Sunbutter Crisps – Hodgson Mills Gluten Free Cookie Mix

Hodgson Mills Cookies 2The other day I was excited to discover Hodgson Mill Gluten Free Cookie Mix, 12-Ounce (Pack of 6) at Walmart. It was a pretty good price – under $3 a box, which is pretty cheap for gluten-free anything.

I brought it home, thinking I would prepare it without eggs and butter, so it would be totally Top 8 free; however, while I was at work that night, The Hubs apparently decided to be father of the year and bake the boys cookies. Well, he made them with Sunbutter and canola oil Hodson Mills Cookies(which is what I would have done) but he also used eggs… sigh. Oh well. The next time I get this mix, which will be soon, I will make them with flax to see how they turn out.

These were amazing. AMAZING. I love crispy cookies, and these were just that – crunchy and crispy, and they didn’t taste gluten free at all. If you can’t have eggs, use an egg replacer, or make your own using a tablespoon of ground/milled flax seed and 2 table spoons of water (mix them together and let them sit for several minutes til they are goopy like an egg).

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup sunbutter (we use Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 large egg or egg replacer (see above)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 box HM GF Cookie Mix

blend the wet ingredients together and add them to the cookie mix. Stir until well blended. put rounded spoonfuls on a cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 14-15 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown and have crispy edges.

The ingredients in the box are: Brown Rice Flour, Sugar, Tapioca Starch, Amaranth Flour, Cornstarch, Baking Soda, Xanthan Gum, Flake Salt.
