Recipe: Gluten Free and Vegan Flourless Double Chocolate Cookies

So little MP has been looking forward to my return only because he misses my baking. I feel so loved. LOL! He has been pestering me almost every day ‘Jie Jie..when are you going to start baking?’ But he stopped asking after mum told him that I was still sick. However because he has been studying tirelessly for his PSLE papers, I thought it would be time to reward him esp since his ‘favourite’ Chinese paper is tmr :) My first attempt in three months..gosh I really missed baking :D:D:D

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp ground flax seeds + 3 tbsp cold water OR 1 egg if you dont need it to be vegan
  • 1/2 cup dried shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup almond butter/peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup Almond milk or coconut milk or soy milk (use less if you want chunkier cookies!)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 190C and line a baking sheet with parchment or a non-stick mat.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the ground flax and water. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (coconut, brown sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt).
  4. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the wet ingredients (flax egg, almond butter, almond milk, vanilla).
  5. Add wet to dry and mix well until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips
  6. Spoon the dough onto the baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches apart as they spread out a lot.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 190C. Cool on baking sheet for about 10 minutes. Makes about 12-14 cookies depending on how large you make them.

Tips:

  • Scoop out the batter with a spoon but dont flatten it, leave it in a ball as it will flatten by itself during the baking process
  • Let the cookies sit for a couple of hours first (if you can resist) so it will become crisp on the outside and gooey in the middle! :)

And that’s my very satisfied little boy :) Dont worry mum didnt let him finish the whole plate or he wouldnt be able to sit for his last two papers! Hee
