1. I believe in moderation not deprivation
2. There is nothing like a warm chocolate chip cookie
3. They are made with real ingredients that you can pronounce
4. They are really really good:)
Rebar Chocolate Chip Cookies
(If you don't have this cookbook yet...put it on your list)
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cup brown sugar***wait! I only use 3/4 of a cup and they are sweet enough**
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup dried apricots chopped (or other dried fruit)
1 1/2 cup flour **I use 3/4 cup flour and 3/4 cup oats**
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup roasted and chopped nuts (I like pecans and sunflower seeds)
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 and line a cookie sheet with parchment
Cream together butter, sugar, eggs vanilla
Combine remaining ingredients
Mix wet and dry and drop heaping tablespoons of batter onto cookie sheet.
Bake for 9 minutes, rotating sheet half way through. Don't overcook!
A great place to dip these cookies
4 cups water
1 ginger thumb sliced
1 3 inch cinnamon stick
10 pods cardamom
1/2 teaspoon peppercorns
3 tea bags
2 tbs honey (optional)
1.5 cups milk (I use vanilla soymilk)
Boil water and spices, reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes
Strain and steep tea bags
Remove bags, add honey and milk and reheat.

(I usually double the recipe and freeze the balls)
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup toasted nuts/seeds
1/2 cup dried fruit
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 tbs honey or other liquid sweetener (maple syrup)
Wheat germ (optional)
Mix all ingredients and pulse lightly in food processer to combine. Roll into 1.5 inch balls and coat with wheat germ if using. Refrigerate until set. For a more decadent treat, drizzle tops with melted chocolate. Enjoy!
Some of my favorite combinations are:
Cranberry, white chocolate
