If you haven’t tried chocolate and chipotle together yet, you have been depriving yourself of an amazing flavor combination.
It may be a Green Eggs and Ham kind of thing, but if you try these Gluten-free Double Chocolate Chipotle Cookies you may find you do in fact love the combination too.
These were a last minute creation when I found I was out of powdered sugar for Flourless Chocolate Cookies with a Kick.
What I did find in my cupboard was a small bag of Coconut flour. Substitute in hand I changed the recipe and found this less sweet option to be gluten-free cookie perfection. The batter was the same consistency as my favorite version that uses flour…Double Chocolate Chipotle Cookies.
This gluten-free option was just as wonderful and tender textured as the original. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
