Chewy Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Vegan, Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, Dairy-Free
Adapted from Dreena Burton’s Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes about 16 cookies

1/4 cup tapioca starch
1/4 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup sorghum flour
3 Tablespoons potato starch
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup raw or white sugar
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp creamy almond butter
2 Tbsp water
1/3 cup pure maple syrup (I like Grade B)
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2-3/4 cup chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a medium bowl, stir together all dry ingredients. Add almond butter, water, maple syrup, and vanilla, mixing by hand or with a mixer on medium speed. Dough will be thick. Fold in as many chocolate chips as desired.

3. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto prepared sheets. Flatten slightly. Bake for about 10 minutes. Cookies will look a little puffy and underdone but will continue cooking after they are out of the oven. Let cool on sheet for 1-2 minutes, then remove to cooling rack. Cookies will be a little delicate until they cool. Store in airtight container.

  • I feel a cookie binge coming on. I think I'll sneak out of bed and make these after the husband's asleep. These will be my treat while he's at the Super Bowl party. Ya snooze, ya lose.

  • If you are using regular chocolate chips they wouldn't be vegan, would they?

  • There are several brands, like Enjoy Life and Rapunzel. Some of the Ghiradelli are and so are some of the Sunspire. You just have to read the ingredients. Or you could chop up some Vegan chocolate. Yum.

  • @Cloudberry--yep, you'd definitely need to use vegan chips for these. As Laurel said (Thx Laurel!), Enjoy Life, Rapunzel, and Dagoba make dairy-free/vegan chips. Or, a lot of dark chocolate is naturally vegan (just make sure it doesn't contain butterfat), and can easily be chopped up to stand-in for chips. :) Good luck.

  • Yeah, these will be my Super Bowl on Sunday. Who wants football when you can make Jenn's COOKIES!! Done and done. xo
