Millet Chocolate Chip Cookies with Peanut Butter

By Karen Brennan, MSW, NC, Herbalist, BCHN ®

A sweet treat to have on occasion that is gluten free but also does not contain brown rice flour.  Many GF products contain brown rice flour which is high in arsenic so it is best to limit the amount of brown rice and brown rice flour if eating a GF diet.  See my article on the benefits of millet
