AWESOME LOW-FAT GLUTEN-FREE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

 

  • Cooking Time: 13 minutes
  • Servings: 14
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • I will refer to the ingredients using the terms 'flour mixture' and 'sugar mixture' in the recipe :).
  • Create these two mixtures in two separate and large bowls.
  • Flour Mixture:
  • 1/2 cup white rice flour
  • 1/2 cup millet flour
  • 1/3 cup tapioca flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Sugar Mixture:
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2-1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 tbsp lowfat milk
  • 3 tbsp melted butter
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

  • Before you start, make sure your oven rack is centered in the middle of the oven.
  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Get 2 bowls, one large, one small.
  • Pour flour mixture into the large bowl.
  • Pour sugar mixture into smaller bowl.
  • Add melted butter, vanilla extract, and egg to sugar mixture. Mix well. Now add the milk. Mix well.
  • Pour the wet sugar mixture into the larger bowl with the flour mixture. Mix with a large spoon.
  • Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick.
  • Serve cookies with medium sized cookie scoop (about a large tablespoon's worth of dough) on a cookie sheet. Don't flatten the cookies, just gently press them so they're not a round ball but not a flat disc either :) (they come out dry if you flatten them too much). Spread cookie drops 1/2 inch apart.
  • Bake for 12-13 minutes at 350, let cool for 7-10 minutes on the baking sheet before removing from baking sheet (or they might break). Remove carefully with spatula. (Now repeat with the remaining dough :).
  • Makes 14 cookies!

Notes

I started a gluten-free diet a few months ago and have been experimenting with coming up with a gluten-free chocolate chip cookie recipe that doesn't call for a stick of butter. I don't have a gallbladder so I can't digest large amounts of fat, but these came out super delish! You'd never guess that they're gluten-free :).
