Chocolate Cookies!

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

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!

    • You can always check to see how long the lab order lasts, if you'd like to continue eating gluten longer.
    • Might be something else in there, perhaps he ate something else with gluten, something was mixed in the chips, the chips were flavored or in a snack mix with pretzels. I get that way with gluten, but the last 2 times the gut issues render me unable to argue like that but I do go Mr. Hyde like =. Seems to be linked to my mental confusion that arises when I eat gluten the fog and looping of thoughts causes extreme anger and makes it where I can not connect things and think rationally leading to anger, outburst, random acts, and punching and breaking things out of frustration.
    • I hate to say it and be Mr. Negative ass here. But I had this exact same thought about having kids, I do not wish any kids I have to have my AI issues, and decided I would wait a few decades if need be for the new gene editing things they are working on so we can have them changed. Call me crazy.
    • Unsure but I would say wheat, when making that kind of soup you normally use wheat base flour as a thickening agent when preparing the soup. Often formed into a roux with the meat juices after cooking the meat and before adding the rest. Yeah I have issues with the pick up thing too, never accidentally ordered but I have to call them after every order to make sure they know it is me (manager knows me) and they do not put seasonings or sauces on stuff.   It is one of two restaurants in town I trust, but there are only two sides they do that are safe. I bring my own sauce, and main meal order the sides and a drink and go there to fee like a normal human sometimes. lol On a cooking note you can make your own using another flour, a deep nutty flavor like sorghum works great with this or garbanzo for the roux. You can also go and apply another technique where you take some roma tomato chop them up and stir them simmering with a bit crushing them with the ladle in the ban and it will thicken in to a roux like consistency. I find this last method pairs well with a cooking wine to deglaze and add brightness when finishing and can be used for flavorful soup bases or gravies.
    • Hello.  I was wondering what flavor the potato chips were.  Some flavors have dairy in them, like sour cream and onion, or ranch, or cheese.   Sometimes people with Celiac Disease develop an intolerance, or even an allergy, to dairy which can affect behavior, too. Some chips have flavor enhancers akin to MSG that might trigger a reaction.   Potato chips are processed with sulfites to prevent them from discoloration.  Some Celiacs develop a sensitivity to Sulfites in the diet.   And some Celiacs find it helpful to remove nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers) from their diets. Every one is different and reacts differently their own triggers.   I agree with Kareng.  You need to talk to your son.  I bet he feels embarrassed by his behavior, and is perhaps scared of not being able to control himself.  Your reassurance that he has your support can be invaluable.   You and your son might want to figure out together a plan of action if the situation arises again.  Help him learn to recognize when he's reacting and help him get through it.  Skipping rope to burn off the extra energy, puzzle books to focus the mind, soft lights and music, writing in a journal or coloring, or a clock ticking are things that may help.  But your love and support will be most important. Hope this helps.  Be encouraged.
