DOUBLE CHOCOLATE COOKIES
DELIGHTFUL!!!!!! You really can't tell that these are 'healthy', well as healthy as double chocolate cookies can be!
1 tsp ground coffee
6 oz vegan chocolate chips, melted
1/2 cup earth balance, softened
1/2 cup applesauce unsweetened
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup armaranth flour
1 1/2 cups rice flour blend ( I made 50/50 brown and white)
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp xantham gum
1/2 tsp salt
6 oz chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375. Melt chocolate chips in microwave for about 30 seconds, stir in coffee.
Mix earth balance, applesauce, sugar and vanilla in mixer. Slowly add eggs one at a time.
In a medium bowl sift together all the dry ingredients. Slowly add to the egg mixture. once well blended add chips and stir.
Drop dough by the tablespoon on a ungreased cookie sheet, baking 9-11 minutes
I tried a few flours and the armaranth flour is so worth it, don't skip it! It gives a wonderful mild nuttiness to it. Also if you want you can add 1/3 cup pecans or marshmellows or anything like that. I think I might try with some lemon extract next time....
