Viking (Cowboy) Cookies
Call them whatever you like. In our house we eat Viking Cookies. If you care to know why, then venture on over to how I bribe encourage my children to sit still for long periods of time.
I am very seriously working towards eliminating the majority of our grain intake for a season, yet again. As I begin transitioning our house into a GAPS friendly environment, I pulled out The Best of Grain Free Meal Plans by Cara from Health Home and Happiness.
As I began making Cowboy Cookies, I had some very disappointed boys.
Where were the cowboys?
So I changed the name of the cookie. A simple solution became a genius moment for this mom: I was making Viking Cookies to eat while we read from Viking Tales (a Heritage History story from the Young Readers Collection . . . use discount code JODIskill to receive a free gift at checkout).
Note this is a cookie that isn’t a cookie. The ingredients are stellar and the taste is AMAZING.
They are slightly sticky during production, though.
