RECIPE: Collette from "Cut out the Crap" shares with us her PARENTS COOKIES recipe.



These cookies make a regular appearance in our home and disappear just as quick! They have also been one of the most popular recipes from my blog and I couldn’t help but share them again! I have called them ‘parents cookies’ as I tried to selfishly ban the children from eating them so I could have them all to myself ha ha....it didn’t work....they know my hiding place for goodies in the kitchen so we all enjoy them together now!

Collette at the beach for the first day this summer. 
I am semi organized for Christmas although I feel like I have a years worth of wrapping ahead of me, with 4 children and my twins that are turning 2 on the 23rd December, it is going to be the most fun Christmas yet! As for my beautiful books, I am excited to have just ordered more Cut out the Crap books which is now well and truly a best seller! YAY!  Cut out the Crap for Kids is going wonderfully and the feedback I have been getting (it’s NOT just for kids!) is touching. I am busy working on Cut out the Crap #3 at the moment , which still remains nameless! Ha ha!

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas full of great healthy and scrumptious food and many blessings for the New Year.

Take Care of You,
Collette x



Parents Cookies

1 ½ cups almond meal
2 tblspns coconut butter/oil – (my measurement was 2 tblspns solid and then I melted it to liquid)
2 tblspns rice milk
½ cup dairy free choc drops – I use the brand “Sweet William”
2 tblspns rapadura 
1 tspn cacao 
1 tspn cinnamon

Preheat oven to 180c and line a large tray with baking paper.

In a large bowl place the almond meal, coconut oil and rice milk. Mix well.

Add the remaining ingredients and combine well, slightly kneading it in the bowl to make sure it’s all sticking together (I used my hands).

WARNING: AT THIS STAGE DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES TRY THE COOKIE MIX AS IT WILL NOT MAKE ITS WAY INTO THE OVEN.....ALREADY IT’S SO YUMMY!!!!! HA HA HA....I KNOW YOUR GOING TO NOW!!!!!!

Make round balls (teaspoon size) and place on tray. Slightly flatten with a fork. (Mine did not spread so they don’t have to be too far apart).

Bake in preheated oven to 7-8 minutes.

Allow to cool on a wire rack.

Makes 18 cookies.

NOTE: If there are any cookies left (after you ate some uncooked and then one hot out the oven....and then 2 once they were cool....oh hang on, that was ME that did that!) you can then try this addition.....
ICING
2 tblspns icing sugar
½ tspn cacao (once again this can be cocoa)
1 tspn rice milk

Mix all ingredients well.

Place a small amount one cooled cookie and place another cookie on top! Not only do they remind me of the look of “Kingston” biscuits, I get the taste too.....
