For those of you who don’t know, I LOVE my treats! I try to keep them to a minimum. But, I do eat them.
When making treats I try to make healthier versions of them. This white chocolate chip cookie is made with garbanzo beans (chickpeas)! I didn’t use flour, but oat flour instead. Don’t worry, you don’t have to go out and buy a $5 bag of oat flour, you can make oat flour in seconds using regular old fashioned oats in your food processor! Easy peasy. Honey is used instead of white sugar, and the only naughty thing is the white chocolate chips which you can omit if you like. It would be just as tasty with dried cranberries or raisins. I love nuts in my cookies, so I added peanut butter. You can just as easily substitute almond butter, pb2, or omit nuts all together if you like.
OK, enough small talk. Here’s what you’ve been waiting for… Enjoy!

Today I’m going to introduce you to one of my favorite people on the planet. Her name is Hosanna Rodriguez. She’s been a friend of mine for many years now. Besides her fabulous name, I love Hosanna’s heart. She really cares about her family like none other. An amazing wife, a homeschooling mom of 4 little ones, and a godly woman who cares about health and helping others Hosanna is a great mix of every woman.
From time to time I get the pleasure of sampling wonderful dishes at Hosanna’s home. Every one I’ve tasted I’ve LOVED! I’ve asked Hosanna if I could share some of her awesome dishes with you and she said YES! Ladies, we are truly blessed!
Here’s her first treat for us… a Scrumptious Spinach Salad! Enjoy!
FYI… if you want to learn how to make the yummy lemon dressing Hosanna uses, stay tuned I’ll post it next week.
