Delightful MOCHACHIP Cookies

This was my first gluten free experiment. I wanted to make chocolate chip cookies, but I had just run out of vanilla. I improvised and this is what I came up with. These Mochachip cookies have been deemed "Better than chocolate chip cookies" by my seven year old son. They have a hint of coffee and plenty of good chocolaty goodness.

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
2 cups rice flour
2 cups sorghum flour
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp coffee beans - finely ground
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp pure stevia powder (or one cup sugar)
8 oz chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 400 F. Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs. Combine dry ingredients and stir into the sugar mixture. Add chocolate chips and stir.
Make small balls and flatten them with your palm. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Yields: 4 - 5 dozen cookies.

We made ours tiny just like the super expensive Gluten-Free cookies at Whole Foods. Then to prevent over-eating them and promote making them last, we packaged them with squares of corrugated cardboard and ribbon. The 'window' is made with clear packing tape on both sides of a cut out shape. Seal them first in small ziploc bags and they should stay fresh for a week or so.
