|Chunky Monkey Granola|
Many of the meals I make already fit the profile or require only minor changes, so that's not too bad. I've had to tweak my breakfast routine a bit. But my snacks? I needed to do some baking to replace my gluten- and dairy-filled treats. I made some cookies and quick bread last week, adjusting the ingredients (although I botched one batch of peanut butter cookies which my sister is now enjoying). I discovered that replacing the flour with almond meal in the coconut macaroons was a delicious substitution. We'll be keeping that change regardless of the outcome of this trial run.
I made some granola this weekend, based on a recipe I've been meaning to try for nearly a year. I found some dairy-free, soy-free chocolate chips and swapped the butter for coconut oil. It's delicious, although it's a bit sticky. I like my granola a bit drier. But it satisfies my sweet tooth, so I am happy. I agree with the gal from Very Culinary - it's going to be hard not to polish off the whole batch in a day or two!
