Healthy chocolate chip cookies!
1 cup almond flour (90G)
1 cup gluten free flour(90G)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons maple syrup or brown rice syrup for a lighter sweet flavor or agave syrup (90 ml)
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon fresh tahini paste - at room temperature or fresh runny peanut butter, no added sugar, no added salt
1 tablespoon unsweetened almond milk - lukewarm
1/3 cup vegan dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 180C (350F) Line a cookie tray with parchment paper. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl add almond flour, gluten free flour, baking powder, salt, maple syrup, fresh tahini paste and unsweetened almond milk (lukewarm, not cold) . Combine with a spoon until it forms a crumbly dough then stir in the vegan dark chocolate chips. Use your hands to gather the pieces of dough into a cookie dough ball. The dough should be soft and easy to bring together. If it is too dry, may happen if you used almond meal (not recommended!) add 1 tablespoon of extra almond milk to bring ingredients together. Using a cookie dough, scoop the dough, to shape 16 small cookies. Place each cookie dough ball onto a baking tray. Slightly press the top of each cookie to flatten slightly. The cookie won't expand while baking so shape them as you like, thinner they get crispier, thicker they stay softer/chewier in the center. Bake at 180C (350F) for 12-15 minutes or until the sides are golden brown. The center stay soft, white in color. The cookies will harden and get chewy at room temperature. Cool down the cookies onto a cookie rack for at least 2 hours to enjoy their best flavor and texture.
