A Gluten Free Lifestyle - Jody Leigh for Gluten Free

I was honored when Toronto based designer Jody Leigh asked me to be the brand ambassador of her newest project; a collection of t-shirts called Jody Leigh for Gluten Free. This line was an idea born after Jody was diagnosed with the Celiac disease. The chic t-shirts was a way to educate her loved ones what was going on and promoting her new way of life. I may not have this disease but I am very conscious of gluten intake into my body. I even go as far as telling waitresses that I have a gluten intolerance, and my friends do get a kick out of my actions. Being around Jody I have found an even wider appreciation of this disease and really appreciate what a life changing event it can be. Her debut collection has brought together style and food by making a bold statement, and even maybe making it cool to finally wear your food on your shirt.

To celebrate the holidays, Jody and I are sharing with you our favorite gluten free chocolate chip cookie recipe. Enjoy and gf yourself!

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie

- 2 cups almond flour
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup vegan shortening
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup agave nectar
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips

- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
- Combine all of the dry ingredients into a bowl (I like to sift each one so it makes it easier to mix and the latter is less clumpy)
- Than mix all of the wet ingredients into the dry
- Take the made dough and form them into 1 inch balls and press onto wax paper
- Bake for 10 to 12 minutes and than cool and serve
