We've been playing in the snow a lot these past few weeks. And with snow days comes making soups and baking cookies. I've been experimenting with more gluten-free and vegan cooking and I have some yummy soup recipes I want to share with you. Until then, here's a really good gluten-free, vegan chocolate cookie that I think you'll like.
Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Bites
2 1/2 cups of gluten free flour
(I use Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Mix)
1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 cup all natural peanut butter (optional)
2/3 cup agave
1/2 cup sunflower oil
1 T vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Then, mix the agave, sunflower oil and vanilla together, and pour into the dry ingredients. Mix for about two minutes until the ingredients are combined. Finally, add the chocolate chips. Form small balls and place directly on a cookie sheet. I bake these at 350 degrees for 7-9 minutes. At 7 minutes I check them and press them down with the back of a spoon to flatten them while warm. Then I bake them for another minute or two.
I love these cookies because they are simple, very low in sugar and everyone in my house can eat them.
And for a kid who doesn't get to eat dairy and eats very little sweets, well, you can see these cookies make him very, very happy!
