I love the idea of blueberry cookies especially during the summer with so many fresh berries. Since I am gluten-free and refined sugar-free, I would make a lot of changes. I ONLY use WHOLE GRAIN gluten-free flours (brown rice, quinoa, amaranth, teff, sorghum, oats, buckwheat, etc.). I would also eliminate the sugar and reduce the sweetener down to only 1/4 cup and use coconut or maple sugar or a combination of maple syrup, monk fruit or coconut nectar. In order to make it dairy-free, I would probably use a non-dairy (oat, coconut, cashew or almond) milk based plain yogurt. It seems like there’s too much yogurt so I would reduce it to 1/2 cup yogurt and add more non-dairy milk, apple juice or water, as needed. If you don’t have any yogurt, then you can always use apple sauce or any fruit baby food. Anyone have any thoughts on my ideas? I have been gluten-free for 20 years and I love to cook and bake from scratch daily. As you can tell, I create, develop and modify most of the recipes I find in order to make them even healthier. Fresh is best and eating healthy is the only way to go to live long and well.
