cousins & cookies

Just made some more gf cookies for the lovely Brit, but might need to make another batch cause they are disappearing 🙂

We’ve been making all sorts of gf muffins and cookies the past few weeks…it’s fun to see which ones the kiddos love. I discovered this afternoon that our Blendtec easily grinds quinoa into a nice fine flour. That was an exciting discovery.

I’ve tried these cookies with garbanzo & tapioca flour, and another batch with quinoa & oat flour. Both turned out deliciously different than typical chocolate chip cookies…both have a delightful coconut taste to them.

gluten-free chocolate chip cookies

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup coconut oil
3/4 cup raw sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 – 1 tsp nutmeg (you can also use cinnamon)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups quinoa flour
1 1/4 cups oat flour (the first batch had 2 cups garbanzo flour & 3/4 cup tapioca flour)
2 cups chocolate chips

Bake cookies on greased pan (coconut or olive oil are our favs) at 375 degrees for 9 minutes

makes about 3 dozen cookies

Do you have gluten-free secrets you can share?  When you’re tired of wheat flour…what do you use?  Here’s to cousins, family and loved ones! xo ~ katrina

  1. I love to use quinoa flour a lot too! These cookies sound amazing & ooh so tasty! 🙂
    Yum Yum Yum! oat flour is only GF if you use gf oats!

  2. So true Sophie :), it has to say gf on the package. Do you grind your quinoa flour in your vitamix or do you buy it as flour?
