Just because you are gluten intolerant doesn't mean that you have to miss out on the joy that is eating a chocolate chip cookie.
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 1/2 cups buckwheat flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla powder
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 125g unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup rice malt syrup
- 1 egg
- 100g 85% dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
Preheat oven to 160°C. Line two baking sheets with baking paper.
Combine flour, baking powder, vanilla powder and salt in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl beat butter and rice malt syrup until creamy. Add egg and beat until combined.
Add butter mixture to dry ingredients and combine with a wooden spoon. Fold through chocolate.
Spoon tablespoonfuls of the mixture into balls and place on the lined trays. Press down slightly.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container.
If you really wanted to take it a step further you could replace the dark chocolate with cacao nibs which would reduce the sugar more.
