  • One recipe under our belts with this flour. The cookies we made turned out perfectly. They would easily pass for regular cookies. So far so good, but I would like to test out a savory recipe next.

It was our wedding anniversary this week. I failed to actually make a nice dinner, but I succeeded in making a good dessert for the house. I had a little help from our son. Anytime he gets to use the mixer he is very willing to help.

GFTT Cookies-4Last week at Costco I picked up a 5lb bag of Gluten Free flour. It was Premium Gold Flax and Whole Grain All Purpose.  It was about $13 for the bag. That seemed like a pretty good price. The flour was a mix of brown rice, flaxseed, quinoa, buckwheat and amaranth. I have to admit,  I very rarely use these alt flours in recipes. (with the exception of rice flour)  I was not sure what I would make first, so I turned to the Premium Gold’s website for inspiration on what to make.

My son liked the look of this recipe: http://www.premiumgoldflax.com/recipe_lunchboxcookies.phpLunchbox Special Cookie

Lunch Box Cookies

Ingredients:

gluten free lunchbox cookies½ cup gluten free rolled oats, regular or quick cooking
2 ¼ cups Premium Gold® Gluten Free Flax & Ancient Grains All-Purpose Flour
1 ½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. cinnamon
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
¾ cup firmly packed brown sugar
¾ cup granulated sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 eggs
3 cups gluten free semisweet chocolate chips
1 ½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
2 Tbsp. milk of choice, as needed to thin the batter if too thickDirections:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.Place oats in blender or food processor and process until finely ground.
In medium bowl, mix together ground oats, flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.

In large bowl, cream together butter, sugars, vanilla and lemon juice with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat until well blended. Gradually add the flour mixture into egg mixture and mix well.
Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.

Using ¼ cup dough for each cookie, scoop round balls with an ice cream scoop and place 2 ½ inches apart on prepared cookie sheets.

Bake cookies 16-18 minutes, until just lightly browned. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
To keep the cookies soft and chewy, store in a sealed container. (Recipe credit of Premium Gold)GFTT Cookies-1

We made just one alteration to the recipe. It called for 3 cups of chocolate chips. We did a variety to chips, Semi Sweet, Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate. All totaling  3 cups. Don’t worry, these cookies are just for us, so I was not too concerned with my son sticking his entire face into the measuring cup of chocolate.

Outside of that small change we made the cookies as directed. They were big! GFTT Cookies-5 GFTT Cookies-6 GFTT Cookies-7

Well, the cookies turned out great.  At first I was unsure if I liked the cinnamon in the recipe, but it does work. The cookies are large. Crisp on the edges and chewy on the inside. My husband loved them and said 5 stars!!

Happy Anniversary to us. In honor of our Elvis wedding in Las Vegas, we ate the cookies off our favorite Elvis plate. :)
