When I decided to cut out refined sugar, one thing I didn’t ever, ever want to stop having were my favourite chewy chocolate chip cookies. Fortunately for me, although perhaps unfortunately for my overused oven, I didn’t have to.
Previously, when baking chocolate chip cookies I would use heaps of brown sugar, flour and sugar laden chocolate. Now, after (happily) testing out many different versions, I have developed my best cookie recipe yet.
My Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe is: refined sugar free, dairy free, wheat free
Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies Ingredients
1/2 cup unrefined coconut sugar
65 grams of refined sugar free chocolate
1/4 cup gluten free oats
1 cup of peanut butter (I prefer crunchy for the texture but smooth will work just as well)
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
pinch of salt
Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies Method
Start by preheating your oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line two baking trays with parchment paper
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg, vanilla and coconut sugar
Once well mixed, mix in the oats, peanut butter, baking soda and salt
Roughly chop the chocolate pieces and add them to the mixing bowl, stirring well.
Roll out even balls of the mixture, in total you should be able to make about 12 small cookies or 10 slightly larger ones
Space the cookies onto the baking tray and bake for about 10 – 15 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown
Best enjoyed warm with a cup of tea or your favourite nut milk
Store in an air tight container
