Maca Chocolate Chip Cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time:  20 minutes | Serves: 12-15 cookies


1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour blend (you can use a pre-made blend or make your own with a combination of gluten-free flours like almond flour, brown rice flour, and tapioca flour)

1/4 cup Earths Basket Cacao Powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup Earths Basket Cacao Nibs

1/4 cup Earths Basket Cacao butter

1/2 cup Earths Basket Coconut Sugar or other granulated sweetener of choice

1/4 cup maple syrup or agave nectar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon Earths Basket Maca Powder

1/2 cup dairy-free chocolate chips (for vegan version) OR regular chocolate chips (for non-vegan version)


Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


In a mixing bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour blend, cacao powder, baking soda, and salt.


In a separate bowl, combine the melted cacao butter, coconut sugar, maple syrup (or agave nectar), vanilla extract, and maca powder. Mix well until all ingredients are incorporated.


Gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients, stirring until a thick dough forms. Fold in the cacao nibs and chocolate chips.


Scoop tablespoon-sized portions of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Gently flatten each cookie with the back of a spoon or your hand.


Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are slightly golden. The cookies will be soft when they come out of the oven but will firm up as they cool.


Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.


Enjoy your delicious Maca Chocolate Chip Cookies! Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to one week.

Note: Maca powder has a distinct flavor, so if you're not familiar with it, you might want to start with a smaller amount and adjust to your taste preferences. Additionally, always check the labels of your ingredients to ensure they are gluten-free and vegan if that's your dietary preference.
