- 1 stick butter (1/2 cup) (4oz/ 110g)
- 1 tablespoon milk (or almond milk)
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 1/3 cups (7.5 ounces) gluten-free all-purpose flour (recipe recommends for best results to use one that contains xanthan gum)
- 1/4 cup (1 ounce) almond flour ( I just used ground almonds)
- 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- Sea salt for sprinkling (optional)
In a medium bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour, almond flour, baking soda and salt until evenly combined. Set aside.
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter is melted start to whisk constantly. First the butter will begin to foam, then after a couple of minutes it will begin to brown on the bottom of the saucepan. Turn off the heat as soon as the solids turn brown and the butter gives off a nutty aroma. Pour into a glass mixing bowl to prevent burning.
Add the milk, brown sugar and white sugar. Whisk to combine. Add the egg and vanilla and whisk until smooth and creamy.
Using a rubber spatula, mix in the dry ingredients until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Cover the bowl and let sit for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180C. Scoop the cookie dough (about 1 dessert spoons of dough per cookie) and place a few inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden and the centre is set.
Let cool 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
