Grain Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies
I was so excited when Otto’s Naturals sent me a bag of their Cassava Flour. I have been wanting to bake with Cassava Flour for awhile now. This was my first time ever baking with it and I have to say it truly is a winner in my book. These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk cookies turned out so moist, chewy, and soft. No grittiness or weird textures.
Cassava Flour is a grain free flour that comes from the Yuca root vegetable. Cassava is not only grain free and gluten free, but its nut free, vegan, vegetarian, and paleo as well. It makes it a great choice for those on selective diets. One thing to keep in mind is that although it’s grain free, it does not mean it’s low carb. It actually contains a pretty high carbohydrate profile, given the fact that it comes from a starchy tuber.
Otto’s Cassava flour can be used as a one to one substitute by weight for wheat flour in many recipes because of its mild flavor and light texture. You can expect it to have no additives, xantham gum, or fillers, how exciting is that?!
