Ingredients
  

  • 1 ½ cups gluten free flour blend * see note
  • ¾ cup almond flour * see note
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cocoa powder * see note
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup + 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • powdered sugar for rolling the dough balls.

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350º F.
  • In a large bowl, add dry ingredients and whisk to blend.
  • In a small bowl, add all wet ingredients and whisk to blend.
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix.
  • Add Andes Chocolate pieces and mix.
  • Scoop a little dough and roll with your hands into a ball shape.
  • Roll the ball in powdered sugar and place on parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • When all of the dough is made into these balls, flatten them to ½ inch thickness with your hand.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove onto a cooling rack.

Notes

  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain Xanthan Gum or Guar Gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. If you want to reduce the sugar, you can skip rolling the cookies in powdered sugar.
  4. To make this recipe dairy-free, substitute the butter for vegan butter.
  5. I highly suggest using almond flour and not almond meal. Almond meal is more coarse and will make your donuts grainy.
  6. To make this recipe nut-free, omit the almond flour and substitute an additional ½ cup gluten free flour blend.
  7. These cookies will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
