Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

Now these taste exactly as chocolate chip cookies should taste but there is absolutely no flour in them! Now don’t get me wrong I’m not against alternative flours – almond, tapioca and coconut ranking amongst my favourites but sometimes it’s fun to try something new.

Plus almost all the ingredients in this are items you would either a) have in the cupboard anyway or b) could pick up easily at your local supermarket. With the exception of the coconut sugar and the chocolates drops I used.

I have been trying out RealFoodSource coconut sugar chocolates drops – you’ve probably noticed them appearing in a few of my recipes recently!

They are made of nothing but cocoa and coconut sugar, taste amazing and are super easy to use. Now I do love making my own chocolate but, when time is short, these are an excellent alternative that you can throw into any mix and get perfect results.

If you happen not to have any chocolate drops to hand, or, heaven forbid, you don’t’ like chocolate, raisins make a great substitute – or why not add both in for a heavenly cookie!

Although I’ve used peanut butter it doesn’t taste very strong in these cookies and if you’re allergic it can easily be swapped for almond or cashew nut butter – both of which make a delicious alternative.

I like to think of these as a base that you can build on. Perfect in themselves but easy to alter when you fancy a change up!

Hope you have fun with these! :)
