Epic Vegan and Gluten-Free Chocolate Chips Cookies

good morning my friends! hope everyone is doing amazing and having a great week. it’s about to get a whole lot better because we have Epic Vegan and Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies on the blog. these are probably some of the best cookies that i have ever created and you won’t believe how easy they are!

the texture is completely unreal! the outside is hard and then the minute you tear the cookie in half, sooo soft.

honestly, the ideal texture if you ask me. serve em up with a glass of dairy free milk and hot damn.

the ingredient list is really short AND you can make this in a food processor like me if you don’t have a mixer.

you’re just going to have to make sure the dough is completely blended and that there aren’t any chunks of butter left.

the reason being, we’re going to use cold vegan butter in this recipe, almost like we’re making a shortbread recipe.

for the base of the cookies, you’re going to need almond flour and gluten-free all purpose flour.

also, there aren’t any subs that i recommend as baking is super precise and there aren’t any subs that i have properly tried.

the almond flour is important as it adds some necessary fat to the cookies along with the vegan butter.

as for the other ingredients, everything is super simple and you probably have everything in your kitchen.

you’re going to need gluten free all purpose flour, almond flour, maple syrup, vegan butter, vanilla extract, baking powder and chocolate chunks or chips.

the cookie dough is really sticky but you can use a small ice cream scooper to evenly distribute the batter.

to get perfectly round cookies, well almost perfectly round haha, i ever so slightly wet the ends of my fingers and pressed the top and sides to even them out.

you definitely want to be careful to not wet your fingers too much because too much water can change the outer texture.

if you don’t want to do that, you can take a spoon and try to evenly shape them with the bottom side.
