Gluten-Free Chocolate Bar Cookies (An Experiment)

 

Yesterday I mentioned that I was trying something different. I love Elana Amsterdam‘s recipe for gluten-free chocolate chip cookies, only I make it with coconut oil instead of grapeseed oil and maple syrup (the good stuff!) in lieu of agave because I hate agave. But everything else is the same, unless I sub out a handful of the almond flour for coconut flour. This makes more of a dense, soft cookie that doesn’t spread when baked.

I’m the kind of person who usually wants something sweet after dinner, and chocolate should be involved somehow. When I don’t have a healthier alternative, I eat junk. I decided to stop buying junk earlier this year, so I make this recipe all the time.

While eating these cookies, I get ideas. Such as, what would they be like as a crust? Could I make them bigger and really thin, then shape/roll them like brandy snaps? How would they do sandwiched together with chocolate ganache or some other kind of filling? And so on.

Instead of just making more chocolate chip cookies, yesterday I decided to see if I could bake the dough as one big rectangle and make bar cookies out of it. Read More »

A Beginner’s Guide to Gluten-free Baking: Easy Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Chocolate_Chunk_Cookies_lizschauThese chocolate chunk cookies are so simple to make and decidedly less involved than many gluten-free baking recipes. They bake up thin, crispy, and perfectly chewy. These cookies contain no flour or starches, which means they are lower in carbohydrates and, since they are made with cashew butter, are loaded with protein. And, should you choose to use dark chocolate, they’re also dairy-free. As always, be vigilant and check labels — especially when purchasing chocolate, as some contain wheat and gluten.
