The kids and I are going to a playdate tomorrow with their friends Jack (1 year) and their friend Max (8 months, not Taneka and Josh's Max). I am having a playdate with their moms, Megan and Traci. Megan can't have dairy, gluten, or cinnamon, so I adapted a recipe I found to make some yummy treats I can share with everyone. Thank you King Arthur Flour for the inspiration!
Yummy Gluten Free Cookies
1 stick (8 T.) softened margarine, earth balance preferred
1/3 cup brown sugar, unpacked
1 tsp vanilla extract (gluten free!)
1 tsp ground cardamom
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 T. water
Beat these together in a mixing bowl till fluffy and well mixed.
1 cup King Arthur Flour Gluten Free Multi Purpose Flour
3/4 cup oats (check to see if gluten free!)
1/4 cup ground flax
1/4 cup golden flax seeds
1 cup dried blueberries
Mix into first mixture till it makes a cohesive dough. Chill for 1 hour at least, can chill overnight. Preheat oven to 350. Scoop the dough into small balls and flatten slightly. They can be pretty close together on the cookie sheet, as they don't spread or rise much at all. Bake 12 minutes till lightly golden. Cool a few minutes on the baking sheet then cool on a wire rack.
