Baby Boo has this thing where she gets some sort of sickness every month. I'm not sure why, but it seems like with each month there is some sort of cold, rash, fever, ear infection, virus, etc. going around and Baby Boo's immune system welcomes them in with wide open arms.
This weekend, Baby Boo just so happened to have a high fever for 4 days straight, which left us stuck inside giving lots of cuddles, watching more than enough Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and lots and lots of sweet eats.
When Boo is sick all she wants is sugar...Ice cream, applesauce, cookies, popsicles, juice, chocolate milk...
Actually she's one smart cookie, no pun intended, and probably knows that every time she gets sick we spoil her rotten and will give her anything to eat just as long as she has SOMETHING in her body.
Can't pull a fast one on this mama!

Grain Free and Sugar Free Chocolate Chip Cookies-Single Serving
1 1/2 TB. almond flour
1 1/2 TB. coconut flour
dash of salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 TB. melted coconut oil
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. chia seeds mixed with 1 tsp. water to form gel
1 TB. mashed banana or date puree
2 TB. chocolate chips*-100 % dark chocolate bar cut up, cocoa nibs, raisins, etc. would all be a good non-sugar option. Feel free to add reg. chocolate chips, they just won't be sugar free.
1.Preheat oven to 350. Mix dry ingredients together, then add wet. Mash/mix together until dough forms. Mix in chocolate chips.
2. Form ball into cookie and drop onto prepared baking sheet. Flatten cookie out to desired thickness. (The cookie won't expand.)
3. Cook for 15-18 minutes. You can also make two smaller cookies, which will cook at a less time.
Chocolate Chip cookies are the necessity to every sick day.
Especially when you are already feeling crummy and you the last thing you want to do is eat something to make you feel worse. (AKA like two sticks of butter and two cups of sugar.)
I think Minnie would agree, don't you?
Now, excuse me while I go tell Boo her fever is gone and it's back to work! I think she is getting used to the sick life a little too much...
