Almond & Coconut Choc Chip Cookies - Gluten Free Recipe

As I have a bit of a sweet tooth, I have been trying to find some more gluten free cake and biscuit recipes, so when I came across this one I knew I could adapt it and make it something special.

If you love coconut and almonds with a little chocolate chip hit then these are for you, they are kind of like a macaroon with a biscuit twist, everyone in the family loved them, including my normally coconut avoiding children.

gluten free almond and coconut cookies


Ingredients - Makes 12

140g Ground Almonds
30g Chocolate Chips (I used Milk Choc)
40g Dessicated Coconut
½ tsp Baking Powder
¼ tsp Salt
75g Soft Brown Sugar
1 Egg
3 Tbsp Coconut Oil
½ Tsp Vanilla Extract

Method:
  1. Preheat oven to 180c, line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. Mix the ground almonds, desiccated coconut, baking powder, chocolate chips, salt and sugar together in a large mixing bowl until evenly mixed.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the egg until smooth and it has doubled in size, then mix in the coconut oil and vanilla essence.
  4. Add the egg mixture to the dry mixture and mix well until everything is combined, then cover with cling film and pop into the fridge for 30 minutes.
  5. After 30 minutes, take out of the fridge, take a small amount, roughly a heaped teaspoon and roll into a ball in the palm of your hands, pop onto the baking tray and flatten slightly with the back of a fork.
  6. Bake in the oven for about 8-10 or until the edges are golden brown.
These are a great store cupboard cookie, I always have a bag or two of ground almonds now for my brownies or finding new recipes like this.
