Zingy Orange Agave Choc Chip Cookies

Its amazing how the zest of one orange can give you so much flavour and zing in these doughy, chewy cookies.

The Ingredients
150ml agave syrup
150ml sunflower oil
2 tablespoons soya milk or lactofree milk to be soya free
1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
Zest of 1 orange
200g rice flour
140g buckwheat flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
100g of xylitol chocolate (broken up in the blender to make Choc Chips)

Makes 20 cookies

The Method
Pre-heat oven to 165oC. Line two baking trays with greaseproof paper.

Whisk together the agave syrup, oil, soya milk, flax seeds, vanilla and orange zest until well mixed and smooth.

Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix into a lump free dough and add in the choc chips.

Drop heaped tablespoons of dough onto the baking trays, use the bake of a clean tablespoon to flatten and space into cookie like structures :)

Bake for 12-14 minutes. Once removed from the oven let them cool a little on the baking trays before putting them on a wire rack to cool completely.

The good thing about using the greaseproof paper is its easy to peel the cookies off while they are still warm.

They will last for about a week in an airtight container.
