Caulipower Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

There are two problems with being a dietitian. The first one is that people often feel like you’re counting the calories they put into their mouths (believe me, I don’t like math THAT much), and the second one is that when you’re strolling down the aisles of the grocery store and see flour made out of cauliflower, you buy it. THIS STUFF.

I figured I couldn’t go wrong with cookies, right? Well, the Reilly clan had mixed reviews at first… mainly because the 4 critical kids *knew* that there was cauliflower in there (‘Why can’t we just have NORMAL chocolate chip cookies?!?”)… but when the cookies cooled down, the mild cauliflowerness disappeared and the reviews shot up from 3 to 5 stars! Boom. Buying cauliflower flour just moved out of the problem category. So, voila! Enjoy.

In veggies, Jen
