The very best gluten free cookie cookie that I have ever made,
that tastes just like a real gluten filled cookie!!
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)
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!!
