carob walnut cookies

We occasionally walk down to the coffee shop in our neighborhood.  There my Beloved got introduced to carob in some of the cookies there.  I will admit that I am not very fond of carob.  My Mom tried to pass it off as chocolate to us when I was small and it just does not work that way for me.  It has its own flavor.  My Beloved does not have those type of bad connotations, so he likes it.

I put together some walnut and carob cookies for him.  His comment was "that's a cookie!"  He keeps munching them.  Small Mister seems to like them a lot as well.  He fell asleep with one in each hand last night.

walnut and carob cookies

1/2 cup butter

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup sorghum flour

1/2 cup millet flour

1/2 cup almond flour

1/2 cup arrowroot flour

1/3 cup chopped walnuts

1/3 to 1/2 cup carob chips

sugar for rolling the cookies in if you wish.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Cover baking sheets with parchment paper or silpats.

Cream the sugar and butter together.  Mix in vanilla.  Mix in the flours.  Mix in the walnuts and carob chips.  The dough may look more like bits then real dough.  It will press together.

Roll a teaspoon of the dough into a ball.  Roll in sugar if you wish.  Put on the baking sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden.

That's a cookie according to my Beloved!
