Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Plate of Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

These Chocolate Chip Cookies are a healthier, gluten free and low glycemic version of a traditional recipe (meaning they won’t mess up the body’s blood sugar level).  The mixture of gluten free flours adds some protein (from the quinoa and chickpea flours), the sweetener is stevia, and there is a relatively small amount of chocolate chips.  Enjoy!

Prep time:  10 minutes

Baking time: 10 – 12 minutes

Yield:  36 cookies

 

Ingredients:

½ cup quinoa flour

½ cup chickpea flour

½ cup coconut flour

½ cup amaranth flour

¾ tsp white stevia powder

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp xanthan gum

½ tsp sea salt

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup coconut milk

½ cup coconut oil, melted (or butter)

2 tsp pure vanilla

½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips

 

Directions:

  • Line 2 cookies sheets with parchment paper (makes cleaning up so easy!)
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Mix flours, stevia powder, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum and sea salt in a large bowl.
  • In a medium bowl mix beaten eggs, coconut milk, coconut oil and vanilla.  Add this to the dry ingredients and mix well.  Mix in the chocolate chips.

These Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies are diabetic-friendly, and are great for special occasions when baking is the preferred treat (such as Christmas time).
