Quinoa Chocolate Chip Cookies
(makes 12 cookies)
If you are yearning for a satisfying gluten free cookie made with real butter that tastes as good as a wheat laden one, then this recipe is for you. It’s super quick to make the batter and they bake in under fifteen minutes. Faster than it takes to get in the car and drive to the store.
125g butter, softened
⅓ cup white sugar
⅓ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¾ cup quinoa flour (available in the supermarket)
¾ cup almond flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¾ cup extra dark chocolate chips (I like Guittard)
⅓ cup chopped nuts of choice (pecans, hazelnuts or macadamias work well)
Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, soften the butter in the microwave for 10 seconds if needed.
Whisk to combine the egg, vanilla extract and sugars.
Fold in the flours, baking powder and baking soda.
Add the chocolate chips and chopped nuts.
Using a cookie scoop, scoop balls of mixture and place them 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet.
Place into a preheated oven and bake for about 13 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool on a cookie rack and store in an airtight container.
