FODMAP Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are fantastic, soft chewy chocolate chip cookies. They are a great treat for taking to friends or when you have people over as they taste like ordinary cookies just yummier. They are brilliant if you are cooking for a bake sale too as they are suitable for wheat or dairy intolerances so no-one needs to miss out. Butter is very low lactose so fine for FODMAP and you can feel free to use it here, if you like, as it will add great flavour.

1 1/2 cups of all-purpose gluten free flour
1 cup of light brown sugar
1 large egg
2 tablespoons maple syrup or golden syrup
1/4 cup softened butter/vegan spread/sunflower oil (whichever you prefer)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used Green and Blacks dark chocolate chopped up which is dairy free)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1tsp vanilla extract

Makes 24
Heat oven to 180C/375F. Lightly grease two or three large baking sheets with oil spray.

Blend butter, sugar, vanilla extract and egg together with electric whisk in a large bowl. Add salt, baking powder and flour. Blend on low speed until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

Put heaped tsps of mixture on baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake in oven for about 12mins or until cookies are light golden (tip: give the baking tray a bang half-way through cooking to stop the cookies rising up too much and going cakey). Allow to cool for a moment and then transfer to wire rack (this keeps the bottoms crisp). Try not to gobble whole batch at once!
