Chocolate Chips Shortbreads (Vegan and Gluten-Free)

Hello sweet people,

I like having some sweet and ‘crumbly’ biscuits once in a while, especially when we are in March and it still feels like Winter is at its best instead of having an early Spring feeling.

I came up with this shortbreads recipe, adding chocolate chips for the fun (and for the taste of course, who doesn’t like a bit of dark chocolate?), with a warm cup of tea (green tea earl grey is my favourite 🙂 ), it is the perfect match, the hardest will be not to eat them all!

Here we go: Chocolate Chips Shortbreads, vegan, egg-free, dairy-free and gluten-free

Makes 15-18 cookies

Ingredients:

-200 g dark chocolate chips

-100 g of rice flour

-100 g coconut oil

-80 g brown sugar

-50 g almonds powder

-1 table spoon of milled flax seeds/line seeds

-3 table spoons of water

-2 tea spoons of baking soda

How to proceed:

Preheat your oven at 180°C.

Melt the coconut oil in a pot, remove from the stove when melted. Pour in the sugar and mix.

In another small pan, mix the flaxseeds and the water and warm up this mixture, still mixing, until a a gelatinous texture similar to egg develops. Let it cool down.

In a salad bowl, mix together the rice flour, the almonds powder and the baking soda. Pour this mix into the melted coconut+sugar mix, adding also the gelatinous flaxseeds mix and the chocolate chips. Mix until you have an homogeneous dough. On a baking tray covered with baking paper, shape small disks keeping space between each of them.

Bake in the oven for 10-15mins.

When baked, wait 5-10mins that it cool downs to remove the biscuits from the tray as they are fragile when warm and VOILA, you can treat yourself!!
