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!

    • I would not eat there either for many reasons listed already. But what is wrong with yeast?
    • Hi,  I just wanted to add some insight to my question on the test results.  I am 58 experiencing stress fractors to the foot without any extra activity.  I have osteoporosis and the thought process of the doctors is that I have another cause besides age for the osteoporosis.  The foot is not healing after 11 weeks in a boot.  Ortho sent me to Endo.  Endo did blood test.  Hormones normal and received the below results on Celiac.  I have had osteoarthritis since 21, Was diagnosised at 29 as being allergic to wheat, symptom was I lost my voice after having my first child.  Had my second at 32 and magic I could eat wheat again and not lose my voice.  Last year I was tested autoimmune because of lung issues; MAC and bronchiaestasis.  IGA was high then but no further testing.  I do not have digestion issues except lactose intolerant.  I do have low values on vitamin D. I do not go back to Endo until 2 weeks from now.  My sister is fighting her own issues which is pointing to autoimmune but drs. have figured her out yet.  My mom as MS and her mom died of ALS, Dad's side had Lupus.  Any thoughts?
    • Sometimes this happens, odd as it might be, you have to be eating gluten for the test first off daily. We call it a gluten challenge. Second some people due test negative on the blood test but can have celiac which is why we consider the endoscope and biopsy the golden standard. Also the gluten test back when you had it done previously was much less accurate then it is now days or at least it seems.  Do you have your numbers? We have had many cases where the doctor said it was negative...and the idiot could obviously not read the test cause when member posted their lab forms we can see it obviously positive. What ever the case we know what the issue is now and your on your way to getting better. Unlike most AI disease we know the cure and fix for celiac is a strict gluten free diet. So you can now begin you road to healing......and yeah I know that feeling of finding out the nerve issues....sadly nerve damage is VERY slow to heal unlike gut damage. But it has it's odd messed up benefits, I have most coordination back but it comes and goes in waves. Funny thing, I can grab stuff out of the oven or burn myself and the reaction to it delayed or non existent pain wise. So they do not bother me. I can cut my hand and go "oh look I should super glue that back together" without the pain, I just logically deal with it and do not have much panic or pain unless it is VERY deep.
    • This has been my life for the past three years! Oh man! I have had every muscle and nerve test known to man and...nothing. The doctors finally stopped trying and just referred me for cognitive behavior therapy.  I'm still confused about the negative blood test though?
    • Thank you @Megamaniac - I don't hear about chest tightness as a symptom of being glutened, so it's good to hear of someone else. My current symptoms aren't bad, just annoying. It's hard to tell if it's anxiety tightening my chest, or something else. But since it's only been happening since I ate that damn tortilla, my guess is it's gluten-related. My doctor made me have an echocardiogram and stress test to rule out cardiac issues before he would do the endoscopy (this was a couple of years ago). I learned that telling a doctor "my chest tightness gets worse when I walk up a hill" makes everything else grind to a hart until the heart gets checked out!
