Gluten Free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies/Bars (W/ Mint Chips)

This recipe is Seriously NOT for someone with a Chocolate Addiction.  It is Very Hard to stop at just one cookie!

I found the recipe on Suite by Alicia King.

Gluten Free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies/Bars

1 cup butter (softened)

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 1/4  cups Gluten Free all purpose flour

2 teaspoons xanthan gum

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1 cup (white or mint or butterscotch) chips

1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 375F.

Beat butter until fluffy, add white and brown sugars and mix well.  Add eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine flour, xanthan gum, cocoa, baking soda and salt.  Gradually blend with creamed butter/sugar/egg mixture.  Gently stir in chips and nuts.

A note for finger licking bakers: Don’t try this batter raw. These ingredients taste yummy after baking!

Drop by teaspoonful's onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 9-11 minutes.

Yield: 70 Cookies

Gluten Free Beans and Rice

This is one of the first recipes that I made up when I started eating Gluten Free.  I needed something that I could take to a pot-luck lunch with friends and this turned out to be a yummy hit!

Gluten Free Beans and Rice

1 Can Black Beans (or any of your choice, rinsed)

2 1/2 Cups Cooked Brown Rice

5-6 Tablespoons 505 Southwestern All Natural Green Chile Sauce (I purchased it at Costco.)

1/2 can (small can) Olives

1/8 cup Coconut Milk (or Sour Cream) I used Coconut Milk from a leftover meal. I used it as a Creamer.

2 Cups of Shredded Cheese

Combined the first five ingredients in a small baking dish along with half of the cheese.  Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top of the bean mixture.  Cover with tin foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes.  This recipe can be microwaved. 

Serve with Chips (I used Blue Corn. Everyone thought that was neat.)
