Healthy recipes chocolate chip cookies (gluten free, vegan, low sugar)

I love a good cookie and adding Gluten Free and Skinny to the mix only makes it better. While I admit, I’ve eaten raw dough (with eggs) for decades, I’m excited to try this recipe because most eggless recipes I’ve seen call for things like chickpeas.

ingredients:

  • 1 cup gluten-free flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup honey (agave nectar for vegan diet)
  • 4 Tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 4 ounces unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 ounces 70-88% dark chocolate bar, crushed
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 350° F
    2. Prepare baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat
    3. In a medium bowl add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix together.
    4. Stir in the vanilla extract, honey, peanut butter, applesauce. Stir until fully combined.
    5. Fold in the crushed dark chocolate and mini chocolate chips
    6. Mixture will be slightly sticky. Drop the dough onto baking sheet by the Tablespoon.
    7. They were not spread out during being baked so make sure you have them looking the way you want them to look. I personally like to flatten them and make them more of a circle cookie.
    8. Bake them for 8-11 minutes or until they have risen and are golden brown.
