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 havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
