Looking for a crunchy chocolate chip healthy(ish) biscuit then look no further. Cookies/biscuits are a very personal thing and I find what I want from a cookie changes depending on my mood. Sometimes I want a soft gooey cookie and other times a crunchy biscuit, a dunkable, sandwichable, crumbles when you eat biscuit.
I have developed my gooey recipe which I adore but recently I have been all about the crunchy biscuit, so I have been working on this recipe and again focusing on making it as healthy as possible while still being naughty and delicious. So these are my vegan, gluten-free, refined-sugar-free and super easy chocolate chip biscuits. They have been my go to treat for this past month, I made a huge batch and put them in the freezer and have been grabbing one out each morning for my mid morning snack, they are heavenly with a cup of tea
They are a firmer, cruncher cookie so they travel well and they make for excellent dunking and are pretty insane to dip into chocolate icing, ice cream and mousse. These cookies even pass the husband test, my husband can eat everything no intolerances. He loves all my savory foods but getting him to choose my refined sugar free options is not always a success but these are a winner.
