Double Chocolate Raspberry Cookies

Make a chocolate cookie and add in more chocolate – especially the kind that has a hint of raspberry for a fruity hit – and you get these delicious, good-for-you goodies that I’m sure all of the family will love. Lower sugar than normal ones makes them an ideal option for when you want a sweet treat but without the crazy sugar rush, while still feeling like an indulgence.

Ingredients:

  • 2 bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter (I used Mani Life)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 150g gluten-free flour (I used Dove’s Farm Freee)
  • 30g cocoa powder
  • 70g sweetener (I used Natvia)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 x OhSo Raspberry Bars, cut into small chunks

For the drizzle – 

  • 2 tablespoons smooth nut butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (I used Maple From Canada)
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • Freeze-dried raspberries

Get making!

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C and line a large baking sheet with greaseproof paper.
  2. Place the bananas, eggs, nut butter and vanilla into a food processor and blend well.
  3. Add in the flour, cocoa powder, sweetener and baking powder then blend again until a dough has formed.
  4. Fold in most of the chopped chocolate, saving a few pieces to stick into the top of each flattened cookie (divide the mixture into 12, roll into balls then place on the tray).
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes until risen, firmed up and a nice brown colour. Leave to cool then pop onto a wire rack.
  6. Mix together the nut butter, syrup and cocoa powder then drizzle over each cookie. Sprinkle over freeze-dried raspberries – now enjoy!
