Chocolate chip cookies (gf & vegan)

7 Jul

cookieHey folks!

Sorry I’m such a posting delinquent. I have no excuses.

The husband and I were sitting around the other day, oogling photos and videos on Instagram…. He came up with the brilliant idea to turn recipes into 15 second videos. I attempted it today with my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. It is vegan and gluten free (make sure to use vegan sugar and chocolate chips if you’re a vegan- obviously I probably didn’t need to tell you that). I can’t do dairy or eggs but am not vegan, so I used normal sugar.

Whatcha need:
Preheat oven to 350
1/2 cup (1 stick) vegan butter
1/4 c + 1/8 c brown sugar
1/4 c + 1/8 c white sugar
1/4 c unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 c white rice flour
1/4 c brown rice flour
1/2 c asian rice flour
1/4 c sorghum flour
1/4 c sweet rice flour
1 tspn baking soda
3/4 tspn guar gum
1 1/4 c chocolate chips

What you do:
Beat together your butter and sugars until creamy. Add your applesauce and vanilla and beat until combined. Scrape your bowl down and dump in all of your dry ingredients. (NOTE: I’m lazy. If you would like to mix all your dry ingredients together in a separate bowl first, go for it!) Beat everything together, scraping everything in. Next, stir in your chocolate chips.

Using a spoon or a small ice cream scooper, scoop the cookie dough onto your baking pan. I used a nonstick pan, but you can also use parchment paper. Press the cookie dough balls down slightly.

Pop the pan/cookies into the oven for about 12 minutes. Let them cool and dig in. These cookies are delicious on their own, but even better with a scoop of coconut ice cream 🙂
