- 1 cup gluten free dairy free chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped toasted walnuts, optional
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Mix bean flour blend, xanthan or guar gum, 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, if using.
- 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.
- ***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.
