    Grain and Glueten Free Chocolate Pecan Cookies

    Grain and Glueten Free Chocolate Pecan Cookies



    Grain and Glueten Free Chocolate Pecan Cookies-photo-7-jpg


    Today I tried out a recipe for a gluten-free, grain-free cookie. Instead of regular flour, almond meal or flour is used. This is a very simple recipe with minimal ingredients yet it came out great! The cookie has more of a cake-like consistency and the outside is on the crisp side. Not too sweet either and goes perfect with a glass of milk!

    Ingredients:
    1 1/4 cup Almond Flour/Meal
    1/4 teaspoon Salt
    1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
    1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract (optional)
    1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon (essential!)
    1 large Egg
    1/4 cup Honey
    1/4 cup chopped Pecans
    **Note: I added a few chopped up squares of Ghirardelli 100% baking chocolate to the mixture**

    Stir ALL ingredients together until smooth.
    Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto a really well buttered/greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart from eachother. They really like to stick to the pan, so use parchment paper if you have it. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until desired doneness. Allow to cool before removing from pan. Makes about 9-10 cookies.

    Grain and Glueten Free Chocolate Pecan Cookies



    Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter at room temperature
    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1 large egg
    • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp gluten free baking mix*
    • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


    Instructions

    1. Using a mixer, cream butter and sugars in a large mixing bowl.
    2. Add egg and vanilla and beat again until well combined, scraping sides of bowl as needed.
    3. Add gluten free baking mix in two batches and mix again. It won't be so thick that you can't continue mixing it, but it should appear "doughy."
    4. Stir in chocolate chips, cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4-6 hours until thoroughly chilled. You should be able to roll the dough into balls before baking.
    5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    6. Once chilled, scoop out rounded Tablespoon amounts of dough, roll them into balls and place them 2 inches apart on a baking sheet.
    7. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are just slightly golden brown. Remove from oven and let rest on the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack. Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to several days. Freezer for longer term storage. (They taste just as good the 2nd and 3rd day as they hold their texture/flavor well.)
