Gluten Free Chocolate Cookies


I've been trying for ages to make a yummy allergy free chocolate cookie that my son can eat and I've finally cracked it this week. These cookies taste totally normal which can be tricky when you're allergy free cooking!


I used desiccated coconut as part of the flour blend to keep them nut free (and rice free for us) and I found if I blitzed the coconut with the other dry ingredients before adding the wet ingredients the cookies were nice and smooth in texture - something my son always appreciates! I hope you like them :-)

PS.
Feel free to swap out ingredients to suit your dietary requirements. You could use any starch to replace the arrowroot starch. You could also swap sorghum for a similar weight flour like brown rice flour or millet, although I choose sorghum because my son is rice free and I like to use a blend of lighter flavoured flours to produce a more 'normal' taste.


Enjoy! Lisa x
