That's right...I've jumped on the gluten free band wagon.
Haha...not really. Just thought I'd see what all the fuss is about.
Wondering if I can really feel better without gluten.
I've already discovered that I feel much better without processed white sugar. So I wondered if I could make a good tasting chocolate chip cookie without gluten AND white sugar.
So was I.
I came across a site that offered a DIY "best gluten free flour recipe". I couldn't locate Sweet Rice Flour, but I did find this for $3.99 at Ocean State Job Lots:
If you or someone you love (like a daughter-in-law, for example) is allergic to nuts, then this is NOT a good option because they have a disclaimer that states this is manufactured in a facility that uses tree nuts and soy. :(
Any who....onto the recipe:

I was surprised how much like a 'regular' chocolate chip cookie this tasted like. I only found it to be a little bit grainy in texture.
But the real test is what did the family think?
16 year old daughter said,"Wow, not bad!"
Hubby...well he had more than one so I think it passed his taste buds test.
Unfortunately those are the only 2 left to try my experiments :(
