GFCF Magic! Chocolate Cookies to Die For.
I'm too lazy to post a photo - so just picture small, round chocolate cookies. About 100 of them (oops, crunch, make that 99.)
My girls eat a gluten free/casein free diet. That means no wheat/no dairy. No oreos... It's a sad existence. And an expensive one. GFCF foods are damn pricey. I'm constantly trying to find ways to make foods we like less expensively than the store bought version. I love to bake and cook - so it's kind of fun. And since Bella has had a bee the size of Godzilla in her bonnet for weeks and is ONLY happy sitting on the kitchen counter, I've had plenty of baking time.
Today I took a bag of Namaste brand chocolate cake mix and turned it into cookies. Crunchy, delicious cookies. Here's the recipe:
1 bag of Namaste chocolate cake GFCFSFnutfreewhatthehellisactuallyinthebag mix
3/4 cup coconut oil (melt it, coconut oil is high in healthy mid chain fats)
1/4 cup flax seeds
1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill unsweetened unsulphured, no sulfit coconut
2 large eggs
Water, only to moisten as needed to dough consistency
Mix everything with a hand or stand mixer. Roll into tiny balls - just larger than a marble - for 'Nilla wafer size - bigger balls for larger size cookies.
Place on parchment paper on cookie sheet.
Bake at 350. 10 minutes for small balls. 13 minutes for larger.
To make "crinkle cookies" roll the balls in powdered sugar (assuming you can tolerate corn) before baking.
Makes over 100 small cookies. Enjoy!
