Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie/Cake (for one)

I've found several chocolate chip cookie-for-one recipes on Pinterest, but they call for either  traditional grain-based flour, or they're made using all almond flour (which I don't care for the taste of that much). I've been playing around with my various grain-free flours and think I've come up with a winner! My husband and my boys all think this recipe is amazing as well, and they're chocolate chip cookie "specialists"!  Regardless of if you're eating grain-free or not, give this recipe a try!

(and yes, a glass of cold milk goes quite nicely with a warm bowl of cookie-cake!)

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp unsalted Irish butter (room temp. or slightly melted)
  • 2 Tbsp organic brown sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp Madagascar vanilla (trust me... use the real stuff!)
  • 5 Tbsp hazelnut flour
  • 3 Tbsp quinoa flour
  • 1 Tbsp almond flour
  • 2 Tbsp dark chocolate chips
  • pinch of fine ground kosher salt

Directions:

Combine first four ingredients in a small ramekin or microwave safe mug/dish/etc until well combined. Add the 3 flours (which basically equals a bit more than 1/4 C) and salt mixing well. Fold in your chocolate chips. Cook in the microwave for 60 - 90 seconds, or until you see the "cookie" edges have pulled away from the sides of the dish. Cool a bit and enjoy!

I've discovered Bob's Red Mill offers just about every kind of flour known to man, which I buy at WholeFoods. If you can't find them in one of your local markets, you can purchase online. Tell me if you give this a try. I'd love to know what you think!

Cheers!
