chocolate cinnamon pine nut cookies

I think I mentioned before that I read food blogs.  They inspire me.  There are a few I read more for their photography and just ideas instead of recipes.  Lucullian Delights is one of those.  I read her blog because I love her photos.  But this Christmas she came up with a chocolate cinnamon pine nut cookie that sounded absolutely fabulous.  Because of my Beloved, I needed to make it gluten free so I did.  

These cookies are addictive!  You have to wait to let them cool before taking them off the cookie sheet or they will fall apart but that did not stop us.  It was one of those:  STEP AWAY FROM THE COOKIES!  If I can figure out how to ship them, they just may be in Christmas cookie boxes next year.

Chocolate Cinnamon Pine Nut Cookies

5 ounces butter

150 grams brown sugar

40 grams/ 4 tablespoons cocoa

10 grams ground chia seeds

1 teaspoon cinnamon

50 grams almond flour

50 grams millet flour

50 grams sorghum flour

50 grams arrowroot flour

40 grams pine nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Cover you baking sheets with parcharment paper.

Cream sugar and butter together.  Mix in cocoa, cinnamon, and chia.  Mix in the flours.

Mix in pine nuts.

Scoop small teaspoons on the baking sheet.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Remove from the oven.  Let cool ten or minutes before removing from the baking sheet .

Addictive I say!  We had a filling dinner of pasta and salad and myself and my Beloved ate four each!
