  1. I discovered the basic cake mix cookie recipe about 25 years ago when my kids were little. It’s like your Funfetti recipe without the extra sprinkles: cake mix, 2 eggs, 1/3 cup oil. These were a great option when we were financially strapped, but I wouldn’t feed them to kids on a regular basis. Boxed cake mixes contain hydrogenated oils (trans fats) and often synthetic propylene glycol mono- and diesters of fats, artificial flavors and dyes – dyes which have been banned in other countries due to the evidence of carcinogenic effects linked to them. Maybe a health food cake mix doesn’t have those things, but honestly, I make homemade cookies every week for my 89 year old dad and although they cost maybe double what cake mix cookies cost, I know what is in them.
