I posted ‘My Best Chocolate Chip Cookie – and it’s GF’ not too long ago.
You know what’s coming, now don’t you? I was wrong. I have a new best, although this is just an adaptation of the old best…… These are my best-est, BFF-est chocolate chip cookies – in fact they are right up there with my best cookies ever and are indeed GF, so the whole family is very excited about these cookies, and dang it, they are almost gone.
I also made these without nuts because 2 guests coming to a gathering that night don’t do nuts. And I (who generally feel that nuts are an essential ingredient in any worthwhile chocolate endeavor) loved them. So the original recipe is here and the new recipe is………
GF Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
My Best GF chocolate chip cookies – vegan as well!!
– adapted from I.S. at Yahoo Voices
1 cup Bob’s Red Mill GF baking mix (or your favorite GF baking mix)
½ c almond meal (or dried and pulverized leftover almond milk mash – that’s what I use)
½ c brown rice flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 Tbsp tapioca starch or potato starch
1 tsp guar gum
½ c brown sugar
½ tsp salt
1 1/2 Tbsp cocoa powder
½ c pure maple syrup
½ Tbsp blackstrap molasses
3 tsp pure vanilla extract
½ cup + 1/2 Tbsp organic neutral flavored oil (I used avocado)
½ – 2/3 c non-dairy chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Mix the dry except chips
In a separate bowl, combine the maple syrup, molasses and vanilla, then stir in the oil until well combined.
Add the wet mixture to the dry, along with the chips, and stir until combined
Place ½ Tbsp scoops on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and flatten a little.
Bake for 12-14 minutes, rotating halfway through until browning just a tad on the bottom. Mine puffed up slightly and then started to deflate. That’s when I took them out.
Cool on a wire rack before removing from tray.
As Little Sis always says….. and she comes from a very bright family I hear – Eat that chocolate cookie while it is still warm!!
