Chocolate Arrowroot Cookies (No Gluten, No Sugar)
This is a alteration of my Recipe #401548, a ginger version. These are a tasty little chocolate cookie without sugar or grains. If you didn't want nuts, you could leave them out but might want a bit more arrowroot. These are mixed all in the saucepan you start with and are so good I usually make a double batch.
- Ready In:
- 55 g butter
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 20 g almonds
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 80 g arrowroot
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- Melt the butter and honey in a medium saucepan.
- Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients.
- Allow to stand. If after 5-10 minutes the dough is not firm, add a bit more arrowroot.
- Roll into small balls and bake at 350°F/170°C for 10-15 minutes.

This recipe is confusing. It calls for "20 g almonds." Does that mean ground up? Well, that's what I did. I find that most cookie recipes are too sweet, but this one isn't nearly sweet enough. These cookies have a bitter, chalky taste. I've made other cookies with arrowroot before, like those in "Nourishing Traditions," and they are good. These cookies are not—they have way too much arrowroot. I won't be making these again.Replies 1
Very rich, deep chocolate flavor. I added 1 square of 90 percent chocolate and they turned out absolutely perfect for my tastebuds :) You have to like chocolate cookies which are not very sweet, otherwise you might be disappointed. This will be a keeper for me. Thanks for posting! Made for Comfort Cafe Snowqueen's Round 2010.2Reply
