Ah yes, the traditional chocolate chip cookie. I don’t think I have met anyone who doesn’t like chocolate chip cookies. This recipe is very simple – made with whole ingredients and not a lot of sweetener. My kids and I ate the whole batch, which says something about these cookies! Sometimes I use Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips in these cookies, but my favorite is the Enjoy Life 69% Dark Chocolate Chips. I am grateful for allergy-free chocolate chips because no one should have a tummy ache after eating a chocolate chip cookie!
2 cups gluten-free flour*
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Chips
3/4 cup Coconut Sugar
1/2 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut milk
*add in 1 teaspoon xanthan gum to recipe, if your flour blend does not contain it.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and coconut sugar. In a small bowl, mix together the applesauce, vanilla extract, and coconut milk. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Using a small cookie scoop, or tablespoon, drop cookie dough on to prepared baking sheet. Place in oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, rotating 180 degrees halfway through cooking time. Remove from oven and cool on baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
