This homemade Oreo™ cookie recipe is the creation of one of my all time favorite people, Rhea Kothur. Rhea came to GAPS at the young tender age of 7, and has left issues such as eczema, hives, rashes, allergies, asthma, trouble sleeping and GERD which started when she was a baby. She saw no success with steroids and carried and EpiPen most of her life. She couldn’t tolerate outdoors in Spring time, had difficulty with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and sadly, spent most of her time itching. After a few short years on GAPS, Rhea has left all these issues behind her, eats the foods she was previously had issues with, planted a garden and played soccer in the Spring with no issues and even traveled to India without worry. She is a fighter and a joy. Her desire to make clean food is passionate. This wonderful recipe is Rhea’s creation, a tribute to victory, eating food like her peers. Rhea is now 11 years old and thriving. She is the kind of young woman who makes a difference. Her beauty runs deep to her heart but her love for real food is a true example of what food can do for your health. This occasional treat is well worth it.
Homemade Oreo™ cookies are something that can make kids feel included and just like the other kids, even though they are on a real food plan.
