Nutty DF GF Chocolate Chip Cookies

I've been playing around with lots of different recipes and finding something that is still somewhat healthy and tastes like a treat too. This recipe might seem a bit more detailed but that's mainly because I just grabbed what I had around and had some fun.

- 1/2 cup brown rice flour
- 1/2 cup quinoa flour
- 3/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/2 hazelnut "flour"
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup agave nectar
- 1/3 - 1/2 cup apple sauce
- 2 bananas
- 2 cups dark chocolate chips
- 1/4 - 1/2 cup DF margarine

Mix all the dry ingredients together. Add the apple sauce, bananas, maple syrup, margarine, vanilla and agave nectar. Once the liquors are incorporated add the cooked quinoa. Then add the chocolate chips.

Heat your oven to 350.

Scoop dough in 1 in balls and place 2cm apart (they will not expand).

Cook 15 - 25 minutes.

Gluten Free Pancakes (That are actually good!)

- 4 eggs
- 3 cups flour blend (1 cup quinoa flour, 1 cup brown rice flour, 1 cup coconut flour)
- 11/4 milk (or almond, coconut etc. any type of your choosing)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoon oil (coconut is preferred)
- 3 teaspoons tapioca flour
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar (or sweetener of choice)

Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl; stir in the milk, vegetable oil, and salt. Whisk in the rice flour until no dry lumps remain. Cover the bowl and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour or in the refrigerator overnight.

Heat a lightly-oiled griddle over medium-high heat.

Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry. Flip and cook until browned on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter.
