    These were pretty good, for vegan. I did use regular flour, and 1/4 cup each maple syrup and agave nectar. Otherwise I did not deviate from the recipe. These cookies were done at 12 mins in my convection oven.

    i used regular flour and the cookies turned out very nicely, though a little bit dry. but even better than the cookies is the dough! it's amazing! it's especially good rolled into balls and frozen.


I am looking for recipes and foods for my brother. He has been diagnosed with 'Leaky Gut' caused by an overgrowth of candida yeast.The foods are getting harder and harder to find as the diet goes on because we want to give some vareity. He can't eat soy, eggs, dairy, gluten or sugar. To top it all off this has to be low carb. I hope to find some recipes, make substitutions when I have to so that I can find something for him to eat. I'll be sure to post any new recipes here and a few other sites for people with leaky gut.
