Chewy Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cookies

If you are not as strict on the sugar intake as I am, feel free to top the cookies with honeyed nuts and drizzle with some melted dark chocolate. Otherwise, enjoy them like this as they are amazingly good. I used organic Smooth Peanut Butter, but for extra texture feel free to use crunchy nut butter instead. Makes approx 14 cookies.

Ingredients

Wet Ingredients and sweeteners:

  • 1 cup organic peanut butter

  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup xylitol
  • 1/4 cup [non-dairy] milk

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/2 cup plain gluten-free flour
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp potato starch

Optional:

  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts

Instructions

Preheat oven to 180C (160C fan-forced, 350F, gas mark 4)

  • In a large bowl mix together all wet ingredients and sweeteners until smooth.
  • Sift all dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and using a wooden spoon, mix until the mixture forms a cookie dough ball and all dry ingredients are incorporated into the dough.
  • Using a 1/8-cup capacity scoop, divide dough into 14 even balls. Roll each ball between your hands and flatten gently.
  • If using, press a pinch of chopped nuts into each, or alternating biscuit.
  • Bake in for 15 minutes, or until the cookies begin to brown around the edges.
