Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

Julie, Your cookies sound delicious! I've been making grain free chocolate chip cookies at least once a week :D I buy one bag for baking, and another one for snacking :lol:

Hi Patti :) I got the recipe from the baking section, very easy and so few ingredients- you could even throw in your chocolate chips if you wanted :lol: . I know you can't have PB, but a couple of people said they used almond butter, cashew butter, etc. and they tasted just as good.

I am going to try them with other nut butters soon.

What is your cookie recipe? If you don't mind sharing....

Boy, I had to reboot my computer twice. It was going schitzoid on me.

Now that I missed the party. :(

I'll change my avatar to what I love (food wise that is). You all know, I've mentioned it thousands of time......enjoy life chocolate chips since I am soy intolerant I don't have anything with soy lecithin either.

Julie,

As I am soy intolerant I have cut out peanut butter. None of us eat it anymore since it is so close to the soybean. I will have to look up that recipe. I saw it but didn't look at it. I figured I'd try almond butter.

Julie,

This is a recipe I came up with--it's based on a wheat-free cookie recipe from Nestle, but I made several changes--

Grain Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mix in bowl until light and creamy: 1/2 cup light brown sugar, 1/2 cup Spectrum Organic Shortening, 1 egg, 1 tsp. vanilla.

Add: 1 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1+ 1/4 cup potato starch, 1 cup chocolate chips.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto baking sheet and bake at 375 for about 8 minutes.

*These come out like little cookie cakes :)

Andrea and Julie,

I plan to try almond butter in the peanut butter cookie recipe. I wonder if anyone's tried it that way yet?

Mmmmm Dagoba chocolate. I love the xocolatl bar and the lavender bar; the roseberry one is good too!

I'm not really feeling too great this morning/afternoon/whatever. Not quite sure why, I had rough time sleeping last night, got around 4 hours....maybe that has something to do with it? So I can't say there's anything I'm Racheling or wanting to Rachel at this moment in time.

Yah, I had an off morning...spent a lot of time in the ladies room...wondering if it was the half dagoba bar before 6:30 a.m. :ph34r: At least I DID get some sleep last night...hoping you feel better soon.

OMGosh, the cookie recipe looks good! I've copied it...also copied a couple from the Peanut butter thread...I think I can handle those...don't look too complicated. I am no Betty Crocker! :lol:

Hmm, since I'm not allowed to Rachel anything but my husband, I'll leave his picture up. :lol:;)

Otherwise I could put up a picture of 1/4 of a donut ... or a cup of coffee ... but I hardly think once a week counts. :( Neither does moderation ....

I think Racheling of spouses is perfectly acceptable. :lol:

am cracking up as I scroll down and read and seeing chocolate/candy bars/bumbles in the avatars..... :lol:

These days, I can Rachel just about anything. :angry: what is up with that? an ENTIRE bag :ph34r: of Archer Farms Potato Crisps the other day (happy to report they're gluten-free), a whole bag of Trader Joe's white cheddar popcorn in two consecutive nights....and of course...the Nuggets - not even allowed to bring those in.....

Vincent - Racheling the raisins is so.....healthy..... :o:lol:

Gotta go to Walmart, my most dreaded place...but, shouldn't be too crowded on Monday...staying away from the halloween candy aisle :o

We are trying to limit the chocolate chip and cookie consumption to the weekends now. Can't afford all the money we've been spending on treats. I really need to get away from the computer and get something done. I need to make bread, should really make my own cookies, etc.

I'd sure miss you guys if I had to leave this computer for too long. :P

oops, sorry Donna. I meant to post the recipe instead of making you search the board :o

This is the one I used:

1 c. Peanut Butter

1 c. Brown Sugar

1 Egg

1 Tsp. Baking Soda

Bake at 350 for 9 minutes (I did 7-8 minutes) They are a little soft when first out of the oven, but set up as they cool.

The first time I made it I threw in a cup of coarsely chopped chocolate bars (didn't have any chocolate chips on hand so I improvised) The second I just made them plain, very good either way. And so easy Donna, you will totally be able to make them. Very forgiving, I made them small (1heaping tbsp balls) and then bigger (2 heaping tbsp flattened out) and they came out fine both ways.

Thanks Patti for your recipe, and look, they include your beloved patato starch :lol: I'm going to try making the PB cookie recipe with almond butter this afternoon so I will let you know how they turn out.

Susie, stay away from the candy aisle, the aisle of tin foiled wrapped little chocolate evils disguised as goodness :lol:

Andrea, that is what I am starting to do, make my own. It's cheaper for one, but also so much better for us since we can leave out a lot of the extra stuff (i.e. the dreaded soy lecithin)

Melannen, sorry you aren't feeling great today, feel better soon :)

I may have to work on cutting down the sugar. That is a lot of sugar! :o

Thanks, feeling marginally better now, I took a power nap and ate some soup. Seemed to help. :)

Andrea--I meant to tell you this earlier, but my oldest son just dropped by :) The recipe I gave before used to call for almost twice the amount of sugar--it's just as good with the smaller amount of brown sugar.
