Ingredients

  • 3/4 C brown rice flour
  • 3/4 C white rice flour
  • 1/2 C potato starch not flour
  • 1/2 C tapioca starch
  • 1/3 C almond flour
  • 1 C vegan no-soy butter alternative I like Earth Balance or Mikoyos
  • 1 C brown sugar
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • 1 tsp. vegan xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. Real Salt
  • 1 tsp. gluten-free vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. gluten-free almond extract
  • 2 T ground chia plus 5 T water mixed to make an egg like texture
  • 3/4 C vegan chocolate chips I like Enjoy Life

Instructions

  • Combine all flours, starches, xanthan gum, baking soda and powder and salt in a bowl
  • In another bowl, whip butter alternative, sugars, vanilla and almond extracts until light and fluffy
  • Add the chia egg to the sugar mixture and combine
  • Slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix well
  • Fold in the chocolate chips
  • Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour (absolutely necessary)
  • Place rounded T amounts of cookie dough on a silicone baking mat or wax paper lined baking sheet 2 inches apart
  • Bake 9-11 minutes or until golden brown with slightly crispy edges
  • Let cool and enjoy or assemble ice cream sandwiches by placing ice cream in between two cookies

Notes

  • Do not heat up the butter alternative before adding it to the cookie dough
  • Use a small rounded tablespoon ice cream scoop to put little balls of dough onto a silicone baking mat
  • You do not need to flatten them
  • Be sure to give each cookie space in between the others to bake properly, 2 inches at least
  • Store cookies in an airtight container to ensure maximum softness
  • Let the cookies cool before assembling into ice cream sandwiches
