If You Give A Mouse A Cookie…

If You Give A Mouse A Cookie

He’ll ask for a glass of milk.

If you give a sweets-fiend-blogger a cookie…

She’ll probably ask what’s in it and then make her own… After she eats the cookie you presented her; because that would just be rude. And a sad waste of a cookie. 😉

Green Speckled Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies adapted from Katie’s recipes here and here

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 chocolate chips
  • 2 cups gluten free flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 10 drops(ish) liquid Stevia (or alternative sweetener equaling about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp Spirulina powder (optional for the green speckles)

Directions:

Set the Spriulina powder aside. Mix the dry ingredients together. Mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Add the dry to the wet and stir in chocolate chips. Sprinkle Spriulina onto the cookie dough and briefly stir- creating swirls (??).

Compile your unbaked cookies on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

Eat and enjoy.

Even if they look like they’re moldy, not green swirled or speckled. They’re still good. 🙂

Would you eat the cookie or ask what’s in it?

Are you a picky eater? I don’t consider myself picky at all, just selective. 😉
