A huge tenant of Wholistic Nut is minimizing my environmental footprint with ensuring zero food waste. While I usually equate Earth Day and the environment with recycling or cutting down my water usage, the way we eat & cook is very much tied to helping our environment. From choosing to shop at your local farmers market, to thinking about clever ways to use all the groceries you purchase, I'm committed to taking the right actions, large or small, to bettering our Earth.
So in honor of this Earth Day, I say why not create a way to enjoy delicious chocolate chip cookies while also minimizing our environmental footprint? Well, here you go ;) And to top things off, these cookies are free of grains, gluten, refined sugar, dairy, and soy. So you can enjoy with zero guilt!
