Gluten Free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies Tips + Tricks
Gather your ingredients
This recipe uses:
- Almond + Coconut Flour. I use both almond and coconut flour in this recipe to keep it gluten and grain free.
- Cocoa Powder. Look for unsweetened cocoa powder. You may also use cacao powder if you prefer.
- Olive Oil. Instead of using butter for fat content, this recipe uses olive oil, which pairs really beautifully with the cocoa and sea salt. Choose a high quality olive oil for baking.
- Maple Syrup
- Baking Soda
- Baking Powder
- Espresso Powder. Espresso powder enhances the flavor of the chocolate in these gluten free double chocolate chip cookies.
- Sea Salt. I love using Maldon Sea Salt Flakes to garnish these cookies.
- Chocolate Chips
A low FODMAP serving of cocoa powder is around 4 tsp. This recipe calls for 1/2 cup of cocoa powder + yields 12 cookies, therefore each cookie has about 2 tsp of cocoa powder.
