As I mentioned in my last blog, I am looking for some tasty sugar and wheat free treats.
Well, I think that these No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies might fit the bill.
They are moister than the oatmeal raisin bars and if you don't mind dark chocolate the sweetness is okay. Of course, if you like peanut butter and chocolate, they are a hit!!
i still have to try them out on the family. I will keep you posted.
I have had a number of people ask if I do any gluten free baking.
I do but the selection is not huge.
I have also recently had some friends whose husbands have been diagnosed with diabetes and one of them has a wheat sensitivity.
So, I went on the hunt for some recipes that would be helpful for my friends.
I discovered a blog called Chocolate Covered Katie. Yes, there are a lot of recipes that included chocolate. But most of them are wheat free and sugar free.
I saw one for oatmeal raisin cookie Larabars. I had the ingredients in stock so, okay let's try them.
Well, they are very easy to make. Although they only make 4 bars. If you made balls you could get more servings.
They were okay, if you are used to sugar free they would probably be great.
Roy thinks I should substitute another nut for the walnuts, they make the bars a bit bitter.
My mother was not impressed at all. I did not mention that they were sugar free before I offered a bit to her.
There are few other versions of the bar that include chocolate. I will be trying them soon and will let tyou know how they fair.
My brother loves sugar cookies, well he loves cookies period!!!
But he says these are his favourite.
He ordered a bunch in white and blue to take to work.
I texted him the next day to ask if they had made it to work or if he had eaten them all.
He replied yes they made it to work and that they were a big hit.
These ginger snaps are sometimes mistaken for molasses cookies because of their rich flavour.
I also get commments on how nice and chewy they are for a ginger snap.
