Double Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies


These cookies are exactly what you need to satisfy a chocolate craving! The dough is super chocolatey itself, with big dark chocolate chips and chunks of walnut throughout. Plus, they are made with good-for-you almond and brown rice flours! As always, these cookies are gluten free and can easily be made dairy free too by using dairy free chocolate chips. Enjoy!Ingredients:⅓ cup brown sugar⅓ cup coconut sugar⅓ cup coconut oil5 tbsp earth balance1 egg⅔ cup almond flour⅓ cup brown rice flour⅓ cup cacao powder½ + ⅛ tsp baking soda¼ tsp xanthan gum¼ tsp salt¾ cup dark chocolate chips⅓ cup walnut piecesSteps:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375⁰ Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Using an electric beater, cream together the brown sugar, coconut sugar, coconut oil and earth balance. Add the egg and beat until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the almond flour, brown rice flour, cacao powder, baking soda, xanthan gum and salt.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and beat until combined.

  7. Use a spoon to drop dough onto cookie sheets. I used about 2 tbsp of dough for each cookie, which makes a large cookie. For smaller cookie, use about 1 tbsp of dough.
