Karlie's Kookies- My Recipe

If you don't know about Karlie's Kookies by now but call yourself part 

of the fashion industry, it's time you get with the program mini fashionista.

Designed by the tall, thin, and beautiful supermodel Ms. Karlie Kloss and 

NYC dessert bar Momofoku, Karlie's Kookies are a "fashionably wholesome

cookie line" with a portion of proceeds donated to support the organization

"feed."

They are gluten-free, (pretty much) vegan, dairy free, and healthy!

If supermodels can eat them, they must be delicious and keep you thin,

right? Watch this video here to see Karlie and Jourdan Dunn 

make them with a step-by-step demonstration. I added some extra 

goodies to mine and a little bit of something different to hold the 

cookies together better, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly.

For $22, you can purchase directly through Momofoku a tin of 10 

cookies. You will have 15 at your disposable for less than $10 right

now. Is there anything better? 

Trader Joe's is becoming my favorite store, which is insane if you 

know my obsession with Whole Foods. However, the downside is

the crazy expensive cost of pretty much every food in the store unless

you are willing to lick the floor of extra crumbs. Everything at Whole

Foods can be found at Trader Joe's for HALF the price or more! A 

bag of almond flour is $13 at Whole Foods and $6 at TJ's. Plus, 

the majority is still organic and the food is high quality + delicious.

If you're on a budget but still want organic and gluten-free etc products,

try this grocery store out. 

My favoriteeee chocolate chips! Gluten-free, vegan and only a few 

ingredients. They aren't super low in calories, but will satisfy any

craving and you don't need to feel like a full bag will satisfy you. 

If watching calories, high-quality cocoa powder will also do.
