Sure, those sweet and creamy Frappuccinos served at Starbucks sometimes SOUND like the perfect pick-me-up, but with a whopping 52 grams of sugar, it can cause insulin spikes, fat storage, energy crash, and a feast for bad bacteria in your gut. If they still sound appetizing, I suggest measuring out 13 teaspoons of sugar for a more vivid picture! THIS lovely alternative is definitely worth trying AND after the purchasing all of the ingredients (which can all be found at Costco), you do end up saving money in the long run.
No life story. Just a recipe I came up with. Only thing I’ll say, it would be good with 1/4-1/3 cup chopped walnuts!
Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
- 2 Cups brown rice flour
- 2 3/4 Cups organic rolled oats
- 1/2 Cup organic butter (1 stick, softened) or coconut oil
- 3 organic eggs
- 1 Cup organic brown coconut sugar
- ½ of 9 oz. bag Hu Chocolate Gems
- 1 Teaspoon baking soda
- 1 Teaspoon sea salt or pink salt
Preheat oven and bake at 375. Fully mix all ingredients together. Scoop approx. a golf ball size of dough and lightly flatten into a disk. The cookies will grow as they bake so make sure they're about 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes until edges are golden brown.
