photo by Yankiwi
- Ready In:
- 2 cups brown rice flour, mix*
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda, gluten-free
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup chocolate chips
- 1⁄2 cup raisins
- 1⁄2 cup walnuts, chopped
- 1⁄2 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 1⁄2 cup canola oil
- 1 large egg
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄2 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄2 tablespoon water
- Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C (375 degrees F).
- Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl. (Use a stand mixer if available.).
- Mix the oil, egg and sugars until pale and creamy looking. Add the vanilla and water.
- Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until thoroughly combined. If the chocolate chips fall out of the dough, add a little more water.
- Using two spoons, drop small walnut sized piles of the mixture onto Teflon or baking-paper-lined oven sheets, leaving about 4–5cm between each to allow spreading as they cook.
- Place, one tray at a time, in the middle of the oven and bake for 10–11 minutes until not quite golden brown. Be careful not to overcook, they are still tasty but crumbly.
- Cool on baking tray for a few minutes, then on racks until completely cool before transferring to an airtight container for storage. They keep well for a few days, otherwise store in the freezer.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I am a semi-retired graphic designer and American ex-pat living on 2.5 acres on a beautiful river in the country. Now that I am semi-retired (and my husband is retired) we have time and no money so we are baking everything from scratch and have started a vegetable garden. I don't bother with cookbooks much now that I've found Recipezaar. Hardly a day goes by that I don't make something from the Zaar and my husband often asks "what are we going to make today". Mid-way through 2009 my husband found out he had a gluten allergy so we've been experimenting and tweaking gluten-free recipes with mostly great results. We go out with a walking group every second week, there is so much beautiful scenery on New Zealand's West Coast.
