The original recipe uses apple sauce, though having run out of apple sauce one time I tried this, I peeled and pureed a nectarine instead and it worked just as well. The xanthan gum allows gluten free flour to be used if required. If using an electric whisk, I recommend mixing no more than half the recipe at a time as the dough clings quite heavily to the whisk.

Ingredients
  • 270 g flour
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 60 ml grapeseed oil
  • 120 ml apple sauce or fruit purée
  • 180 ml maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 200 g chocolate chips
Method
  1. Mix the flour, xanthan gum, bicarbonate of soda, and salt in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
  3. Spoon onto a baking tray using a couple of teaspoons. The mixture does not expand in the oven, so they can be spaced fairly close together.
  4. Bake at 180°C for 8 minutes or until browned on top.
