GP’s Lalo Cookies

Thumbprint cookies (I used blueberry jam and lingonberry jam).

Yep, another Gwyneth Paltrow recipe. I can’t help myself!!!! I love her recipes and ingredients so much!!! Plus if I eat like her, I will look like her, right? These cookies are the bomb (yep, used that word, say what 2003). They are dense, sweet, healthy, and hit-the-spot. They are more like a granola bar than a cookie. But healthy snack trumps oreos anyday.

Ingredients:

So friends, eat these, and we will all become besties with GP. They also have another perk — they are vegan and gluten free! Great for all the people with food allergies. Except for those people allergic to nuts….sooo…..Happy weekend!

    • She herself might be annoying, but her website and cookbooks (and style) are amazing.
