When the cookies are done, they resemble speckled eggs. They taste like black jelly beans - or licorice if you will.

  • 1 big heaping Tablespoon of ghee
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar [or BTD compliant substitute]
  • 1 Tablespoon rice milk or any kind of compliant milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (the real stuff!)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt - fine crystals
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder [baking powder recipes]
  • 1-1/2 cup millet flour or 3/4 cup oat flour with 3/4 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/4 cup applesauce (if you aren't allergic, then add one egg and omit applesauce)
  • 1/4 cup fresh blueberries (frozen will also work)
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of anise flavoring
How to make it:
  1. Use a food processor or blender and blend everything together (yes, the blueberries too)
  2. Drop by small teaspoon onto non stick cookie sheet.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 - 14 minutes.
  4. Allow cookies to cool completely before attempting to remove.
