Grain and Gluten-Free Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted Jan 19 2011 7:52pm

The baking bug bit me! I think it was kind of inevitable; snowy winter day, SHE (you know who…) is on her way, and a kitchen full of baking supplies. All the ingredients for a perfect baking storm. :lol:

Grain and Gluten-Free Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup blanched almond flour or almond meal
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot powder
  • 1/4 cup quinoa flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder, preferably dark
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 20 drops liquid stevia (NuNaturals vanilla)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 TBSP butter / half stick, melted
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 325F degrees
  2. Line line sheets with parchment paper or other nonstick component
  3. Add all ingredients in stand mixer bowl or large bowl for hand-held mixer or by hand; mix until everything is thoroughly incorporated. If using stand mixer, use hollow paddle attachment. Dough will be gummy when finished.
  4. Place cookie dough about an inch to inch and a half apart on baking sheet(s)
  5. Bake on 325F degrees for 8 minutes
  6. After removing from oven, take off of baking sheets immediately; transfer to wire cooling rack.

Makes approx. 20 cookies

I must say, I’m rather impressed with this recipe considering I came up with on a whim! :shock: They taste fantastic!! They have a brownie-like consistency and, actually, if you put the mixture in a brownie pan, you could probably bake them as brownies instead, lol. It’s hard to believe that they are gluten AND grain-free. Amazing! Nuts would be a great addition to them. Yum!

Have you been bitten by the baking bug lately? What have you baked? Share your recipes! :)
