Rice flour C H O C O L A T E cookies

I was searching for a nice baking recipe to use rice flour with and I found these delicious chocolate cookies. Rice flour is gluten free, which makes it much kinder to our digestive system. This recipe comes from EatGood4Life blog, with small changes by me. Ask your kids to help make these, they are very easy and fun to do together.

Prep time 10 minutes, baking 10-12 minutes, depending on how big you will shape your cookies you should get around 20

2 organic eggs
1/2 cup of olive oil
1 teaspoon of good quality vanilla extract
3/4 cup of brown sugar or coconut sugar (it's very similar to brown sugar, but with a hint of caramel)
1 and 1/2 cups of rice flour (best to use brown rice flour if not just rice flour will work well too)
1/2 cup of cocoa powder
1 teaspoon of baking soda
half of the bar of a dark chocolate bar
pinch of sea salt

Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees. Line a baking try with baking paper. In a bowl place the dark chocolate chunks and put it over a boiling pot to melt. In a separate mixing bowl add eggs, sugar and oil and mix until combined. Next add your melted chocolate and vanilla extract, keep mixing. Add the remaining ingredients - rice flour, baking soda, pinch of salt, cocoa powder and keep mixing until all is combined together. With a tablespoon scoop out a dollop of cake mix onto the baking tray and shape to a round blob, gently press with your fingers to flatten it slightly. Bake in the middle of the oven for 10-12 minutes - the cookies will still feel quite soft, but take them out, place on the cooling rack and once they cool down they will get a firmer consistency.
Chocolate is always a good idea and as far as I'm concerned it's healthy too!
