So long gluten! We don't need you for our cookie making. Gluten free or not, these are tasty cookies, soft and cakey with nice texture from the almond flour.
I'm planning on working on more GF and possibly vegan cookie recipes. Looking forward to sharing (and eating) the results!
About 12 cookies.
Gluten Free Almond + chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup almond flour
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup oil (your choice, I used grape seed)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup chocolate chips or raw cacao nibs
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, whisk almond flour, brown sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt. Add egg, oil and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined. Mix in chocolate chips/nibs. Chill dough 10 minutes to firm it up. (You can skip this but you're cookies will spread a bit more.)
Use a tablespoon to portion dough onto a silpat lined baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on pan, 5 minutes. Carefully remove from silpat by sweeping an off set spatula underneath each cookie.
