I love creating gluten free cookie recipes, especially ones that my kids absolutely adore and these double chocolate chip cookies are no exception! They are simply amazing!
This is also my first recipe for 2019 plus tomorrow is my birthday, so what better way to start the year and to celebrate my birthday than by sharing this freaking awesome cookie recipe.
These cookies are adapted from the tastiest gluten free chocolate chip cookies recipe that I shared last year. They are just as easy to prepare with only a couple of minor adjustments and the addition of raw cacao powder.
Ingredients you need
The ingredients you need to make these babies are:
- almond meal
- tapioca or arrowroot powder
- gluten free baking powder
- raw cacao powder
- coconut oil
- pure maple syrup
- chocolate chips
Now onto the chocolate chips, you can use any type you want to suit your dietary requirements. There are plenty of dairy free options available these days if you are dairy free or vegan.
How to make these double chocolate chip cookies
Making these cookies is pretty simple really.
First you add the dry ingredients to medium sized bowl and make sure you mix really well so that there are no clumps.
Then whisk together the coconut oil and maple syrup in another bowl and then add to the dry ingredients and mix through.
Then fold through your chocolate chips.
Finally, use a soup spoon to scoop out the dough and using using slightly damp hands, shape the cookies into 12 balls.
I like to flatten them slightly with the back of the spoon before placing into the pre-heated oven (170 degrees celcius/340 degrees fahrenheit) for 20 minutes.
Then allow the cookies to cool for 20 minutes on the baking tray, before removing to a wire rack to cool down further.
Well, they are pretty damn tasty when warm, so that last bit is up to you!!!!!
