M&Mmmmm Cookies!

I was all set on an adventure to make gluten free, egg free Oatmeal Raisin Cookies when I got a little distracted.

I was shopping at our local co-op and came across what looked like M&M's but the colors were richer, more jewel toned and I thought, "Could these be a dye free version of M&M's?!!"  THEY ARE!!  Sunspire has made these beautiful Sun Drops that are a natural version of M&M's.  No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives...No kidding!!  I could not wait to surprise Noah with the good news!  He really misses M&M's now that he can't have artificial food coloring.

Ok, now I realize these are not necessarily new.  You may have known about them for a long time, but when I discover allergy friendly products, I can't wait to share them with you!  It is ALWAYS exciting to find new treats that are safe for our family.

Sunspire Sun Drops

I had to ditch the Oatmeal Raisin adventure and go straight to making M&, I mean... Sun Drop Cookies!  They do contain Gluten Free Oats, so if you can't eat oats and want to bake cookies, try one of these winners.

  1. They look great! Wish they were dairy free too, but I'd probably just use Enjoy Life chocolate chips as a replacement!

    L’extérieur de ce fourre-tout Michael Kors est un cuir métallisé de laiton froncé et froncé. Si vous connaissez les sacs à main Michael Kors, vous savez que ce cuir sera doux et souple. Les deux grandes poignées supérieures sont attachées au sac avec quelques centimètres de chaînes dorées, puis les moitiés supérieures des bretelles présentent le même cuir couleur laiton.

  5. بال فيما لو كان استخدامك الإقتراح للمبيدات ملائمًا أم لا. على طريق المثال ، قد لا يكون من الواقعي تنبأ أن تكون ممتلكاتك شاغرة تمامًا من الآفات. من المحتمل أن يكون الاستعمال المتتالي لمبيدات الآفات أكثر خطورة على النطاق الطويل من الآفات ذاتها.
