Chocolate treats -- a simple cookie

This is an easy everyday cookie recipe. It's chocolate and it you notice, it's really my roll recipe, converted to a drop cookie recipe. That's what makes it so easy. To make life even easier, make 2x, 3x or 4x the recipe and freeze. These freeze nicely. So, here's the recipe. Make up your own name.

1/2 cup chickpea flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/2 cup potato starch
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup carob powder
3 tsp egg replacer powder(Ener-G)
2 tsp xanthan gum
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sea salt
Mix this well. Then add, 1/2 cup canola oil and 1/2 cup water. Add extra water by the tablespoon if too chunky. You want this to be smoother, but not liquidy.
Beat with blender.
Using WET hands, form rough circles and place on ungreased cookie sheet or in muffin tins. Bake at 400 for 12-15 minutes. They will be very soft coming out of the oven but will firm up as they cool.


This is easy.

1.5-2 lbs ground beef
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp Heinz ketchup
1 small onion, cut fine
1/4 cup broth -- homemade gfcf
1/2 cup gfcf bread/roll/cracker, etc.
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp chili powder (optional)
1/2 tsp garlic powder (optional)
1/4 tsp xanthan gum
1 egg, beaten or 1 egg substitute (Ener-G)

Heat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients well. Bake for 30-45 minutes, ensuring meat is thoroughly cooked using a meat thermometer.
