Gluten free vegan cookies

Gluten free vegan cookies

3 large, ripe bananas, pureed
1 tsp. vanilla extract
¼ cup warm coconut, olive or canola oil
2 cups rolled gluten free oats
2/3 cup almond meal
1/3 cup coconut, shredded and unsweetened
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. fine grain sea salt
1 tsp. baking powder
6 to 7 oz. chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and put the racks on the top third. Mix the bananas, coconut, olive or canola oil, and vanilla extract in a bowl. Combine all the dry ingredients, except the chocolate chips, in a separate bowl. Put together the contents of the two bowls, and stir until obtaining a homogeneous mixture. Add the chocolate chips to the dough. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and start dropping blobs of approximately 2 tsp. of dough, leaving 1 inch between them. These vegan bakery cookies need to be baked for 12 to 15 minutes.

    hey there – love the blog! PLEASE keep up the great work. and best of luck on your weight loss journeys.

    SO my comments and thoughts about gluten free. I am so happy to see so many grocery stores adopting gluten free items into their offerings, and more and more I see gluten free dining options on menus.

    But exactly HOW does gluten free dieting affect weight loss? Does anyone know?

    My family and I love watching ABC’s Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition on Monday’s at 10, and I read that the trainer Chris Powell has adopted a gluten free lifestyle. (PS love him and the show – such a motivator each week) – He looks amaizing but I feel like this is such a new trend. Does it speed up the weight loss process?

    Mark-

    Being truly gluten free and just dropping carbs from your diet are two completely different things. I have Celiac’s disease and from my perspective there is no reason to go gluten free if you don’t have to. We can’t eat tons of things that you might not even know has gluten in it, like soy sauce, fruit roll ups, anything that has modified food starch in it, or drink beer!

    It’s better just to choose whole grains such as brown rice, quinoa, etc. Also, many GF products are not as healthy as you might think–many make up for the lack of flavor of brown rice flour etc with tons of sugars and fats.

    So my advice to you would be to either stick with small servings of healthy whole grains, or kick carbs (Incl potatoes!) altogether. I wouldn’t recommend replacing anything with GF products, especially because the GF lifestyle tends to cost 250% more on average.

    I hope this helps!

    Actually, it’s not just Celiac’s disease that has to avoid gluten. Hashimotos autoimmune disease victims do too. I have Hashimotos, but not Celiacs, however, after lots of research, removing gluten from the diet helps lower the antibodies attacking the thyroid. Now, I’m still new to this, but after only 3 weeks, I’ve managed to lose almost 15lbs, and for someone who hasn’t lost a pound in over 3 years, that is amazing!
