them). That’s beside the point.

When I first thought about these, I knew I wanted them to be simple, like, realllly simple, so I could know if I was ok to eat it or not. So far, I ate two at breakfast time, and then had another two through the day. By the way, don’t try to eat more than two at a time, as I feel they’re very flavorful, but, I am a bit weird like that. I’m sure there are some people out there that could down the whole batch in one setting. So, let’s get this show on the road!
