Gluten-Free SunButter Protein Cookies

Who doesn’t love cookies? I definitely love my fair share of cookies, but I don’t love my fair share of sugar. I heard of this 3-ingredient peanut butter cookies and figured I’d give them a try, but I needed to make my own modifications to healthify. (Can we just pretend “healthify” is a word?) I looked at my available ingredients and considered the strict elimination diet I’m currently following. Here is what I ended up making… and they are pretty delicious if I don’t say so myself! I hope you also like them.

Allergen/Gluten-Free Bread in a Mug

Yep! I said it. Allergen-Free and Gluten-Free bread…. and in a mug! I am on an elimination diet, so there is a very limited amount of food I can eat right now. I searched and searched for a recipe that I could use to make myself a little side of bread to dip in my french onion soup (since I can’t use the typical bread pieces or cheese). Well, when you can’t find one, you make one. At least that’s the attitude I have had to adopt over the last year or so.
