|Sorry the pictures aren't great. I was more concerned with making |
the cookies and being on time than with staging pretty photos.
For our book club meeting I tried a new recipe. The recipe came from the daughter of a colleague, who made them it foods class. I modified it a little bit to suit my needs. These are probably the best gluten-free dairy-free squares I've made yet!
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 brown sugar, firmly packed
1 cup gluten-free pancake & waffle mix*
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup carob chips
*The original recipe called for gluten-free baking and pancake mix but I couldn't find one without dairy.
Step 1: Beat together eggs, oil, and vanilla.
Step 2: Add in and beat sugar and pancake mix.
Step 3: Stir in coconut and carob chips.
Step 4: Spread batter into a greased 9 x 9 pan.
Step 5: Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes, until the square is set and golden brown.
Step 6: Cool before cutting. This is hard. They smell amazing and I didn't want to wait. If you don't, the cookies crumble.
Also, in looking through my photos I realized I never shared one of my other book club evenings with you. A couple months ago our novel was The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson. It was a quirky, unusual book but I thought it was great. For our meeting I made peanut butter, oatmeal, carob chip cookies. You can find the recipe here.
