I used to be known for my yummy baking skills, but have all but given this up. I figure that if I should not eat it then I should not be feeding it to others. I now make almond flour chocolate chip cookies sweetened w/ honey and stevia or chocolate dipped strawberries for such occasions.
I used to make stuff for bake sales, but now just make a $ donation since I don't want their goodies and they would sell mine for less than it cost to make them. It really has been a tough shift for me and sometimes I feel a little guilty for not "playing along", but society has gone a little nuts with this stuff. We've all been fed lies and judged for being obese, well let them judge me as nutty, but atleast I am healthier.
And I know the cookies you tried to make all too well - while I don't care much for them, they ar my Hubby and kids favorite treat.
