chocolate, hazelnut, oatmeal cookies

Small Mister has become my cooking helper.  He is tall enough to stand on a chair and stir now.  I worked a thirteen hour day today and needed tea and cookies.  So I put some together for us.  Gluten free.  Chocolate.  Not too sweet.  Perfect after a very long day.

2 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon granulated sugar

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg yolk

2 tablespoon sorghum flour

1 tablespoon quinoa flour

1 tablespoon cocoa

1/8 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoon hazelnut flour

2 tablespoons quick oatmeal

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cream butter, sugars, and vanilla in a small bowl.  Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.

Cover a baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper.  Drop teaspoons of dough on the baking sheet.  Bake for ten minutes.

Eat warm!  After a very long day.
