So Mother's Day is coming up and I'd like to make a treat for my MIL who cannot have wheat/gluten or cane/refined sugar. My son also cannot have these things so it will serve us well to have a GREAT recipe down for these... but I'll have to tell you what's in my pantry and I'll need some help to fill in the holes. I'm also trying to watch the salicylate levels.<br><br>
I have (and I don't have to use all this - just throwing it out there):<br><br><br>
All purpose gluten free flour<br>
almond meal<br><br>
vegan chocolate chips<br><br><br>
coconut oil<br>
olive oil<br>
canola oil<br>
pear sauce (like apple sauce only with pears - lower in salicylates)<br><br>
dates (medjool)<br>
figs (calimyrna)<br>
maple syrup<br>
coconut sugar<br>
date sugar<br>
concentrated pear juice sweetener<br>
honey<br><br><br>
eggs (from my MIL's own chickens)<br>
goat's milk<br><br>
baking powder<br>
baking soda<br><br><br>
So - if you were trying to make yummy, moist nutritious cookies - what combination would you use (from the above)?? Is there anything you'd avoid in this case?

I don't remember which nuts are high in sals and which aren't, do you have any nut butters around that are ok?<br><br><a href="http://www.thenourishinggourmet.com/2008/08/flourless-nut-butter-cookies.html" target="_blank">http://www.thenourishinggourmet.com/...r-cookies.html</a><br><br>
We really like this recipe, I'd think coconut sugar would work just fine.

I have almond butter (but I think it's higher in sals) and peanut butter - which my kids, dh and MIL will probably like better anyways. I'm so curious how it holds all together without "flour" or fine powder of some kind - I guess the sugar and nut butter and egg would work together for that type of thing - ? Anyways - trying it out - will let ya know how it goes <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
