Who doesn’t like choc chip cookies? As always these are easy to make, and I am pretending to be healthy, ha ha.
Instead of using plain flour I have swopped for rice flour, as such they are gluten free. I use Bornville dark chocolate. The chocolate is left in chunks so you can taste it, so the better quality the better.
200g flour either plain, or as I have, rice flour 150g unsalted butter 170g sugar (caster is best but granulated will do) 1 tsp vanilla extract - adds extra taste, but if you don't have any in... leave it out 1 egg, beaten 1tsp baking powder 150g dark chocolate, as higher % as you can. broken into small chunks
Oven on to 160oC line 2 baking trays with baking paper put the butter and sugar into a food mixer and blast until you have a cream add the egg and vanilla and mix again sift in the flour and baking powder and mix again until all combined add in the chocolate chunk and mix for a couple of seconds to distribute the chocolate Take out a large spoonful of mix and, with your hands, roll into a ball place each ball onto the baking sheets about 5cm apart place in the oven for 13 to 15 mins, until nice and golden brown take out of the oven and leave on the trays to cool or transfer onto cooling trays if you have them.
