C is for cookie

After much practicing and fussing around to make up my own GF flour mix, the cookies from the Babycakes cookbook have finally turned out well. They are delicious - crunchy on the outside, chewy in the centre. They are sugar free, gluten free and vegan. Though you wouldn't know it. AND they contain apple sauce, flaxseeds and coconut oil. All really super good for you foods.

Which in my book means you can eat more of 'em, yes?


  1. I must say I am enjoying reading your blog. I did the Gluten free thing for a couple fo my kids there for a while an understand the mucking around with trying to find a flour substitute. I thought I would forward this onto you as I found I could use it cup for cup in nearly all of my baking/cooking recipes.

    All purpose Gluten Free Flour
    This can be used cup for cup in most baking recipes
    3 cups brown rice flour (fine ground)
    1 cup potato starch
    1/2 cup tapioca flour or 1/4 cup corn flour
    1 1/4 teaspoons guar gum or xanthan gum

    Sift ingredients together, combining thoroughly. Use in place of flour in cakes and other baked goods.
    Store in airtight container or ziploc bag in refrigerator.

    hope this helps

  7. Hi I just stumbled onto your blog today and have been reading back! I don't suppose you have the recipe for these that you could forward to me? The hubby has recently gone gluten free and we've both gone sugar free but would love something "nice" to still snack on and look on as a treat!

    Anyway, you have a new follower! And if you'd like to share the recipe with me, I'd be very appreciative! My email is
