One of my day care families, whose son has multiple allergies, shared this recipe with me. You would never know they are free of so many allergens - they are absolutely delicious!
8 T. Palm oil shortening or Earth Balance
1/2 c. Sugar
1 t. Vanilla extract - I use Spice Islands
1 1/2 c. T.G.I.G.F! Mix
1/2 t. Baking soda
1 t. Aluminum-free Baking powder
1 T. Balsamic vinegar
1 T. Water
Mix baking powder, balsamic vinegar and water in a small dish.
1 c. Enjoy Life brand mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl cream together shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla, baking soda, T.G.I.G.F! and baking powder, balsamic vinegar and water mixture. Mix together with a fork, no mixer needed. Stir in mini chocolate chips. Using a scoop drop the batter onto a cookie sheet and bake 10-13 minutes.
