Okay, first of all, don't read the title and immediately think "gross". These cookies actually weren't that bad! Although they lacked the authentic chocolate chip cookie flavor, these came pretty darn close. 

My friend Nicole and I were both craving chocolate chip cookies yesterday and we decided that there was no better way to spend a Friday night than baking cookies and playing a little Just Dance on the wii--dont judge. (: Since Nicole doesn't eat processed sugar (aka. desserts and other sugary foods) we had to find a recipe that would suit both of our needs. We came across a cookie recipe on Pinterest which led us to the fantastic blog Sift, Stir & Savour. (We adapted the recipe a little)

Erin's recipe called for almond butter, coconut sugar and erythritol ( or any sugar substitute) . However, Nicole and I decided not to use the almond butter and instead of the coconut sugar and erythritol we used Splenda Baking Sweetener. I have never made these cookies before, so I wouldn't know what the difference is between adding almond butter and leaving it out. But, when we tasted these cookies they had a very mellow flavor so I'm thinking the almond butter would have been good to add. Oh well, there is always a next time! (:  

After making this recipe, Nicole and I decided to create a snap guide so you can check it out here! 
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch (flour)
  • 1/4 cup potato starch
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup baking sweetener
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 3/4 cup dairy free chocolate chips

Optional: 1/3 cup almond butter 

Makes 20, 1/2 in cookies 
  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Combine all the flours, salt and baking soda in a small bowl and set aside. 
  3. In a mixer (or another bowl) combine the applesauce, baking sweetener, vanilla and almond milk. Mix until fully combined.
  4. Add the flour to the mixer and mix until all the ingredients are combined and you have a dough!
  5. Add in the chocolate chips and mix by hand. 
  6. Spoon onto cookie sheet and press down on the cookies because they do not spread out when they bake.
  7. Bake for 8 minutes
^^ A little blurry, but we enjoyed the cookies :)
