Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I had the ultimate lazy Sunday today which featured getting my bake on. As you can see, the outcome was pretty delicious. I thought it was only fair that I shared the recipe for anyone who fancies whipping these choc chip cookies/biscuits up at home.


1/2 cup cashew or almond butter ⁣

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil⁣

4 tbsp maple syrup ⁣

2 tbsp coconut sugar (or brown sugar)⁣

1 egg ⁣

1 and 3/4 cups of blanched almond meal ⁣

1/2 tsp baking powder ⁣

2 tsp vanilla extract ⁣

1 bar of 85% Lindt chocolate ⁣

Pinch of salt ⁣

Method ⁣

1. Preheat the oven to 180. ⁣

2. Add the nut butter, maple syrup, sugar, olive oil and egg to a food processor and mix till combined. You could do this by hand, you’ll just need some serious elbow grease. ⁣

3. Remove the batter from the processor and add to a bowl with the almond meal and baking powder. ⁣

4. Chop the chocolate into small cubes and then add it to the dough until evenly mixed through. ⁣

5. Roll the mixture into balls and then squish into cookie shapes onto a lined baking tray. Add a sprinkle of salt onto each cookie and then pop into the oven until golden and delicious.
