gf cooking - finally something worth the calories!!

have officially been gluten free for 4 days and am getting sick of soup and rice bread. a gf friend of mine gave me some almond flour and her cook book to try (i've tried cooking with Bob's Red Mill gf flour and it tastes like ass).
i made chocolate chip cookies and actually think they may be the best cookies i've ever had, period.
since i'm in a few days of taper (50km trail race this weekend!!), i have time to blog about important things like food. here's the recipe:

2 1/2 c of almond flour
1/2 t sea salt
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 c grapeseed oil (i used coconut oil and will continue to do so)
1/2 c agave nectar
1T vanilla
2/3 c of chocolate chips

mix dry, mix wet, add wet to dry, chill for 20, cook for 8 - 10 @ 350.

the. best. ever.
