Gluten free cinnamon oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies 2015

YUM.

I processed my chocolate chips so that they were in smaller pieces- totally not necessary. I also made these in a larger size cookie than I usually do, I mean seriously, let’s just get real….makes it easier than having to get up go back and back and back for another cookie…am I right?

Preheat oven to 350Âş

Process the oats in a food processor until they are the consistency of coarse flour.

In a small bowl, mix all of the wet ingredients together, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla.

In a separate, larger bowl, place all of the dry ingredients; rolled oats, buzzed oats, raisins, and the chocolate chips. In the same bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Sifting isn’t absolutely necessary but it insures there won’t be clumps of flour or worse, chunks of salt, in the batter.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and with a spatula mix until everything is well incorporated.

Using a 2-ounce ice cream scoop or two spoons, scoop out a generous heaping tablespoon of batter onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Scoop or spoon out onto baking sheet with space in between. Gently flatten out each cookie with the bottom of a dry measure or glass.
Bake for 10 minutes. Turn the pan (s) and continue to bake for another 6 minutes or until crisped around the edges.  Let cool for at 2-3 minutes on the pan and then remove them to a cooling rack.

Gluten Free Double Fudge Walnut Brownies 2015

makes 6 large squares

1/3c GF All Purpose flour, I use Bob’s RedMill

1/3c rolled oats- to be buzzed
1/2c +1T cocoa powder
3/4c sucanat, maple or date sugar
1/4c chocolate chips
1/2c walnuts, chopped and divided
1/4t baking powder
1/4t salt
—-
1/4c maple syrup
1/4c coconut oil, melted
1/4c cooked sweet potato puree*
1t vanilla

Preheat oven to 350Âş

Process the oats in a food processor until they are the consistency of coarse flour.

In a small bowl, mix all of the wet ingredients together, the sweet potato puree*, the maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla.
In a separate, larger bowl, place all of the dry ingredients; sucanat, chocolate chips, and 1/2 of the nuts (if you are using them). In the same bowl, sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Sifting isn’t absolutely necessary but it insures there won’t be clumps of flour or worse, chunks of salt, in the batter.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and with a spatula mix until everything is well incorporated.
Pour into a greased baking pan; sprinkle the remaining nuts on top.
Bake for 15 minutes. Turn the pan and continue to bake for another 3-5 minutes or until done in the center. Let cool for at least 15 minutes before attempting to cut.

*To make sweet potato puree:
Begin by boiling, steaming or roasting one medium size sweet potato, peeled and cut into pieces. When the sweet potatoes are soft, tender and cooked, place them into the food processor, reserving and using any cooking liquid if the blade is unable to move through the puree smoothly. The end result is a beautiful, smooth, orange puree. Of course you could skip this process entirely and buy organic, canned sweet potatoes.

With a dry measuring cup measure the 1/2c of the puree.

Variation
1) Use a teaspoon of peppermint extract in addition to vanilla for a refreshing change. They are delicious!

Put all of the dry ingredients into the food processor, the roasted almonds*, coconut flour, cinnamon and salt and process until a fine meal is achieved. *Be sure that the almonds are completely cooled before processing; otherwise you will end up with a pasty mess.
