When there is cookie dough left over from the holidays in the freezer and almond meal left from DIY almond milk in the fridge, it’s time to find something to make that tastes good!
The left-overs from DIY almond milk is great for cakes, cookies or brownies. Sometimes, I will even drop a scoop into my morning smoothie.
There are times that I want ‘milk’ for breakfast, but should not drink the calcium-added type due to thyroid meds. So I have to make it in the blender.
This dessert is quick and easy. The quinoa flour complements the chocolate taste. This also makes an impressive dessert for potlucks with friends.
Hopefully the weather will be sunny, so I can deliver most of this to those who can afford to eat it without arriving ‘all fluffy’ this Spring!
Chocolate-Chip Cookie Bottom Brownies - Gluten Free
7 to 8 ounces Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (cookie dough to cover bottom of 9 inch square pan)
4 Tbsp Quinoa flour
1 pinch salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 tsp vanilla powder
4 Tbsp unsweetened natural cocoa
4 Tbsp Canola Harvest Margarine (or 70% or more fat soy-free margarine)
3 Tbsp leftover blanched almond meal (from DIY almond milk)*
6 Tbsp granulated Stevia
2 Tbsp liquid full-fat cream
2 Tbsp hot water
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
Place cookie dough on cellophane wrap and roll out into a square that will fit the bottom of the baking pan. Gently lift it onto the pan, pressing and filling any holes that appear in the dough.
Whisk egg, margarine and Stevia until fluffy, whisk in almond meal and cream.
