Chocolate Chocolate Cookies with Quinoa and Banana Flour

Chocolate Chocolate Cookies 4

I created this new cookie recipe to be nut free, gluten free, dairy free and gum free and it uses just two flours, Quinoa and Banana. These two combined I find make a nice cookie.

These cookies taste chocolately delicious, and are sweetened with natural maple sugar.

I usually freeze them after I make them because,  1. It keeps them fresh longer and 2. It helps resist temptation to eat too many at once. But, I have to say, they are good right out of the freezer, so that doesn’t always work well. 🙂

This recipe makes a dozen cookies. I don’t think there is ever a time of year when chocolate isn’t on the list of cookie flavor favorites. But, they are especially cozy when the weather gets cooler and you can grab a hot cup of something to go with them curled up with a blanket and a good book.

Here’s the recipe.

Chocolate Chocolate Cookies with Quinoa and Banana Flour

1/4 Cup of Banana Flour

1/4 Cup of Quinoa Flour

1/4 Cup of Cacao Powder

1/4 Cup of Olive Oil

1 Egg

1/4 Cup of Maple Sugar

1/3 Cup of Chocolate Chips

1/4 Teaspoon of Baking Soda

1/8 Teaspoon of Sea Salt

1/2 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

In a medium bowl, beat the olive oil and maple sugar together. Add the egg and beat for one minute. Add the quinoa flour, banana flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt and vanilla and beat until creamy. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Scoop onto a parchment lined cookie sheet using a tablespoon cookie measure. Flatten the cookies with damp fingers. Bake in your preheated oven for 10 – 11 minutes. Remove from the oven, and cool on the cookie sheet.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

Valentine’s Day is coming up soon, and these are a perfect chocolate indulgence if you looooooove chocolate chip cookie dough or chocolate chip cookies like me! They are enrobed in their own little portion size packages of dark chocolate. The recipe is egg free, so no need to be concerned about eating raw egg. They are also free of dairy, nuts, and gluten!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites Dairy Free, Nut Free

You can package these in a pretty little container for gift giving, store them in the freezer, refrigerator or at room temperature. I like them cold. It just depends on how firm you want them. They will be quite firm in the freezer, less firm in the refrigerator and have a soft interior at room temperature.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls

Ingredients for Cookie Dough:

1/3 Cup of Coconut Flour (scooped)

1/4 Cup of Avocado Oil

2 Tablespoons of Maple Syrup

1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract

1 Tablespoon of Ground Flax

1 Tablespoon of Grass Fed Gelatin

1 Teaspoon of Fresh Lemon Juice

1/4 Teaspoon of Baking Soda

1/4 Teaspoon of Sea Salt

1/3 Cup of Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips

Directions: Sift together the Coconut Flour, Flax, Gelatin, Baking Soda and Sea Salt. In a separate bowl whisk together the Avocado Oil, Maple Syrup, Vanilla and Lemon Juice. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry, and mix with a hand held electric mixer until your dough is well combined. Stir in the Mini Chocolate Chips.

With a tablespoon sized cookie scoop, scoop the dough into round balls with flat bottoms onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Place the dough balls in the freezer for at least an hour.

Chocolate Exterior:

1 Cup of Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Chips

When you are ready to dip the balls in chocolate, melt the chocolate chips over simmering water in a double broiler stirring constantly until all the chips are melted. (I make my own by taking a small saucepan and filling it with an inch of water and putting the chocolate chips into a metal mixing bowl that will fit on top of the saucepan and not touch the water.)

When the chocolate is smooth, dip each ball, one at a time, into the melted chocolate with two forks, coating it quickly. Then, place it back on the parchment lined cookie sheet.

Refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about half an hour.
