A friend of mine, Hilary, recently introduced me to some of the most delicious vegan AND gluten free cookies I’ve ever eaten. Most gluten free cookies that I have tried have been tasteless with little regard for flavor, texture, and quality.
Hilary brought me some of her Chewybaccas for the holidays and I was swooning for more before I could even finish the first one!! They are actually some of the best cookies I’ve ever had. Since I rarely eat sweets or desserts…. these cookies blew me out of the water.
The hardest part is just getting all the ingredients but they are worth it.
Take the time to make this recipe and you’ll impress your vegan or gluten free friends…or any of your friends and family for that matter.
