Nothing says, “I love you” like some chocolate cookies. Okay. Maybe there are some other ways to say it quite effectively, but this won’t hurt. Try these out for your valentine tonight!
3/4 c. brown rice flour
1/4 c. tapioca starch
1/4 c. potato starch
1/4 tsp xanthan gum
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 c. cocoa powder
1/2 c. coconut oil, melted but room temperature
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. packed brown sugar (I used light brown because that’s what I had)
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/3 c. non-dairy milk (I used unsweetened Cashew Milk this time, but normally I use coconut milk)
1/4 c. Enjoy Life Mini-Chocolate Chips
1/4 c. mini marshmallows or 4-5 big marshmallows torn into bits
1/4 c. chopped walnuts
In a small bowl, mix flours and starches, xanthan gum, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder. In a stand mixer bowl, mix coconut oil and sugars. Blend on low. Add vanilla and blend again on low. Add half the flour and half the milk and stir just a little bit before turning on the mixer to prevent a flour cloud. Mix briefly with the mixer. Repeat with the rest of the flour and milk and mix with mixer briefly. The dough should be very thick. Add in chocolate chips, marshmallows, and walnuts.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Meanwhile, form dough into balls and place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Chill the dough balls on the cookie sheet until ready to go into the oven. Bake for 10 minutes or until desired firmness. *Note* Coconut oil will harden as it cools, so do not over bake.
