Recipes to remember

The FODMAP diet is the fructose-free diet that we FrucMals need to abide by like the law. Of course, eating ONE bad thing won't kill you, but it can cause discomfort, believe it or not. First, I have a few things to show you.
So, I bet you miss sweets. I mean, who won't? My mom and I went to this class where they told us SOOO much information. They gave us this awesome recipe for choco-chip cookies too! You'll need;

1 cup rice flour [You can find this in the big bins at WinCo, or in small bags in the health food section at many grocery stores.]
1 1/2 cups oats
1 tablespoon tapioca flour [You can find it where you can find rice flour, see above.]
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup dextrose [You can find this at beer and wine making supply stores. If you live in Washington, there's one in Lakewood.]
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions:
1.
Preheat oven to 375° F.
2. Mix together rice flour, oats, tapioca flour, baking soda, and cinnamon.
3. In a separate bowl cream the butter, brown sugar, and dextrose. Add egg and vanilla.
4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and then add the dark chocolate chips. Cover and chill for at least one hour.
5. Roll dough into walnut sized balls. Place on cookie sheet.
6. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes.

Notes: You can have ONE PER DAY with a meal with some type of protein in it. Since you can only have one per day, they freeze quite well! :)
