Chocolate Cookies!

10 posts in this topic

So I was experimenting in the kitchen today, and I made a new recipe.

What you're going to do is this:

65 grams brown sugar and 5 tablespoons of butter/margarine/substitute. Combine them in a bowl and cream together until nice and smooth. Add one or two egg-whites.

In another bowl, put in 100 - 225 grams of pure, unsweetened REAL cocoa powder. Make sure all the bumps and clumps are out. Then put mixture of butter, eggs and sugar in it. Add 30 or 40 grams of powder sugar. Mix all of this together, and add chocolate-chips, currants, raisins, or whatever you like. When you're mixing it, if it's too dry, add more egg-white or a bit of milk.

Put your oven on gas mark 6/400Farhenheit/204Celsius and bake for 7 to 10 minutes, or until the tops are slightly soft. Or, you can bake them until your preferred consistency.

You can easily substitute these ingredients for alternatives, but there is no flour, baking powder, but it's not healthy either so don't make them often :P

They're SOOOOOOOO rich and CHOCOLATEY! And they're GLUTEN FREE!

I know, you must be thinking I'm absolutely mad, but I wanted to bake SOMETHING and so I just figured this out!

Yes, I love meringue cookies. They don't love me, though. Too much sugar.

I have a killer recipe for blood orange and almond meringue cookies if you want it. Like eating perfume. Hubs told me not to make them again because he couldn't stop.

Orange Meringue Kisses - 3 dozen

Preheat oven to 250 F

4 egg whites

1/2 tsp. cream of tartar

1 cup sugar

1/2 tsp. grated orange rind ( I used blood orange)

1 tsp. orange juice ( I used blood orange)

1 cup finely chopped pecans ( I used almond meal)

Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy. Gradually add sugar. Beat until stiff. Fold in rind, juice and pecans. Drop by the heaping teaspoons onto cookie sheets lined with paper. Bake 45+ minutes.

My notes: Bake til HARD. You want a hard meringue. You don't want them to be soft at all.

I made a chocolate version, omitting orange ingredients above, and adding the ingredients below. It wasn't nearly as good.

1 Tbsp. cocoa

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Thank you SO much! Combo of orange & chocolate is yummy.

Whoa! I didn't combine it! I made two versions - the orange (which had no chocolate), and the chocolate (which had no orange).

I'm going to clarify that up top..,,

No worries. I was thinking of how much I liked a chocolate and orange candy bar & the recipe sounded like it would be good combination. Your recipe sounds delicious as stated. Thanks for posting it.

Yes thank you so much for posting that! I have to try it once I gather the ingredients.

On another note, for my recipe, I've discovered that if you add your preferred amount of cooked quinoa, they come out with a lovely texture and slight tang. You can blend the quinoa, or put it in whole. It's great. The only problem is having to watch it being cooked, as I don't know the length that it would be. It's different for each person.

But that recipe, pricklypear, thank you so much!

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
