Decadent Disco Ball Cookies

Truth be told, I am not a huge sprinkle cookie fan, but when my son came to me and asked if we could adapt a recipe he had seen so I could eat them, I could not resist. The end result was one of the fluffiest, moist, and amazing cookies I have ever eaten. I am so proud of my son for really considering joining me in the treats. I am blessed to see that my little sensory kid, is starting to blossom and open up his eyes and doors to new possibilities. This is a recipe to get down and dirty with your kids with.

Decadent Disco Ball Cookies

1 cup softened vegan butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 egg (or egg substitute, For this recipe I would recommend banana for an added flavor element.)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup real maple syrup

4 cups gluten-free flour blend

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp baking soda

1/4 cup granulated sugar

Sprinkles or other toppings to roll around in

 

Important notes:

  • If you don’t like sprinkles, you could also roll the cookies in granulated sugar, chopped nuts, coconut, or other toppings. The possibilities are only limited to your imagination.
  • You don’t have to use incredibly expensive maple syrup, most grocery stores have their own variety that is quite inexpensive.
  • For colorful variations, you can add a drop of food coloring in to really make a special cookie.
  • For a cool treat, you can place some ice cream between two of the cookies for an ice cream sandwich that is delicious & nutritious!
