      Chocolate Chip Cookies

      • Preheat the oven to 175C/350F.
      • Line and grease 2 baking trays.
      • Place the maple syrup, egg and vanilla extract into a blender and mix (this can also be done in a kitchen stand mixer or by hand).
      • Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
      • Add the coconut oil and mix until the dough comes together.
      • Add the chocolate chips and gently stir through.
      • Spoon 1 Tablespoon of cookie dough onto the greased tray and flatten slightly.
      • Repeat with the remaining cookie dough (it will make 14-16 cookies), placing the cookies 2cm /1 inch apart to allow for spreading. Use both trays.
      • Place the cookies in the fridge for 20 minutes before baking.
      • Bake, 1 tray at a time, for 12-14 minutes.
      • Allow to cool on the tray.
      • The cookies will firm upon cooling.

      Chocolate Chips

      • Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan over a very low heat.
      • Stir in the Cocoa and maple syrup (vanilla if using).
      • Allow to thicken slightly.
      • Pour the Chocolate into a small lined baking tray and freeze for 1 hour.
      • Remove the Chocolate from the freezer and break into large pieces.
      • Place the pieces in a zip lock freezer bag.
      • Using a rolling pin, hammer, your feet etc bang the bag until the pieces are broken into smaller pieces.
      • Use immediately or refreeze for later use.
      • Alternatively, use a sharp knife and a cutting board to cut the chocolate into small pieces (this is the more grown up way to make Choc-chips).
      • Use immediately or refreeze for later use.
