Gluten-Free Book Giveaway EXTRAVAGANZA: Super Healthy Cookies

Update: This giveaway is now closed and the winners have been notified. Thank you!

Here we are, on Day 3 of the Gluten-Free Book Giveaway EXTRAVAGANZA! If you missed out on Day 1 or Day 2 you’re not too late – check out my review of The Everything Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Cookbook, and my review of The Gluten-Free Edge, and enter for your chances to win!

Today’s book, Super Healthy Cookies: 50 Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Recipes for Delicious & Nutritious Treats is my kind of book! I’m all about having my cake (well, in this case, cookie) and eating it too – and this book is essentially that kind of book! Feel like you’re being indulgent, but in fact, these cookies are chock full of nutrient-dense ingredients! Not that I would expect anything less from Hallie of Daily Bites. She is all about cooking with healthy, wholesome foods. Her first book, The Pure Kitchen (which I reviewed as well), was full of real food recipes.

This time, however, she really hit it out of the park. I’m not sure I really need to say more, because the title of the book says it all. Fifty recipes for healthy cookies? Oh, yeah! I had trouble trying to decide which cookie to make. Finally, I went for those all-time familiar favorites – peanut butter and chocolate – and made her Chocolate-Drizzled Peanut Butter Cookies (page 109).

Of course, anything with chocolate drizzled on top is awesome, but truth be told, I loved these equally as well without the chocolate adornment. Either way, they were spectacular, and something I’d be happy to serve as a treat or an after-school snack for the kids, since there is no refined sugar or starch. Win-win!

    Just one? Well, I LOVE Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies! But I also absolutely LOVE Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip cookies! To die for!

  2. Elaine L says

    Our new favorite is the Cowgirl cookie from the cookbook you are giving away! My kids loved the cookie. This cookbook will be one I give away to other GF Families at Christmas time.

  3. Johanna B says

    I love old fashioned Snickerdoodles. I’m just learning to bake GF and would love to add this cookbook to my collection. I’ve been GF for 4 years now, but I’m just now attempting to bake.

  4. says

    I know it’s trite, but I have to go with a classic–chocolate chip cookies. They are my weakness, actually. Although I haven’t had a good one since going GF a few months ago. (I’ve been DF for 8 years now.)

  5. Karen says

    Kitchen sink or cowgirl cookies….the oatmeal base with everything thrown in….nuts, seeds, chips, dried fruit…. So good.

  6. Renee Richardson says

    My favorite is chocolate chip. Yummy! Thanks for the wonderful giveaway :)

  8. says

    and finally I an now following Daily Bites on Twitter as PureCleanFloors. :-)

    (Okay, so I did everything but Pintrest… I’m not there yet!)

  9. Stinna says

    I don’t really eat cookies much since going GF, but my 6 six year old son LOVES peanut butter cookies and he just had to go GF a couple of months ago, so we would love more recipes.

  10. Tracy says

    I have never met a cookie that I didnt’ love! Anything with chocolate, peanut butter or caramel is good with me!

  11. says

    My favorite cookie is from a bakery in Seattle called Flying Apron Bakery (gluten free and vegan!)…it is the most amazing peanut butter chocolate chip cookie. I’ve tried to replicate, but to no avail.

  12. Karen says

    I love chocolate chip cookies with dark chocolate chips AND gingersnaps. I have hardly taken the time to bake cookies for myself in the last 10 years – I would love to begin to treat myself once again!

  13. Michelle says

    Chocolate drizzled peanut butter cookies sound divine!
    I’m busy planning my son’s first birthday party and he’s on a dairy free gluten free diet – this book would really come in handy helping to make nice treats!

  14. Jordan says

    My favourite cookie: triple chocolate cloud cookies with white chocolate, or raw lavendar meltaways
