I almost feel like I'm cheating. Aren't gluten free cookies supposed to be gritty and dry? Aren't they supposed to be loaded with all kinds of crazy flours? Is this kind of simplicity even allowed?
Well it's allowed in my world, because here I make all the rules. If I say gluten free cookies can be chewy, gooey, and easy, then they can be. If I say that you you have all the ingredients already in your pantry, then you do. And if I say "let there be chocolate", there will be chocolate.
LET THERE BE CHOCOLATE.
Flourless Brownie Cookies*I haven't tried coconut oil, but it should work. Heh.
Makes about a dozen
1/2 cup softened butter or coconut oil*
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Mix together the butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Mix together the soda, salt, and cocoa and add to the wet ingredients, mixing until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts. Bake for about 10 minutes or until they look done.
