It is time to clean out my overflowing pantry. Did you know you can make a delicious gluten free cookie out of the partially empty bags of snacks in your pantry?
These gluten free cookies are called many things, gluten free compost cookies, garbage cookies, etc. Anway you name them, the mantra is to clean out your pantry and make this easy compost cookie recipe with the scraps!
How many of you have family members who eat a bag of gluten free chips, pretzels, nuts, candy, or even steal some of your secret stash of baking chips….only leaving a few bites left in the package?
You know what they do next…they seal the bag back up and stuff it into the back of the pantry. It’s like they can’t manage the last two bites, and just put it away out of sight. These gluten free cookies help you use up those crumbs and leftovers.
How many of these bags reside in the back of your pantry?
Here are some of the things I found:
Garbage or Treasure for “Garbage Cookies”?
How long has that all even been in my pantry?
Gluten free food is EXPENSIVE!
I can’t in good conscience just toss it all.
What if I just smash/chop it all the leftovers up and toss it into a cookie?
Salty and sweet. Everyone loves that combination, right? Since starting my blog, my family is used to my wacky creations…this will just take it to a new level.
(The scraps the first time I made these cookies, and the scraps the second time. This compost cookie recipe works with any scraps!)
