75g [13 cup] brown sugar
1 medium [1 medium] egg, beaten
12 tsp [12 tsp] vanilla extract
70g [12 cup] brown rice flour

  1. Line baking sheets with non-stick baking paper.
  2. Put fat and sugars into a large mixing bowl and cream together, beating well until smooth.
  3. Slowly beat in the egg and vanilla extract. The mix may start to curdle a bit but this will disappear when the dry ingredients are added.
  4. Add the sifted flours, cacao powder, coffee granules, baking soda and baking powder to the mix and then stir well to fully combine all of the ingredients. Finally add the chocolate chips and stir in gently.
  5. Place tablespoonfuls of mixture onto the prepared baking trays. Ensure that the mixture is spaced out well as the cookies will spread during baking.
  6. Bake for 14-16 minutes, until just firm to the touch.
  7. Remove cookies from oven and allow to cool on baking tray for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire baking rack to fully cool before storing in an airtight container.

These cookies can be eaten slightly warm or cold. They keep well for 2-3 days in an airtight container.
