Espresso Chocolate Chip Cookies


* 2 heaping cups unbleached white flour
* 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
* 2 teaspoons guar gum
* 2 tablespoons baking powder
* 1 tablespoon baking soda
* 1 tablespoon potato starch
* 1/2 tablespoon tapioca starch
* 1 teaspoon lecithin powder
* Dash sea salt
* 3/4 cup margarine
* 1 cup sugar
* 1/3 cup brown rice syrup
* 1/3 cup white grape juice concentrate
* 1/4 cup spring water
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 cup espresso chocolate chips (dairy free)

Cream together margarine and sugar then add remaining liquid ingredients and chocolate chips. In separate bowl throughly mix, or sift, flour and other dry ingredients. Slowly mix flour mixture into margarine mixture.

Roll into 2 centimeter / 3/4 inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 180C/350F for 10 minutes or until very lightly browned. Let cool for a minute or two then transfer to wax paper.

The recipe itself tastes very delicious! I wonder, when this cookies will get baked, it will smell so sweet and wonderful. I am crazy for cheese layer which you mentioned that we can add, I guess increases the softness in the cafe. Too much mouth-watering one! Also, I like vanilla and orange/ lemon flavour, but as this is something new, gonna surely try for it.
