Gluten Free, Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

white bean chocolate chip cookies

This Saturday, I was CRAVING some cookies! I've been wanting to try the whole "chickpea" cookie thing because the pictures of them are just awesome, but I really can't stand the smell of garbanzo bean flour and I've also read that you can't eat the chickpea cookies cold. The gluten free flourless chocolate cupcakes I made in another post came out really well, and not having a bunch of flour makes assembly super easy. These came out great - they were good as cookie dough, hot out of the oven … [Read more...]

Raspberries and chocolate were made for each other. I was actually unpacking my kitchen and spilled a bunch of cacao nibs on the counter - right next to the raspberries I had just gotten.

I was completely entranced with how the sweetness of the raspberries … [Read more...]

I was baking cookies by myself before I was 10. Not just any cookies though - I was fixated on baking chocolate chip cookies. I had carefully watched my mother put my favorite recipe together since I was old enough to eat a cookie, and realized the only way I was going to be able to eat as many chocolate chips and cookie dough as I wanted was if I was in charge of making the cookies. :) We grew up in a home where Mom shopped at the co-op. We had a compost and a garden, and drank mineral … [Read more...]
