Gluten Free Chocolate and Blueberry Cookies

Today we’d like to share with you one of our favourite sweet treat recipes which we throw together when we have friends over or we’re just in the need for a cookie (or two!).

The best chocolate chips are Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference 70% but if you can’t get those then please just crush up some Green and Blacks 70% because the alternatives are really poor quality and contain crazy amounts of sugar.

Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes: 8 large cookies or 12 smaller ones

Prep: 5 minutes

Cook: 10 to 15 minutes

Cool: 20 to 30 minutes

Ingredients:

100g ground almond flour

100g Doves Farm Gluten Free Self Raising Flour (or organic self raising if prefer not GF)

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ cup melted Kerrygold butter

¼ cup Billingtons golden granulated sugar

2 large egg whites whisked (lose the yolks)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ cup dried blueberries

½ cup chocolate chips or smashed up 70% Green and Blacks

Instructions:

Place all ingredients in a food processor or bowl and mix well until all combined

Scoop dough one tablespoon at a time onto a parchment lined baking sheet

Press balls of dough down so they are very flat, wetting your hand if the dough is sticky

Bake at 170 for 15-20 minutes turning once or twice.

Allow to cool for up to 30 minutes so they go crispy.

Serve with a large mug of organic coffee or proper tea.

Don’t keep them all to yourself because they are calorie dense!
