Grain free, Egg Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

We have many friends with food allergies. We were looking for a good dessert recipe that we could share at potlucks that was gluten free, egg free and dairy free. These are simple cookies to make and they taste great!

Biscotti

I was looking for a good biscotti recipe and my friend, Cheri, had the perfect one for me.  This is super easy to make with many variations.  The cookies store well for a few weeks too.  

If desired, these cookies are firm enough to dunk in chocolate.

Chocolate Chip Marshmallows

We enjoy learning new recipes every winter.  Adrian decided that marshmallows sounded good to try this year.   He attempted them himself and discovered they were a lot easier to make than he thought.

We used mini chocolate chips, but most of them melted.  The next time we make these, we plan to omit the chocolate chips, but cut the squares larger and dunk them in the chocolate.

These taste great alone, but are also wonderful in hot chocolate!

Old Fashioned Saltine Cracker Toffee

Andrea loves Saltine crackers.  She was very happy to discover this easy candy recipe that uses the crackers to add a nice crunch.

These double easily, but Andrea recommends not making more than you want for the day because they are very addictive and you will easily eat more than you plan. 

Chocolate Hazelnut Butter

We found hazelnuts on a very good sale and we wanted to make something like “Nutella”.   Researching ideas, we discovered how easy it was to make our own.

This recipe is slightly crunchy since the coconut sugar does not dissolve well.  We have tried warming up the coconut oil and mixing them before adding to the hazelnuts and that helps some.

Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Brownies

Andrea wanted a less sweet grain free brownie.  It is slightly crumbly and a little dry, but goes wonderfully with ice cream or whipped cream.

If you want it sweeter, replace part or all of the unsweetened chocolate with semi sweet baking chocolate.
