Choc Chip & Peanut Butter Cookies

gluten free, vegan, dairy free, egg free, refined sugar free
Prep Time 2 minutes
Cook Time 11 minutes
Total Time 13 minutes
Servings 8 cookies

Ingredients

  • 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

Method

  1. Pre heat the oven to 180C
  2. Melt the coconut oil and add to a large mixing bowl
  3. Add the maple syrup and whisk until mixed
  4. Now add the buckwheat flour, peanut butter, Xanthan gum, salt and mixed together with a whisk
  5. Add a handful of chocolate drops or crushed chocolate bar and mix again

  6. Now roll into balls and place on baking paper
  7. Gently press down with two fingers or a fork

  8. Place in the oven for 11 minutes
  9. 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

Tips

 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
