1/4 cup of Organic Coconut Flour
1/2 cup of Organic Potato Starch
1 tablespoon of Organic Arrowroot Powder
1 cup of your choice of Organic Gluten Free Flour – see Gluten Free Flour Blends
1 tsp of baking powder
1/4 tsp of bi-carb
1/4 cup of Organic Raw Sugar
1/3 cup of softened (but not completely melted) Organic Raw Coconut Oil
1/2 cup of kettle boiled hot water
1 tablespoon of White Vinegar
1 tsp of Organic Vanilla Essence
75g of Organic Fair Trade Dark Chocolate ( we use 3/4 of a block of Aldi’s fair trade dark chocolate) broken into small pieces.
Preheat Oven to 160C fan forced and line a baking tray with eco-friendly, unbleached baking paper.
First blend together all the dry ingredients, we use our Vitamix to do this, as it is powerful enough in 10 seconds on high to turn the raw sugar into powdered sugar and to get rid of all the lumps in the coconut flour. If you don’t have a blender, you can easily sift the flour by hand.
Then in a mixmaster on low, or by hand with a fork, add all the wet ingredients and blend to combine till mixture forms a crumbly dough. Then using your hands knead the dough mixture until it forms a smooth ball of dough. With your hands squash the dough out onto a chopping board and press in the broken pieces of dark chocolate. Now knead the dough a little more to combine in the chocolate pieces.
To make the cookie shapes, break off small blobs and roughly shape into thick flattened balls and spread them out on your baking paper on your tray and then bake in the oven for 12-15 mins.
Store in airtight container for a few days, but they are so delicious, I doubt they will last a few days.
