Elana at Elana’s Pantry is very handy with cooking up healthy desserts. We don’t really make a lot of desserts. Most weeks, we’re happy with a bit of chocolate, or fudge babies, or date energy balls, but some weeks, we have a special occasion or a special guest. When we do, these are recipes that I pull out for great eats. Both recipes have stood the test of picky eaters and of non-gluten-free/non-cavepeople tastebuds.
Elana’s chocolate chip cookies are most like the chocolate chip cookies that my family craves when they want a cookie. They are chewy and yummalicious. We do often use agave in them, although, I’m still unsure how I feel about agave. I’ve not tried them with honey, so I cannot speak to how they will do with that substitution.
Elana’s Almond Joy Bars are an amazing treat. My husband and guests have all commented that these are the best gluten free treat they have EVER tasted. I have to say, they are pretty amazing. These use coconut palm sugar in them. If you like coconut and chocolate together, these bars are going to fit your bill.
