Gluten-free peanut butter & chocolate chip cookies

gluten free chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies

Makes 25

  • 200 g dairy-free margarine, (suitable for baking), plus extra for greasing

  • 100 g crunchy peanut butter

  • 200 g golden caster sugar

  • 200 g gluten-free plain flour

  • 200 g ground almonds

  • 2 large free-range eggs

  • 125 g dairy-free milk chocolate

Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 4. Grease two large baking trays with a little margarine and line with greaseproof paper.



In a bowl, beat the margarine, peanut butter and sugar for around 5 minutes, or until light and fluffy. Beat the eggs in a separate bowl, then fold into the mixture with the flour and ground almonds. Roughly chop and fold through the chocolate.



Place heaped teaspoons of the mixture onto the prepared trays, leaving a rough 4cm gap between each. Lightly pat the mixture to flatten slightly, then pop in the hot oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden. Leave to cool for 5 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Serve with a glass of cold milk or a nice cup of tea.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
