Tastes Just Like Gluten Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies!




The very best gluten free cookie cookie that I have ever made, 
that tastes just like a real gluten filled cookie!!
Seriously! 
It was a big hit, even with the non-gluten eating folks around here.


As I have stated before, when I am making homemade gf goodies,  I prefer to use ingredients without the use of starchy fillers to replace the flour portion of the cookie. I also LOVE almond flour, but like to use it in small doses for the sake of taste AND for the sake of cost effectiveness!

Here it is:

Tonya's Tastes Just Like Gluten Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies!
1 cup butter unsalted softened
3/4 c granulated sugar (just under)
3/4 c  packed brown sugar (just under)
1 egg
2 1/4 c flour mixture see below
1 1/2 c buckwheat flour ( I use fresh ground from hulless berries)
1/2 c almond flour 
1/4 c brown rice flour

2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2/3 bag of chocolate chips (use however many you want)
1 cup of chopped nuts (optional)

Heat oven to 375 degrees. 
Bake for 10-12 minutes, which will vary according to you oven, 
however, watch for some browning around the edge, then after
removing from oven, let sit for 2-3 minutes, then 
transfer to a cooling rack.

These were soooo good.
Buckwheat is my new favorite gluten free replacement option. It is sooo good for you and very affordable. I love the combo of almond flour, which is a bit pricey for our budget, so we will often use that in combination with buckwheat, which adds to taste and nutrition, but uses less at a time.

Hope you enjoy our recipe creations!!

Why MAGNANIMOUS?

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
