Gluten Free Vegan Cookies: Chocolate Chocolate Chip with dab of Peanut Butter
Taking beautiful photography of food can be tricky! I also get excited when I taste a brand new recipe for the first time. I was so pleased at how well these Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies turned out that I wanted to take a snap and post to Instagram! So I did and here it is:
After further review, “What was I thinking”! They either look like Cheeseburgers or well something else…… 🙁 The photo above really isn’t worth an instagram! I share it anyways and I left it up, cause it’s worth a chuckle or two.
So the next morning I was ready to make amends with a better photo of these gems.
This is a photo is better. I added a dab of peanut butter to half of the cookies as sometimes the kids don’t like all the extra flavor. I really liked the extra peanut butter and they are really good on their own as well. Next time I think i’m going to bury the peanut butter in the middle of the cookies, then I think the’ll be more like peanut butter cups! 🙂
1 Cup Almond Flour
1 Cup Coconut Flour
4 TBS Cocoa Powder
1 tsp Baking powder
1tsp Xanthum gum
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 Cup Coconut Sugar
1/2 Cup Light Brown Sugar
1 Stick Earth Balance “butter”
2 tsp Vanilla
1/2 Cup Vegan Chocolate Chips
2 Chia Eggs (2 TBS ground Chia seeds combined with 6 TBS of liquid)
Preheat oven to 350F. Combine liquid and Chia Seed grounds in a bowl and set aside for approximately 5-10 minutes.
Add dry ingredients into one bowl and whisk together. Combine EarthBalance “butter”, both sugars and Vanilla in a separate bowl and combine with an electric mixer. Once combined add the dry ingredients and Chia Eggs and mix together. Add Chocolate chips and mix with a spoon to disperse.
Place dough on a Silicone pad lined cookie sheet and add a dab of peanut butter if you so desire and bake for 8-10 minutes. Enjoy!
