Print Friendly 

Description:
These are so delicious no one will ever know the difference. They are easy to make and flatten out all on their own. I use vegetable shortening. You can substitute 2c Gluten Free Baking Mix for the individual flours.

Ingredients:
3/4 c shortening 2 tsp baking soda
1 c sugar 2 tsp xanthan gum
1 egg 1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 c molasses 1 tsp ground ginger
1 3/4 c sorghum flour 1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 c chickpea flour Sugar to coat cookie
2 T sweet rice flour dough balls



Directions:
Cream shortening and sugar. Add egg and molasses. Mix thoroughly. Stir together sorghum flour, chickpea flour, sweet rice flour, soda, cinnamon, ginger and cloves. Stir into the creamed mixture. Refrigerate until firm. About 1 hour. Form dough into 1 1/2 inch balls, roll in white sugar. Place on a parchment lined or well greases cookie sheet. Bake in preheated 350° oven for 12-15 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Eat fresh or freeze.
Makes 4 dozen small cookies or 3 dozen medium size cookies.

For a change of pace omit the ground ginger and use 2 tsp of cinnamon.

Make the dough balls smaller for more cookies.

Wellness Tip
VITAMIN D--BEST SOURCES
Vitamin D aids in the absorption of dietary calcium, which is essential for bone health. Very few foods naturally contain vitamin D. The major dietary sources of vitamin D in the U.S. are fortified products such as milk, some brands of orange juice and ready-to-eat cereals. The body also makes it after exposure to sunlight. If you feel you might not be getting enough vitamin D, or if you are thinking of taking a supplement, consult your physician or a dietitian.

Recipe
Lighter Bran Muffins
Category: Desserts
Description: Compared to the buttery, icing-piped white scones and tartlets in the pastry case, the bran muffin always seems like the obvious choice for the hungry healthy-breakfast browser. The bran adds a good bit of fiber and a little protein, too. But most bakery batters are made fluffy with white flour and sweetened with enough sugar to cover four glazed donuts—a 400-plus-calorie breakfast with more than 70g of carbs, most from refined sources like white flour and brown sugar. And the portion size? These muffins are enormous. Our mission: Bring the bran muffin back into balanced territory with 100% whole grains and no refined sugar—but still keep it moist and packed with flavour.
