After Q began her complete milk elimination Thanksgiving weekend, we were craving something sweet. I hit up a natural foods store to see what they offered and found several types of candy bars and chocolate morsels all made by Enjoy Life.
I made chocolate chip cookies using the classic Nestle Tollhouse recipe substituting Earth Balance for the butter and the Enjoy Life chocolate chips for the Nestle ones. I ended up freezing half the dough, which was much appreciated a few weeks later.
The cookies turned out great with the substitutions and were enjoyed by all!
Carb count? I don’t know. I didn’t have it in me at the time to figure it out and I made an educated guess that, if I recall, was pretty close. The Nestle recipe says 15 carbs for 1/60th of the batch.
I’ve since found out that Baker’s and Ghiradhelli make semi-sweet chocolate without milk. Both brands are much cheaper than Enjoy Life. But the good thing about Enjoy Life is that all of their products are free of the 8 most common allergens. If anyone knows of a source of the Enjoy Life chips on the cheap, please let me know!
- Enjoy Life allergy information (free of the 8 most common allergens)
- Ghiradelli allergy information (risk of cross-contamination from milk, peanuts, and tree nuts)
- Baker’s product information (I don’t know about cross contamination; it’s not easy to find on their website)
