Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies – GF

It is such a beautiful day outside. The children are outdoors enjoying the spring sunshine. Though our schedule declares it to be reading time, I think the gorgeous God display in the backyard trumps. So, I went about making a newer version of our favorite gluten free cookie.

Makes 3 big batches – whatever that is 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup organic butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp aluminum free baking soda
  • 1 tsp Real Salt
  • 1 Tb vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 Tb stevia extract (or few pinches of powder, or 1 tsp of green powdered herb)
  • 4 pastured eggs
  • 2 cups sucanat
  • 3 cups sprouted rice flour (I grind the sprouted rice from Azure in my Blendtec)
  • 3 cups almond flour (also from Azure)
  • 1-2 cups hazelnuts, preferably roasted or soaked/dried
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips

Method:

  1. Add each ingredient in the order listed, one at time to the mixer.
  2. Leaving the mixer on low, continue blending each item one at time.
  3. Slowly add the nuts and chocolate chips last.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 for about 10-12 minutes.

Best enjoyed outside with a cold glass of Real, Fresh milk. Have a lovely day!
