Allergy-Friendly Chocolate Chip Cookies with Maple Butter are such a treat! A little crunchy and a little chewy at the same time. And the maple drizzle seems to be the perfect flavor combination; at least for me anyway. You will have to let me know what you think.
To be perfectly honest, I’m crazy about these cookies. I wasn’t sure at first if I was going to like them. Truth be told, I made this recipe five times adjusting the flour, liquids, and fat. I ended up with this crunchy cookie that almost seems to enhance the flavor of the chocolate chips.
This allergy-friendly and vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe was adapted from an old recipe my husband’s aunt shared with me quite a few years ago. We enjoyed talking about recipes and especially sweets!
Our aunt was following a low-fat diet and counting weight watcher points. She knew about my food sensitivities and wondered if these cookies would be something I could eat. I made some adjustments for my dietary needs, but I never did get to share my version with her. Good memories though.
I make my own oat flour placing gluten-free old fashioned oats in my Vitamix or blender. Mix on high until oats look like flour. It may take stopping the machine and giving the oats a stir here and there. It’s a quick and easy process.
The maple butter drizzle is optional but I must tell you, it is the perfect blend with these cookies. The maple butter has zero fat and firms up like icing. It’s best to add the maple drizzle the day you plan on serving them or store the drizzled cookies in the freezer. Don’t worry they defrost quickly since they are thin or you can eat them frozen like I do : )
There are 2 weight watcher points for each cookie without nuts and maple butter. With nuts and 1/2 tablespoon of maple butter, each cookie has 3.5 points.
