Gluten free chocolate and orange cookie

Chocolate

Gluten-free cookies are very expensive for the amount you get. With four kids, a box of chocolate cookies can be gone before I even mention it. So today I decided to make some so I can have one, and even that, they did not last until the end of the day. At least I can say they liked them.

For 24 cookies

Preparation time:10 minutes

Cooking time: 12-15 minutes

  • 1 1/2 cup of gluten free all purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • a pinch of saltOrange zest
  • 2 tbsp. of chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of vegan butter
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup of walnuts
  • 5 tbsp. almond milk
  • Zest and juice of 1 orange
  1. Preheat your oven to 375º.
  2. Melt the chocolate in the microwave, not too long or it will cook and crystallize which is not good, or you can melt it in a double boiler.
  3. In a bowl, mix the flour, the baking soda, the salt and the chia seeds. In another bowl, cream the butter and the brown sugar.
  4. Combine the flour mix to the butter mix and add the chocolate and the walnuts.
  5. Mix in the orange zest, the juice and the almond milk.
  6. On a cookie sheet, place 1 tbsp. of batter and place it in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until you see the bottom starts to be golden.
