Happy Daddy’s Day!

This is the big treat for the 3 dads we have at our house today:  my husband, his dad, and my dad.  We love you guys!  Thanks for all you do!  We are a pretty lucky family!


Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 cup organic palm oil shortening

1 1/4 cup brown sugar or sucanate

2 eggs

1 Tbsp GF vanilla 

2 1/4 cups bean flour blend

1 1/4 tsp xanthan gum

3/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup GFCF chocolate chips

1 cup chopped toasted walnuts (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 F. 


Mix bean flour blend, xanthan, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl and whisk well.

Cream together palm oil and brown sugar in another bowl. Add eggs one at a time, blending well after each addition.  Add vanilla; beat until smooth.


Add dry ingredients to mixing bowl; mix well. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.


Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake for 8-10 minutes.  Allow to cool on pan for a couple of minutes before removing cookies from cookie sheet to a wire rack to cool.

Makes about 30 cookies.   


If you would like to make giant cookies like in the photo, put dough in a 1/4 cup measure.  Level dough.  Put on pan and slightly flatten.  I put 4 on a baking sheet and bake for 15 min on convection.
