I created these cookies because….. well who doesn’t love cookies right?!?!
Especially when you add chocolate and peanut butter to them!
These delicious choc chip and peanut butter cookies are naturally gluten free, vegan and refined sugar free.
They are so easy to make that even your kids will LOVE it. Here’s a photo of my niece Evie who is enjoying eating one of these cookies. She absolutely loves making them and whenever she sees me now all she says is cookies…. 🙂
Choc Chip & Peanut Butter Cookies
- 4 tsbp coconut oil melted, roughly 60g
- 4 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 cup buckwheat flour roughly 150g
- 2 tbsp smooth/crunchy peanut butter (I use Meridian)
- 2 small pinches Xanthan gum (I use Doves Farm)
- 2 small pinches salt
- 1 handful chocolate drops or crushed choc bars I use Pulsin as they are RSF you could also try crushed up chocolate
Pre heat the oven to 180C
Melt the coconut oil and add to a large mixing bowl
Add the maple syrup and whisk until mixed
Now add the buckwheat flour, peanut butter, Xanthan gum, salt and mixed together with a whisk
Add a handful of chocolate drops or crushed chocolate bar and mix again
Now roll into balls and place on baking paper
Gently press down with two fingers or a fork
Place in the oven for 11 minutes
Take them out of the oven (they should still be quite doughy to touch) and allow to cool for 1-2 minutes. This helps to firm the outer part of the cookie whilst keeping it doughy in the middle
EAT THEM WARM!!! I like these cookies to still be doughy in the middle, if you prefer them crisper then just leave in the oven for a couple more minutes.
If you fancy dipping them in hot chocolate then make sure you try my almond butter hot choc recipe.
