I have been loving trying new clean, grain-free desserts lately, mostly involving pumpkin and mostly unrefined-sugar-free. Pumpkin bars with maple pecan glaze, pumpkin pie cookies, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. But I think my favorite so far have been these flourlesss peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, probably because I go crazy over peanut butter and chocolate together. Oh and also, they have sugar in them & I hadn't had sugar in awhile. Cookies just aren't quite the same without the crunch of sugar. I used organic sugar from Trader Joe's but would like to use turbinado sugar (sugar in the raw) next time, or maybe coconut sugar (has anyone tried it?)
A similar recipe that is also lipsmacking-ly tasty (and refined-sugar-free) -- flourless peanut butter chocolate chip blondies. What I'd like to try next -- raw chocolate-swirl cheesecake bars. Reminds me of the pie I had at Cafe Gratitude in Kansas City, which I have been craving ever since. If you haven't checked out The Detoxinista, you must. Definitely my go-to for nutritious, clean desserts and muffins/pancakes. She is brilliant.
