Hello all! Today's post includes reimagining cookie mix, sharing treats, and a chance to win your own cookie kit. Yay!!
From time to time, I participate in blog reviews and giveway-hosting through MyBlog Spark.com. The supplies for this post, and the giveaway treats, were provided by Betty Crocker & MyBlogSpark.
Here's me, ever the Renaissance woman, sporting both an apron and my yoga gear :)
The package I received (and you could too!) included the apron, a Betty Crocker cookie mix, and mixing spoon, and a fab new cookie sheet.
I love molasses cookies and was interested to see how a mix cookie stacked up to scratch. I decided to try my hand at making the Betty Crocker Molasses Cookie Mix with a few adjustments that suit my dietary choices: lower fat, lower calorie, non-dairy. The package lists nutritional info for dry mix as well as with the added wet ingredients. I replaced the butter and egg the mix calls for with a combo of applesauce and Smart Balance in measurement amounts that I got from How It All Vegan's section on replacements.
Guess what?! It worked! These cookies came out moist, chewy, and very flavorful without the use of eggs or butter. I only tasted a bit of one, as I am embarking on another round of the Adventure Cleanse Tuneup over at Crazysexylife.com. NO sugar for me for a few weeks!
To make sure I wasn't tempted, and as way to brighten someone's day, I bundled these babies up and made a care package for our very nice next door neighbors. Everybody wins!!
Speaking of winning...would you like a Betty Crocker cookie prize pack of your own? Veganize it, eat it raw, share it with yer pals, gift it to someone sweet, whatever you like! Here's how to enter:
