An extension of www.allnaturalmomof4.com. Posting Feingold and GFCF recipes. I have one son who does Feingold only, and my other 3 kids and I do GFCF (gluten and dairy free). We also avoid eggs (for one), peanuts, soy, and corn syrup as well. Check out my new e-book, "All Natural Mom's Guide to the Feingold Diet, A Natural Approach to ADHD" available now on Amazon!

Chocolate Chip Quinoa Cookies
This is a gluten and dairy
free recipe. These can also be made egg free.
cups quinoa flakes (from the health food store or Whole Foods)
cups GF all purpose flour (I use Namaste’s Perfect Flour blend)
tsp baking soda (I use Bob’s Red Mill Aluminum Free)
tsp xanthan gum
cup shortening (I use Spectrum or Tropical Traditions Palm Oil)
cup Sucanet or brown sugar firmly packed (I used Domino light brown sugar)
cup granulated sugar (I use organic from Costco.)
large eggs (or I used 1/3 cup carbonated water/club soda)
oven to 375 degrees.Finely grind quinoa
flakes in a processor (I used my food processor.It didn’t grind it up very well though).Add GF flour mix, baking soda, xanthan gum
and salt and blend for 5 seconds.
shortening and both sugars in a large bowl until well blended.Beat in eggs and vanilla.Mix in dry ingredients.Mix in chocolate chips.
dough into balls using a cookie scooper, or approximately 2 TB’s, and place
onto an ungreased baking sheet.I like
to use parchment paper (not the same as wax paper).Flatten the cookies slightly.
until the edges are golden brown, about 12 minutes.Cool on sheets for 5 minutes then transfer to
racks and cool completely.Makes 4 dozen
cookies.(I got about 60 cookies).Freeze the cookies in a large zip lock bag
after they cool.
quinoa flakes give these an oatmeal kind of taste.Quinoa is high in protein.
I got this recipe from
Sueson Vess’ Special Eats cookbook.
