Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Bacon Cookies-Amy's Treat Corner
In this month's edition of Amy's Treat Corner, Amy shows you how to make Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Bacon Cookies.
But you might be asking yourself:
"Wait, does that mean chocolate chip cookies are healthy as long as they're gluten-free?"
Definitely not. They're less unhealthy, but don't kid yourself into thinking that any chocolate chip cookie, even this one, is positively contributing to your health with nutrients.
That being said, there is more to health than food and there's more to life than health, like sharing special occasions with your family and friends. Having a special occasion with your family and friends once or twice a month won't derail your progress if you're eating a nutrient dense real whole food diet the rest of the time. But that might lead to another question.
"Why make the cookies gluten-free if you're going to just be having a special occasion?"
You're welcome to make your cookies however you'd like. But there are a lot people who feel like crap after eating gluten who still want to enjoy themselves. In that case a gluten-free chocolate chip cookie is a way to celebrate a special occasion without feeling like crap for the next couple of days.
Enjoy this delicious recipe with someone special this Valentine's Day, and then get back on track with healthy eating the next day.
