We couldn’t let National Celiac Awareness Month go by without some chewy chocolatey baked goods! This sumptuous recipe, adapted from the Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook by Elana Amsterdam, offers a heap of cocoa powder, offset with sweet agave nectar. This recipe book offers a vast array of delicious, gluten-free recipes, but it is not a vegan cookbook so, like with many cookbooks, we have to adapt. Luckily, most of the recipes simply call for eggs which can be replaced with Ener-g vegan egg replacer.
Vegan, Gluten-Free Chewy Chocolate Cookies
|Don't you just hate it when you are looking for a recipe, and you have to scroll through dozens of pages before you get to the recipe way down at the bottom of the page?
That's because they are trying to make money off you and Google requires it. We don't care - we're here to share recipes with you, and will never make you scroll through several pages only to get to what you want - the recipe. That said, it does cost us money to run the site, so if you like something you found here, please consider donating to support The Happy Gluten Free Vegan!
Yield: Makes 12 cookies
- 3 cups blanched almond flour
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup arrowroot powder
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup grapeseed oil
- 3/4 cup agave nectar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, salt, baking soda, arrowroot powder, and cocoa powder. In a medium bowl, whisk together the grapeseed oil, agave nectar, and vanilla extract. Stir the wet ingredients into the almond flour mixture until thoroughly combined. Scoop the dough a scant 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving 2 inches between each cookie.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, until the tops of the cookies look dry and start to crack – be careful not to overcook. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 30 minutes. Serve.
We love to enjoy these yummy cookies the old fashioned way, with a big glass of cold almond milk!
