“All you need is love… but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”
– Charles M. Schulz
If you read our blog last week, you’ll remember that we discussed soy allergy and sensitivity. You’ll also remember that we promised you a delicious soy-free recipe to follow it up! Well, here it is. One of our therapists, Tori, has a 5 year old nephew, Dylan, who is allergic to soy. One of his favorite things to eat is a chocolate chip cookie and unfortunately, chocolate typically contains soy, so the little guy usually has to decline when offered one of these tasty treats. That was always the case until his mom found a bag of soy-free chocolate chips. Needless to say, Dylan’s little life is complete now that he can have chocolate chip cookies again! These particular chocolate chips are also dairy free and not cross-contaminated with nuts, so they are also safe if you have a nut or dairy allergy.
Soy-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies:
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups Enjoy Life chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Stir together flour, soda and salt. Set aside.
Whisk together both types of sugar, oil, egg and vanilla. Add flour mixture to oil mixture and stir just until blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
Scoop up dough and shape into tight rounds of about 1 inch (you could can use a tablespoon to keep them evenly shaped). Space them about 2 inches apart on two ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool for a few minutes on cookie sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling. Then eat them… A lot of them.
