welcome to the 21 acres blog
I was asked by the 21 Acres kitchen team to test out their new gluten-free chocolate chip cookie mix that they just started selling in the market and let them know what I thought. I was a little apprehensive since the assumption with gluten-free baking is that it simply is….just not the same. However, these cookies were delicious and absolutely scrumptious, which made it very hard to not eat just one!
I made sure to have both my husband try them, as well as our neighbor so that I could get a well-rounded opinion on them. The opinion was unanimous. They were amazing. My neighbor was surprised that they were gluten-free, since she usually thought gluten-free items are dry and have a bad texture. However, she thought these cookies tasted like a traditional chocolate chip cookie. The only critique my husband had was that the garbanzo bean flour added a different flavor. Not necessarily a bad flavor but unique, in a good way. I loved that not only did they taste good but they also had a great chewy and soft texture, which is what I like in a good chocolate chip cookie.
The pre-made mix is made up of gluten-free flour (garbanzo bean flour, oat flour, millet flour and potato flour), sugar, chocolate chips, baking soda and salt.
The benefits of choosing to make this gluten-free mix are, that not only is it high in protein but it also is high in nutrients.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the package ingredients with
8 Tbls butter
2 Tbls milk
1 Tbls vanilla
let the mixture rest for 30 minutes. Bake for 12-14 mins rotating once. Transfer to wire to cool.
Makes about 24 cookies.
When you get a chance, pick up this awesome product from the market and bake up a wonderful batch of cookies to share with your loved ones!
