Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies for One

Since I'm really the only one doing GAPS at my house when I make sweet treats I need to make as small an amount as possible. For I have learned if it's there, Starlene will eat it until it's gone.  So today, when I saw this recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies at Health, Home Happiness I knew I had better not even consider making two dozen of these babies.

First I quartered the recipe, and then I halved that so that I would end up with three little cookies. I even did a calorie count and found that each one was just under 100 calories. Not too bad. Even though I'm not counting calories… sometimes I just like to know I'm not eating 1000 calories worth of dessert, ya know?

My recipe is slightly different than Cara's, the ingredients are the same for the most part (I omitted the egg and used raw cacao powder) but my measurements are a bit different (I used about three times as much coconut flour [affiliate link] and twice as much cocoa).

Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes.  Do not overcook.

The cookies will be fudge-like.

Makes three small cookies, just enough to make one person happy.

    @Tara, thanks for visiting and commenting, the cookies were pretty yummy. More fudge-like actually, in retrospect, but yummy. Best, Starlene

    Starlene, isn’t cocoa on the illegals list? We haven’t had any sort of chocolate since we started. I’m not sure if I want to bring back the desire for chocolate (not that it’s completely gone), but just looking in her book p. 165 says cocoa is illegal?

    Hi Erin, thank you for asking. Cocoa powder is indeed listed in the book as one of the foods to avoid. But Dr. Natasha has a Frequently Asked Questions page and says she finds some can tolerate cocoa powder once their digestive problems are healed. So it is considered an advanced food. I will paste in the question and answer below.

    Question: When can cocoa or cocao be introduced?

    Answer: Cocoa is SCD illegal. However, I find that many people can start having it occasionally on the Full GAPS Diet, once the digestive symptoms are gone. Find pure organic cocoa powder. Mixing the powder with some honey and sour cream makes a delicious dessert, and you can add it to your homemade ice cream or cakes. After trying it for the first time, observe your patient for any reactions. Cocoa is very rich in magnesium and some essential amino acids and, unless your digestive system is not ready for it, there is no need to avoid it.
