RECIPE OF THE WEEK
OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
*** Mary Ann shares this time a cookie recipe that works for her family and two sons who have food allergies.***
Mary Ann Colegrove, Registered Dietitian shares:
1 cup flour (can try mix of white and whole wheat)
1 cup Shortening (I often use 1/2 cup Olivio spread for no trans fat and the rest butter also with no trans fat but high saturated fat. I have also used one cup of Olivio before) ( Or you can add 1 cup blenderized garbanzo beans and less shortening)
¾ brown sugar (can use less. I think ½ cup is enough)
3 Tbsp water
1 tsp. Vanilla
½ tsp salt
3 cups oatmeal ( I added another ½ cup when I added the beans that were blenderized)
½ cup to ½ package of chocolate chips or raisins
In large bowl measure first 7 ingred. (or do wet ingredients in blender with pureed chickpeas then transfer to mixing bowl)
With mixer at low speed, beat ingredients until well blended. With spoon stir in oatmeal and choc. Chips or raisins.
In Pre heated oven bake at 375 degree.
Bake 12 min.
Check out a new water drink company that was founded by Kara Goldin, a mother of four who cares about providing healthy beverages to families....she talks more below about Hint..
The idea behind Hint is simple: pure water, nature's original refreshment, accented with a hint of natural flavor.
No sugar, no artificial sweeteners: Hint is a refreshing alternative to sodas, juice and other sweetened drinks and it tastes great.
Sound good? It tastes even better.
We thank you for trying Hint, hope that you and your family enjoy it, and wish you excellent health.
Hint is available in many specialty markets and is also sold in fine spas and hotels. If Hint is not yet available in your favorite store, please ask for it.
Hint is adding new stores, spas and hotels every week and are also interested in school and corporate lunch programs.
