So… I have no grains in the kitchen. They aren’t under the table. And, they didn’t roll down the stairs (if we had any).
No grains = no flour + no cornmeal + no oatmeal + no pasta + no rice.
Just to clarify, we’re not going gluten free. I’m semi-thinking about going Paleo, but until then, I love grains. I wish I had more (or any).
Prior to this post, I had exactly 1 and 1/4 cups of matzoh meal (no flour, no spelt, nothing else)…. that we used for passover 2013. Besides making matzoh ball soup and passover chocolate pie, I don’t really use it for anything else. But, I wanted chocolate chip cookies and found out right before this post that matzoh meal has another use: Chocolate Chip cookies. That are soo thin and yummy and crunchy. They’re not pretty enough to bring to a party, but they will definitely do for home use.
Matzoh Chocolate Chip Cookies
Not adapted from another recipe. Completely made up and so delicious.
1/4 cup matzoh meal
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons tapioca flour
2 Tablespoons “milk”
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
2 Tablespoons “butter”
2 teaspoons peanut butter
a handful of chocolate chips or 1/4 of a cup
Directions: In a small mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients. In ANOTHER small mixing bowl, add peanut butter and “butter.” Microwave on high for 20 seconds to soften both. Add maple syrup and milk to butter mixture and stir until smooth. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop dough by 2 teaspoonfuls about 3 inches apart. Lightly coat dough with cooking spray. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until tops are lightly golden brown.
Allow to cool, then crunch away. Soo yummy!
Makes: around 8 cookies (depending on how much dough you eat before it makes it to the oven)
