All-Natural Real Food Coloring

Food Dye & Coloring additives are extremely harmful for your health–not a “fun” treat for the holidays.

Since they have been linked to tumor growth, cancer, hypersensitivity, hyperactivity, and other neurological impacts, they will never be welcome ingredients in food we make or buy.

If you don’t already, I encourage you to try real food alternatives which can add color and even beneficial nutrition!

In a lot of experimenting, I’ve found that real food ingredients can make beautiful, vibrant colors when chosen and prepared the right way.

Spinach for Green Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Spinach was an easy choice for this recipe since it is full of deep green color and has very little flavor.

Don’t worry, these cookies don’t taste like spinach! I wouldn’t recommend counting these as a vegetable serving. 😉

This healthy swap can stand up next to any other festive dessert or snack.

My taste testers loved the color, flavor, and texture of these cookies. They have just the right amount of chewiness that a chocolate chip cookie should have.

Using Essential Oils in Cooking

Before I began using essential oils, I used extracts in my cooking.

The main difference as a cook or baker is the potency. Extracts typically use an alcohol to preserve flavor and freshness and contain some oil from the food source, however some extracts contain artificial flavors.

Pure essential oils (from a quality source, not the grocery store or Amazon) should not contain any alcohol and are made from only the essential oils extracted from the food source with nothing artificial added.

For instance, lemon oil is made from the oil in the lemon peel that is pressed to extract the incredible smell, flavor, and benefits found when you slice into a fresh lemon. Peppermint oil is made from pressing large amounts of peppermint leaves to extract the oils.

While going from extracts to essential oils was an adjustment for me, I love the difference in flavor and food integrity. Here are some of the benefits:

  • Always have ingredients on hand, even when that particular fruit/vegetable/herb is out of season.
  • Avoid artificial ingredients and enjoy a pure unadulterated flavor.
  • Cost effective since they won’t spoil and a little goes a long way (a toothpick dip or one drop is usually enough).
  • Physical and emotional health benefits from the aroma.
  • High amounts of antioxidants.

My son LOVED these! I can’t wait to make them again. I hope they inspire some fun in your kitchen!
