Can I still have cookies on the Candida Diet?

It is NO JOKE, I enjoy a sweet treat every now and again.  The hardest part of the whole candida struggle is the whole no sugar deal.  BLAH.  what fun is life without a cookie now and then, right?

candida diet paleo cookieI am a big fan of everything in moderation.  So I did some experimenting and came up with this delicious cookie.  My husband tells me I need to use the word COOKIE carefully.  Okay, if you are used to eating a ton of processed food and sugar this may not be high on your list of repeat foods, but for ME - it was heavenly!

1 egg (Free range/cage free/organic)
1 Tablespoon of almond flour
1 Tablespoon of coconut flour
1 Teaspoon of organic stevia
1 Teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
1 Teaspoon of Enjoy Life (diary free/soy free/nut free) Chocolate Chips
1 microwave friendly mug!
In a small bowl, combine your dry ingredients.  In add in your egg and vanilla - combine.  Add in your chocolate chips.  Spray your microwavable mug with a non-stick spray and add in your cookie mix.  Microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds (approximately, as microwaves tend to vary).

While this is okay on the candida diet - it is important to remember this is a TREAT.  Eating 5 of these mug cookies a day could be hazardous to your waistline!

Did you try it?  Let me know!

  1. Everyone needs a treat once in a while! I love that it's a single serving instead of making a whole batch. That usually leads to disaster for me!
