Double chocolate cookies

By Bernadette Gee

Makes 20 cookies | Prep 20 mins plus 2 hrs chilling time | Cook 15 mins | Calories 221 (per single cookie)

75g (2½oz) almond meal (ground almonds)

225g (8oz) gluten-free flour

170g (6oz) soft brown sugar

40g (1½oz) Dutch cocoa

175g (6oz) dairy-free butter substitute

75g (2½oz) golden syrup

100g (3½oz) boiling water

1½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

125g (4½oz) vegan 70% dark chocolate chunks vegan ice cream (optional), to serve

1 Put the almond meal, flour, sugar and cocoa into the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, and mix on low to combine.

2 On the stove, heat the dairyfree butter and golden syrup in a pot until the butter has melted. Separately, mix the boiling water and bicarbonate of soda together and add it to the pot, stirring to combine.

3 Add this liquid mixture to your dry ingredients and mix on low until combined. Add the chocolate and fold through by hand. Chill the mixture in the fridge for 1 hour.

4 Scoop portions of mixture (using a cookie scoop, if you have one) onto a tray lined with baking paper. You can space them close together, as this is just the chilling stage. Chill for at least an hour in the fridge (or less time in the freezer), so that the dough is firm and holds its shape. At this point you can put the raw cookies into a container and store them in the freezer. If you do this, make sure you layer them between pieces of baking paper as this recipe is stickier than other cookie recipes. If you don’t they will all freeze together.
