dana bueno 5 super seeds cookie

Exploring the city and its delish food scene has kept me out of the kitchen the last two months.

But my cravings for some of the treats I love brought me back!

This weekend I spent time adapting and perfecting some changes to my 5 Super Seeds Cookie.

Here is my gluten-free, vegan 5 Super Seeds Cookie!

I’ve been happily snacking on it all weekend…
