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 http://trufoodsnutrition.com/10-reasons-why-you-should-add-this-grain-seed-into-your-diet/
- ½ c. coconut sugar
- ½ c. organic brown sugar
- 1 c. peanut butter (or try with almond butter)
- ½ c. grass fed butter softened (or if DF use spectrum)

- ¾ c. millet flour
- ¼ c. arrow root starch

- 1 c. dark chocolate chips (I like Lily’s or Enjoy Life chocolate chip brands)
- Cream the butter with the sugars and the peanut butter. Add the egg and blend
- In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, starch, baking soda and powder and salt
- Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and combine well
- Add in the dark chocolate.
- Wrap the dough in parchment paper and chill in fridge for at least 30 minutes
- Place dough on parchment lined cookie tray and bake for 12 minutes at 350 degrees F.
