You Won’t Believe it’s Gluten Free – Chocolate Chip Cookies

Dr. Nate taught Anatomy and Physiology part-time at Front Range Community College for a little over four years.  To say that Dr. Nate loved teaching at the community college, is an understatement.  Teaching at the community college brought much happiness, contentment, and peace into our lives.   In addition to teaching part-time, Dr. Nate also maintained and built a chiropractic wellness office focused on educating our clientele correct principles to enhance their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.  We poured years of sweat and blood into that business – and we loved it as if it was a child.

But life started to get crazy and it is hard to balance multiple passions.  Sometimes the universe forces you to simplify.  After much thought and consideration, we decided to pack up our little family and business and move to Utah to attend PhD school.  Which equates to huge changes in our lives.

The last day Dr. Nate taught at Front Range Community College, our family had to celebrate, which always equates to cookies at our house.  Simple to make, gluten-free, vegan, and delicious – these cookies are perfect for any occasion.

Let’s get cooking!

Start by creating your very own chia seed egg replacement.  Set it aside.

Start with one cup of sucanat and one teaspoon of baking soda.  Traditionally, you would mix this in a bowl… but with these cookies I am all about breaking the rules.

I mix that baking soda right on in before the sucanat ever leaves that cup.

 Whip out your beaters, kitchen aid, or wooden spoon and start combining your sucanat mixture and almond butter.

Add one chia seed egg replacement


Get ready to add the chocolate chips.  You know I love these bad boys.
