Chocolate Chip Ginger Cookies (Gluten-Free)

This recipe comes to us from Ellen in Oregon.

Mix in a bowl with a wire whisk:

1 cup white rice flour
¼ cup sorghum flour (or any other gluten-free flour you like)
¼ cup rice protein powder or ¼ cup any other gluten-free flour
½ to 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
¾ teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
¼ teaspoon ground cardamom, or to taste
¼ to ½ teaspoon salt

In a mixer beat:

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened, or 1 cup oil (I like safflower) or for a lower fat version:
½ cup oil + ½ cup baby food pears (I use a 4 oz. jar of organic pears)
1 cup brown sugar
1 large egg or 2 egg whites

Beat in flour mixture, then when well combined add:
1/3 to ½ cup crystallized ginger, chopped fine
1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips
Optional: Chopped nuts and raisins

Drop dough by rounded teaspoons (I used a tablespoon) onto a Teflon or coated pan, or butter yours and bake in preheated oven at 350F for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden (approximately 18 minutes). Cool on baking sheet 1 minute, and then transfer to racks to cool completely.

Extra notes: The rice protein powder I use is from NutriBiotic and is labeled vegetarian brown rice. The rice protein powder tastes great in baking, but terrible as a blender drink. It also adds a nice consistency to the finished baked goods. Other than the rice protein powder, I only use white rice flour for baking because the result is more predictable and tastes better than brown rice flour, even though I am aware that brown rice is more nutritious - but give me a break - I am making cookies and sweet treats after all. . The oil + baby food pears (it could also be applesauce) takes the place of 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter. The baby food pears, produced better results than the applesauce. I cannot taste the pears at all, just the flavors of the spices. When I have used applesauce, the taste of the apples always came through. I use baby food pears + oil in all my baking.

check out CoQ10, not related to celiac (as far as I know) but for balance issues.

remind your hubby, "if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody gonna be happy."

Thank you for all your help with this. I was also wondering if I could ask and hope you don't mind, will they be able to tell Celiac on the camera or will it be down to the biopsies they take? My endoscopy is on the 9th, and I am worried about not having enough gluten to show.

Vegetarian here too, celiac really makes it tough as all the Quorn meat replacement products bar the odd one or two are out Then there's all the scare sites saying only paleo type diets will repair your insides but guess what they're all heavily meat / fish based. @Ennis_TX has some good ideas for meals

Wow guys just read all the replies Thankyou all so much!!! There are so many things you've all said that has triggered a light bulb in my little head! The glasses may not be clean!! I will put this to a test. One night I'll stick to bottles of cider (double checked are gluten-free) another I'll try the Gin or William chase vodka if I can find it! And see the effects. if I loose many days due to these not working I'll see a practitioner and see what the deal is! Before I was diagnosed at Coeliac... I went to a herbalist who did a test and said corn is funny on my body!!! But then 18months later (when I became incontinant and lost a lot of weight) my bloods came back positive (after begging the docs and telling them it wasn't IBS) i don't tend to snack at bars on food but I must admit I never thought it could be the way it's served!! The humour and information has made me feel so much better thanks all xxx
