My husband Howard and son Ted love, love, LOVE their sweet treats. They definitely have a sweet tooth so biscuits/cookies are always gobbled up in this house. For this recipe I used a packet of allergy free choc chips. I’m not a fan of buying factory produced choc chips. If it means Ted will eat the biscuits I bake then every so often I will buy them.
For me it’s about using good quality ingredients that won’t harm the body or the planet. I would not normally buy packet food but Ted will more likely enjoy them if they are slightly unhealthy. We live in a world where we are surrounded by packets and sugar. As a mum I just think occasionally I just have to roll with it. Below is a video and recipe for you.
Do you use packets and have you ever wondered how not too? Let me know in the comments below and please don’t forget to like and follow me.

Gluten and Dairy Free Choc Chip Cookies were a huge hit. Howard and Ted really enjoyed these cookies. They were so yummy and so easy to bake. I thought these would be good for children to make while on school holidays. Plus they also make a great gift for a friend or family member. They are a great sweet treat that everyone can enjoy. However you decide to eat these biscuits/cookies as always please enjoy. Thank you xxx
