Cow Pie Cookies

I know that my Mother would not like the name of these cookies...
but that is just how they look!
They are a crispy cookie that taste like oatmeal - chock full of all sorts of yummy stuff.

Cow Pie Cookies

1 cup rice flour
1 cup tapioca or potato starch
1 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup melted butter, margarine or lard

4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut (or mixed coconut and nuts like slivered almonds)
2 cups gluten free corn flakes, broken
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups raisins (or mixed dried fruit: dates, craisins, etc)

~Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

~In a large mixing bowl, combine the first set of dry ingredients (flour, starch, etc.)

~ Add the melted fat, eggs and vanilla. Mix well.

~Stir in the coconut, broken corn flakes, chocolate chips, fruit and nuts (if using).

~Drop tablespoons of batter onto ungreased cookie sheets. Wet the palm of your hand or the bottom of a glass and flatten cookies.

~Bake for about 10 minutes or until set. Makes about 8 dozen 1 1/2" cookies.

Tereza - you could substitute 1 cup of liquid egg substitute in this recipe. I have never tried it, but the origional recipe mentioned this.

Those look so good! Being sugar free, gluten free and dairy free it is very hard to find good recipes! With a few alterations I should be able to make these :)
