2 cups flax seed meal
1 Tbls baking powder
1 tsp salt
1-2 Tbls sugar equivalent
5 beaten eggs
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup oil

Preheat oven to 350 degres and prepare a 10x15 baking pan with oiled parchment paper.

Mix dry ingredients using whisk. Add wet ingredients and mix well. Spread batter evenly on pan and then let sit a couple of minutes to thicken up.

Bake for about 20 minuts (until it springs back when you touch it). Yields 12 slices

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
