Laura adapted this recipe from one she found on the back of a rice milk box. They are the closest I've found to "real" chocolate chip cookies.

2 c. whole wheat flour
3/4 c. grain sweetened chocolate chips
1/2 c. applesauce
1/2 c. nuts*
3/4 c. pure maple syrup
1 t. vanilla
1/2 c. rice milk
1 T. baking powder

• Mix all ingredients together.

• Drop onto lightly greased (pam spray works great) cookie sheet.

• Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.

• Makes 2 dozen medium cookies.

*The cookies in the picture do not have nuts; I didn't have any on hand when I made them. They were still delicious.

Have you ever made these with gluten-free flour? I tried it tonight and they came out like muffin tops and a little gummy. I was just wondering to see what your experience was if you had tried it that way.

I haven't ever tried with gluten free flour. Sorry! Hope you can figure out something that works.

Tried these yesterday, they are almost gone today :) - my new favorite! I used carob chips and added pecans and coconut. YUM! I LOVE Greener Eating!!!
