Title: Peace Jazz Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Post by: Ed Bauman on December 06, 2011, 09:38:32 PM
I entered the realm of music promotion, but putting on a concert sponsored by the Bahai's of Sonoma County on Nov 27, 2011. Over 100 people came to hear some inspiring traditional jazz with a touch of blues and gospel music. With the help of chefs Tiana Kraus and Naomi Tamoda, we made Eating for Health Chocolate Chip Cookies that we served with organic rice milk and the Vital Scoop green powder. What a satisfying combination, jazz, cookies and green milk! Many people asked for the recipe that follows. Find some music that puts you in a peaceful mood. Turn up the oven to 375, mix up a yummy cookie batter, invite some friends and family over to dig in and enjoy. Don't forget the Vital Scoop and milk. Ahh.....

1/2 cup maple syrup

Thanks so much Ed for this recipe with maple syrup as a terrific sugar substitute. Will be delighted to keep it in mind for the future.
