It’s a gorgeous day here – blue skies, breezy, warm but not hot, and no humidity.

Chocolate Chip and Raisin Almond Pulp Cookies (vegan, gluten-free)

Since this month’s theme is reducing packaging, it makes sense to post a recipe that’s all about re-using – minimizing waste by upcycling it into these tasty cookies.
