IN My Kitchen: Heather's Allergy-Friendly Cookies
My daughter is currently doing a school project for which she is trying to create an allergy-friendly recipe collection that would suit her brother. She is finding recipes online, mostly, then altering them to use ingredients that are dairy, nut and egg free and that we have in the cupboard already.
Here is one of her recipes and a picture of the cookies. This one was already allergy-friendly but we didn’t have any non-dairy milk available so she found a substitute.
Vegan Sun Butter Cookies:
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of Sunbutter
1/4 cup of water
1 tsp of vegan margarine
2/3 of a cup of all purpose flour
1 tsp of baking soda
Mix one cup of brown sugar with one cup of Sunbutter (crunchy or smooth, but must be sugar free) and whisk until combined. Then add 1/4 of a cup of water and one teaspoon of margarine and whisk until combined. Next add 2/3 of a cup of all purpose flour and one teaspoon of baking soda. Stir until combined. Form into balls and flatten slightly with a fork then bake at 350 - 375 F. for 20-25 minutes, or until expanded and flattened. Note: cookies will come out chewy when hot, but will cool down to be crunchy.
