Chocolate, Fudge & Orange Cookies

Chocolate, Fudge & Orange Cookies

I love that being healthier really does make you think about how you look after and fuel your body.

This is what inspires me to make healthy sweet treats so I don’t feel like we are missing out. I am hoping that you’ll love my experiment of completely turning the chocolate chip cookie on its head by creating its healthy cousin. The kids loved them & they were all demolished before bedtime. Have a go at making our Chocolate, Fudge & Orange Cookie recipe and tell us what you think.

A chocolate chip cookie is a drop cookie that originated in the United States and features chocolate chips as its distinguishing ingredient. The traditional recipe combines a dough composed of butter and both brown and white sugar with semi-sweet chocolate chips. Variations include recipes with other types of chocolate as well as additional ingredients such as nuts or oatmeal– wiki

 

Ingredients

  • 150g brown rice flour
  • 110g soya butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 orange (you’ll need all the zest)
  • 1 tbsp agave syrup
  • 2 tsp orange blossom water
  • ¼ baking soda
  • ¼ xanthan gum
  • 85g gluten free dark chocolate
  • 200g gluten free fudge

 

Instructions

  1. Pre heat the oven to 170 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine the soya butter and agave syrup until it is mixed well.
  2. Add the flour, orange blossom water and ¾ of the orange zest. Mix it well, then add the egg and continue to mix it.
  3. Take 9 squares of the chocolate bar and set them aside. With the remaining chocolate, roughly chop it up and then add it to the cookie mixture and mix it in.
  4. Roughly chop all of your fudge. Add the baking soda and xanthan gum to the cookie mixture first and stir it a little. Then add all of your fudge making sure it’s fully mixed into your cookie dough.
  5. Now you’re ready to start rolling your cookie dough into small balls. When you have rolled them all, place them onto a lined baking tray. Before you place them into the oven gently press down on them with the back of a spoon.
  6. Place them in the oven and cook them for 15-20 minutes or until they are brown
  7. Once they are cooked. Place them on a wire rack to cool down. Whilst they are cooling down, put the remaining chocolate into a mixing bowl and gradually melt it over a pan of hot water.
  8. Once the chocolate is fully melted, using a small spatula coat half of your cookies on one side then set it back onto the wire rack and garnish with some orange zest.
  9. When all your cookies have been decorated, pop them on a plate. And enjoy them with a cup of tea.
