This is my own concoction for Vegan Soft Bake No Added Fat, Gluten Free Cookies. Don’t mind the earthy smell you get from the dough – with the chips bakes they smell like chocolate chip cookies.
- 1/3 cp applesauce,
- 1 tsp vanilla,
- 1/2 cp brown sugar,
- 1/2 cp cane sugar,
- 1/3 cp agave all mixed together in medium bowl.
- 1 cp brown rice flour,
- 1 cp quinoa flour
- 1/4 cp flax meal flour,
- 1 tbsp baking soda,
- 1/8 tsp salt together.
Mix dry into wet, then add chocolate chips (I use minis). Preheat oven 350. I make TBSP sized drop cookies and bake 10 minutes. It makes roughly two dozen.
You can drop TBSP balls and flatten gently with fingers if you want them to look more uniform, I do free form and they look like haystacks until they bake, then they fluff out. The kids seem to love them and don’t realize they are healthier and full of Omegas.
I personally like the taste of brown sugar which is molasses with white sugar so if you want to make this recipe “cleaner” simply omit the brown sugar and use more cane sugar – you can also add molasses instead. Play around with the recipe and make it your own!
