Chocolate Chip Cookies (Vegan, Gluten-Free)


It’s hard to resist a chocolate chip cookie…so don’t!

Just make sure it’s free of junky ingredients and includes easy-to-digest, natural and wholesome alternatives.

These cookies make an allergy-safe school snack, healthy treat for work or a delicious dessert, post-meal.











I’m on a millet kick this week. It’s one of the cheapest grain-like seeds on the market. It provides minerals like magnesium (great for keeping you calm) B vitamins (to keep you happy), fibre (to keep your gut happy) and other antioxidants (for good health overall)

I used millet flakes in this recipe, which you can find at most health food stores.

Now, the most important ingredient in this recipe is CHOCOLATE. I used a combo of half vegan chocolate chips and cacao nibs. Cacao nibs are nature’s chocolate providing a booster of antioxidants, minerals and fibre.

    Can the millet flakes and rice flour be substituted with something else?
