If you’re in the mood for a healthier snacking recipe, then today, you are in the right place.
When I was a kid, my favourite lunch box find was a chocolate chip cookie. It was unimaginable to me, that someone (child or otherwise) could possibly prefer something with raisins *insert scrunchy face here*. Even today (knowing fully well that some people actually do), I find the concept difficult to wrap my head around… So it’s ironic that I would find myself partnered with someone who was, and still is, one of those raisin lovers.
As much as I’m all about breaking down barriers, and ditching eggs and dairy, I also keep a watchful eye on desserts of the past. Can the two be combined? I believe they can… I collect old cook books (and am lucky enough to have a couple that are 70+ years old), and look to the recipes of our amazing grandmother’s and great-grandmother’s for inspiration.
So Dave asked me if I would make him some sort of snack for pre-workouts and to refuel him through his day at work (sometimes his job alone is a workout). He was sure to specify, that he’d like for it to be healthy, have no added sugar, and (of course) taste like a cookie… Uh-Ya… No problem :-/
I have a confession to make. This may be a little shocking, so prepare yourself… Here it goes… This week, I wasn’t interested in sweets or cookies or even chocolate!… I know… I can hardly believe it myself… So what does a compulsive baker do in times like these????
