Posts Tagged ‘chocolate chip cookies’

The first batch of these amazing cookies is ready in just about 10 minutes, prep time included!  With a liberal portion of chocolate chips and crunchy, caramelized sunflower seeds, they totally surpass the brownie style cookies available on store shelves.  My gluten free flour works wonderfully well. Share these cookies with friends who can eat wheat, and watch them get polished off the plate—so good to serve for kids’ play dates.

super easy cookies


  • 1 1/2 cups “Grandma’s Gluten-Free Flour”  (click on ‘Basics” for the recipe)
  • 1 cup milk / soy milk / water
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 level teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup caramelized sunflower seeds, coarsely crushed. (place in plastic bag / Ziploc bag.  Move rolling pin across a few times, pressing lightly.)


  1. Sift gluten free flour, cocoa and baking soda.
  2. Fold in sugar, and mix well.
  3. Make a well in the dry mixture, and pour in the oil.
  4. Add milk and vanilla, and stir in well with a wooden spoon.
  5. Continue to mix ingredients together, till mixture is smooth and there are no lumps.
  6. Stir in chocolate chips and caramelized sunflower seeds.
  7. Lightly grease a microwave safe dish or tray, or better still, line with parchment paper.
  8. Drop cookie batter by heaped teaspoons, leaving an inch of space on all sides of each unbaked cookie.
  9. Place in microwave oven, and cook for about 1 minute and 45 seconds.  Time varies 10-15 seconds with different microwave ovens.
  10. The cookies will be soft. For a more crusty texture, allow 15 seconds more in the microwave.

Repeat cooking process till batter has been used up.

Let cookies cool completely before storing them in an airtight container.

Actually the first couple of batches will disappear before the last one is done!

To caramelize sunflower seeds

  1. In a saucepan, put together 1/2 cup sunflower seeds and 2 Tablespoons light brown sugar.
  2. Stir on medium heat, till sugar browns, turns a little sticky and coats the seeds.
  3. Turn off heat and allow the seeds to cool.

You can make a larger quantity and store in a bottle / airtight container.

Storing in the fridge ensures a longer shelf life of about 6 months at least.
