Espresso and Sea Salt cookies are the perfect sweet and salty treat. My name is Melissa and I am so excited to be a new contributor here at Around My Family Table. I am the owner of The Baked Equation in Phoenix and have a passion for nutrition. I can’t wait to delve into a new area of recipe development. More and more as a baker I am being asked if I make treats that are gluten-free, dairy-free, or egg-free. This can be quite the challenge.
Allergies are becoming quite the plague in our culture. Many people have to change their diets radically. Many parents and adults scramble to find little treats that they can indulge in once in a while. While allergies to food can be difficult, it is causing people to ask good questions about the ingredients in the foods they are eating. Food is the fuel for our bodies and our bodies were never meant to handle the chemical overload that is being placed on them today.
When making gluten free desserts, I love to add cinnamon. I think the cinnamon helps cut the after taste that you can sometimes get from gluten-free flour combinations. Don’t be afraid to change up the recipe. For example, if you do not like a strong coffee flavor in desserts, change the Via amount from 2 tablespoons to 1 tablespoon. Did you know that coffee enhances the flavor of chocolate?
