I was on a mission. My munching mission was to pretty much ‘free’ the classic choc-chip cookie for those who have food sensitivities. I wanted to tantalise my taste buds and twist tradition with a treat that was gluten-free, egg-free, cane sugar-free, and dairy-free. After a few flops, I came up with these super-duper easy to make cookies. Oh, and did I mention that they’re absolutely not flavour-free? Happy ‘free’ baking!
1.5 cups of brown rice flour
¼ teaspoon of sea salt
½ teaspoon of baking powder
½ cup chopped walnuts
½ cup chopped sugar-free 70% dark chocolate
½ cup maple syrup
1/3 cup grapeseed oil
1 teaspoon of finely grated orange zest
1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed orange juice
Nutrition Bite: Oranges – It’s no secret that oranges are loaded with Vitamin C to help boost the immune system, support collagen production and keep healthy gums. Vitamin C also aids iron absorption so it’s a good idea when consuming foods high in iron, to have a food rich in Vitamin C either with or straight after a meal. Squeeze an orange cookie in after dinner perhaps…it may just count.
