  1. My theory is… if you’re on a strict calorie specific diet, you definitely shouldn’t be eating cookies with sugar and butter in them. Most Gluten Free recipies are not meant for a reduced calorie diet. They are an occasional treat just like a candy bar or ice cream. There are websites online where you can plug all ingredients in and divide by the servings to get individual servings. I believe Sparkpeople has one… or just google it to find many options.
