When a girlfriend spoils you with your favourite chocolate bars, you make double chocolate cookies. It’s just what you do. No questions asked.
The other day I realized that I don’t have many nut-free cookie recipes on the blog. Sure, my most popular Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies are nut-free, but there really isn’t much else that I could think of. In the name of comfort food and all things right on this blog, I decided to create the perfect crispy-on-the-edge-chewy-in-the-middle gooey double chocolate chunk cookie – free of nuts!
Behold. That cookie.
Some fun facts about these cookies…
~ virgin coconut oil replaces the need for butter
~ they are made with whole grain oat flour (and are gluten-free when using GF oats)
~ as I mentioned, these are nut-free!
~ recipe contains small amount of ground flax for some extra nutrition and a (cheap!) egg replacer
~ rich, gooey, crispy around the edges
~ satisfies the most intense chocolate craving
~ husband approved!
~ it’s a one bowl recipe. I even made the flax egg in the same bowl to save dishes.
I’m not messing around here. No sir-ee.

I’m excited to let you know that The Oh She Glows Cookbook Virtual Blog Tour kicked off yesterday! A big thanks to all the wonderful bloggers who are participating, making recipes, and sharing the book with others. I’ll be linking to blogger reviews as they come in, so keep your eyes peeled.

Many of you have been sharing social media pictures of the OSG cookbook in local bookstores, as it arrives in the mail, and recipes you’ve already made (keep in mind most retailers haven’t shipped yet, but Indigo is shipping early! Most books will ship on March 4th). So much fun. Please keep sharing your photos on twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest using the hashtag #osgcookbook and also tag @ohsheglows #ohsheglows so others can see what you’re making too. Thanks again for all your excitement and support!!
Last but not least, I’ve been asked for a Sketchie update. Thanks for your comments, personal stories, and thoughts about Sketchie in my last post, by the way. The surgery went well and he has been at the vet’s clinic under their supervision for a couple nights. Miss him greatly!! It’s amazing how many times during the day I go to do things “for Sketchie” only to realize he’s not home! I’m picking him up this afternoon though. Fingers crossed he is in good spirits and doesn’t hate me!
