This is a ‘must try’ recipe! Last weekend I tested this recipe on 21 ladies at a baby shower I was hosting and not only did they go before dessert was even served, but there was a lot of chatter and amazement about them being made with almond flour. It was a nice option to have something gluten free as you never know who will show up with food restrictions and/or allergies.
On a side note, my plan was not to come up with a gluten free cookie, it just so happens that they are. I only had to tweak the recipe twice before I got them right and the ladies at the shower confirmed there was no need to tweak anymore!
The almond flour makes them extra chewy and soft, the recipe is simple and oh so tasty! I like to use good quality chocolate in my chocolate chip cookies, it really does make a huge difference. Lindt chocolate is one of my favourites to bake with. I like to chop the chocolate in big chunks, mixing dark and milk chocolate together. It’s a simple tip that’s a game changer in the cookie department 😉 Trust me on this, try using top quality chocolate rather than the packaged chocolate chips and you’ll never go back!
