Using Organic Ingredients

We talked about the importance of raw sugar on our Absolutely Perfect Snickerdoodle Cookies, but what about other healthy ingredients?

I’m just about the last person who will get all preachy when it comes to how you do your baking. However, I do feel that when making something with this much chocolate and sweet stuff it is important to think about just how much processed food you are using vs. raw or organic food.

What’s the Deal with Organic Flour?

Just like with raw sugar organic four is flour that hasn’t been messed around with as much as traditional all-purpose flour. There is less processing, bleaching, and other things that strip the flour of it’s original form and original nutrients.

Overall, the decision to use entirely organic, vegan, or raw ingredients is up to you. It is nearly imporssible in these cookies with the Rolo candy used. However, just a few healthy changes here and there can really add up to a big impact on your health and well being.
