    • 1 Tablespoon Maple Syrup/Rice Malt Syrup
    • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
    • 1/2 Cup plus 2 Tablespoons Milk of choice

    Hot Chocolate Sauce

    • 2 Cups Water
    • 1/4 Cup Maple Syrup Rice Malt Syrup can be substituted but the sauce won't be as sweet
    • 1/4 Cup Cocoa
    • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
    • Dash Salt

      Gluten Free Chocolate Dumplings

      • Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl.
      • Take the coconut oil and rub it into dry ingredients. To do this, use your fingers and rub the coconut oil and the flour mix together.
      • Add the wet ingredients and stir gently until combined.
      • Using a dessert spoon, take heaped spoonfuls of dough and form into balls (dumplings).
      • Repeat with the remaining mixture (you should get 6 or 7).
      • Take a large saucepan and place the water, maple syrup and vanilla in a large saucepan. Add the Cocoa and Arrowroot and whisk til combined. If you want a sweeter sauce add the syrup now. Bring the mixture to the boil then reduce to a simmer.
      • Quicky add the dumplings to the saucepan (trying to make sure they aren't sitting on each other) and put a lid on the saucepan and simmer for 16-18 minutes, or until the dumplings are cooked. DO NOT remove the lid whilst the dumplings are cooking.
      • Serve immediately with whipped cream.
