Primal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted on May 7, 2012

Grain free cookies made with high protein almond flour, naturally sweetened with honey.

Primal. Paleo. Specific Carbohydrate. GAPS. Call it what you want. I began the grain-free diet in 2001. I have adhered to it religiously ever since. When I began, I followed the Specific Carbohydrate Diet; since then, although I’ve used various sweeteners and oils, I have not veered from grain-free. This is not a fad for me. It’s not even something that really has a name. When I started ... read more →

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted on February 2, 2012

Dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate, all in one gluten free chocolate chip cookie.

I can assure you, this is not a Paleo cookie. It is not even a Primal cookie. It is a special occasion cookie –a wonderful treat to serve at a gluten free Super Bowl party. It also makes a great holiday cookie (think gluten free Valentine’s Day dessert). Lately, everyone who has been over to our house –gluten free or not –has been gorging themselves on ... read more →

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Yacon

Posted on July 15, 2010

So all you agave haters gather round.  These gluten free chocolate chip cookies are completely free of agave, I have used yacon instead.

What is yacon?  It is a perennial root, composed primarily of water and Fructooligosaccharide (FOS). These short chain sugars have a lower caloric value (as they are digested anaerobically) and high fiber content. FOS is a prebiotic that is extremely helpful with digestion. 

I use yacon as my “brown sugar” or “molasses” in my recipes.  For example, in ... read more →

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Grapeseed Flour

Posted on February 12, 2010

These yummy little protein-a-licious cookies are the result of a complimentary sample of Chardonnay Grapeseed Flour that I received from Eric Leber of AprèsVin.  Grapeseed flour?  Yes, you heard it right, grapeseed flour.

While these treats look like they are double chocolate chip cookies, they actually are not.  It is high protein, antioxidant rich grapeseed flour that gives them their nice dark color.  And yes, grapeseed flour comes in different flavors.  This chardonnay grapeseed flour has a buttery taste and graham ... read more →

Cranberry Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted on October 7, 2009

This scrumptious fall twist on the classic chocolate chip cookie is a big hit in my household.  The tart dried cranberries and nutty, roasted goodness of walnuts, along with nutrient dense almond flour turn a plain old chocolate chip cookie into an antioxidant rich, nutritious treat.

Chocolate Chip Cookies Again

Posted on May 13, 2009

The other day, I received this lovely note from one of my favorite readers, CoconutGal.

White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted on January 27, 2008

These gluten-free, egg-free, white chocolate chip cookies are a great dessert for the kids!

My younger son E, did the drawing above. He has been very into his art lately, creating a series (crayon on paper) of skateboarders doing tough jumps.

Yesterday he asked me if he could have his own flickr account (as all cool budding artists do). I thought that was a bit precocious for age seven and told him I would post his art on my flickr account. ... read more →

Chocolate Chip Cookies (Dairy Free/Gluten Free)

Posted on May 30, 2007

This updated classic is one of my favorites.

Update: I’ve created a video to show you how to make these gluten free and vegan chocolate chip cookies.

The other day I received a call from Kelly about a potluck at my children’s school. This superwoman who doubles as first grade room parent and I spoke about taking the “luck” out of potluck.

During our chat, we touched on the significance of children breaking bread together and sharing in the most important part of ... read more →

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted on March 20, 2007

Gluten free, naturally sweetened. Go ahead, try one.

This is one of the first chocolate chip cookie recipes that I created. Two subsequent recipes for gluten free chocolate chip cookies that I now prefer to this one include the vegan chocolate chip cookies on this website, and my all time favorite gluten free, dairy free chocolate chip cookie in The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook.

For those of you that were wondering, I use this website as a journal for the recipes ... read more →
