Easy gluten free chocolate cookies

This is my very first gluten free recipe.
I must admit, our family does not have a gluten intolerance, but given that we have guests over on a weekly basis, I started to experiment with gluten free desserts, to make when we do have people over that are on a gluten free diet.

That said, these are so good, and with ingredients like coconut oil and brown rice flour, I feel good about feeding them to my family.

INGREDIENTS:

2 eggs
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup brown rice flour (I grind my own)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
3.5 oz dark chocolate (100gr bar)
Pinch of salt


DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 350F.

In a safe microwave dish, over 45 second intervals and stirring the chocolate in between and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, add the eggs, sugar, vanilla, coconut oil and mix until combine. 
Then add the melted chocolate and mix.
Add the brown rice flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder.

When finished, scoop cookie batter on baking sheets about 2 inches apart. 
Made 22 cookies. Bake for 10 minutes. 
Do not overcook.

Stay Frugal,
Daniela

I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday season.
I still have my parents here with us, and have enjoyed having them for the last month.

Those look good! I know that Kim is on a gluten free diet these days. I bet she would like to try those.

I wonder if they would work with xylitol or erithrytol instead of sugar? I might try them...you know what tastes good. : )

If I'm ever going to try gluten-free...better to start with chocolate! These look delicious. A month is a long time to have company, glad it people you love!

Dearest Daniela,
So clever for grinding your own brown rice flour; super tip!
As for the sugar I will substitute with Coconut sugar from Trader Joe's.
Perfect all together and thanks a lot!
Hugs,
Mariette

Those look amazing. They are probably healthier too. You're sweet to think of your guests.
