After the cookie recipe I came across a recipe for a sugar free frosting recipe using Splenda and powdered sugar. I am not big on using "fake" (meaning I would rather use white sugar than a replacement that is fake) food but if you have diabetes and need to eliminate sugar this may work for you.
Chocolate Chip Cookies (the healthy way)
2 C flour (substitute 2 c wheat flour)
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
3/4 C butter, melted (substitute 3/4 C applesauce)
1 C brown sugar
1/2 C white sugar (substitute 1/2 C powdered milk)
1 T vanilla
1 egg (use powdered egg 1 T powder + 2 T water just added don't need to premix)
1 egg yolk (I used 1 T egg powder and only 1 T water)
2 C chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325. Cream the butter (applesauce) and sugars (powdered milk). It won't really cream like real butter just mix well. Beat in the eggs, vanilla, and then add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Take 1/4 C dough and place on cookie sheet 3" apart. Bake for 15-17 minutes. Remember they won't brown like real cookies so don't go by color when you think they are done. Mine took about 16 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet.
Confectioners Sugar Replacement
2 C powdered milk
2 C cornstarch
1 C Splenda (sugar substitute)
Combine all in a blender or food processor and whip until well blended and powdered. Use as a frosting, baking, etc.
January Self-Reliant Goals:
Storage Goal: Powdered Milk 16lbs PP: Powdered milk at the cannery now costs $34.80 for a $25lb bag. If you can only go down and buy the 25lb bags that is great, it is a start.
Non-Food Storage Goal: Bleach 1 gallon per person. This will be used for cleaning and water purification.
72-Hour Kit Goal: Gather a change of clothes including underwear and shoes for every family member. Include warm coats and boots or have them immediately accessible. Also put $20 in cash in small bills in your kits.
Enjoy the journey!
Enjoy the blessings!
Feel the peace!!
