This year, I’m making many of the holiday gifts that I’ll be giving. One of my favorite things to give, that you might also like to give to your friends and family, is this homemade cookie mix.
This high protein, gluten free cookie mix is quick and easy to make. Further, you are giving a friend or loved one a very special present –the opportunity to have the smell of fresh baked cookies wafting through their home with minimal effort. Here’s what you’ll need to make this fun DIY Christmas present.

How do we use glass jars for freezing? For example I like to make big post of soup and freeze 1 or 2 portion sizes. I have been using plastic. Glas and freezing makes me a bit nervous. How do I do that and not worry about breakage?
Susan, the glass mason jars I buy have a fill line for safe freezing :-)
Hi Elana, different Susan here…which mason jars do you buy? Are they Ball, Kerr or other? The only ones that I’ve found that are labeled “freezer safe” are the pint and half pint marked as such, usually by Kerr out here on the west coast. Anything larger than a pint seems to be unrated.
Susan, if you click the green text above you will be taken to the ones I use :-)
what can i use instead of grapeseed oil? Would olive oil work?
Lisa, I haven’t tried that so not sure, if you do experiment please let us know how it goes :-)
