Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Josh, my middle son is preparing to take the Bar Exam in two weeks.  While studying (I assume, more rant on this later) he came across a recipe for gluten-free vegan chocolate chip cookies.  I should ask him if the recipe was under Torts or Constitutional Law.

I will give him credit for discovering this tasty cookie.  I have blogged about other chocolate chip cookies, but this one takes the Tort (okay, that was pretty bad). 

After consuming quite a few cookies my mind began to wonder about the benefits of Congress passing a resolution that only gluten-free product would be allowed and gluten would be banned, much like cigs in all public places.  Would this bill pass or will it struggle much like everything else or should I get off my sugar high?  Could this cookie be the catalyst?  Enacting such a bill would squelch the question “Who let one go?”.

Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup each of white and brown sugar

1/2 cup vegan butter (soft or melted)

1/3 cup hemp milk

2 teaspoons vanilla

3/4 cup brown rice flour

1/3 cup coconut flour

2 tablespoons potato starch

1/2 teaspoon each of baking powder and baking soda

Add chocolate chips and/or walnuts and you can determine how much or how little you would enjoy.

Combine the sugars and butter until well blended then add the milk and vanilla until well combined.  Add the rest of the ingredients except the chips and nuts to the above mix and again, blend well.  Now add the chips and nut and try to distribute them well into the batter.   Preheat the oven to 350F.   I happen to enjoy larger size cookies because we all know that once you bite into one, all the calories evaporate.   Therefore, at your discretion, use however amount of batter you like and bake the cookies on a well-oiled (use coconut oil for a richer flavor) cookie sheet for about 10-15 minutes depending on the size of the cookie and whatever doneness you prefer.

Now back to Josh; why is he surfing the web checking out gluten-free sites when he is not gluten-free (much less vegan)?  Shouldn’t the focus be on the Bar Exam that cost me the equivalent of a mortgage payment?
