to bake - Salt ’n’ Pepper Chocolate Chip Cookies from My New Roots
These cookies take me back to one of my best random last minute crazyness and most deliciousness moments ever!
They made us cry with laughter, kept us going through the night, amazeballs and delirious quotes!
Black pepper, salt and chocolate make up the best combination!
And so do these two!

1⁄3 cup / 80ml coconut oil
1⁄3 cup / 80ml brown rice syrup
2 tablespoons water or milk of your choice (nut, seed, rice, goat . . . )
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
21⁄2 cups / 250g gluten-free rolled oats
1⁄2 cup / 75g coconut sugar
1⁄2 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1⁄2 cup / 70g chopped organic dark chocolate (80% or higher)
Flaky sea salt
1. Preheat the oven to 325°F / 162°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan over low-medium heat.
Whisk in the brown rice syrup, water, and vanilla. Remove from the heat.
3. Blend the oats in a food processor until you have a rough flour.
Transfer it to a large bowl and add the coconut sugar, salt, pepper,
baking soda, and baking powder. Stir to combine. Add the coconut
oil mixture to the dry ingredients and fold to combine. Fold the chocolate into the batter.
4. Spoon out balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving at least 2 inches / 5cm between them (they spread a lot!). Garnish each cookie with a few flakes of sea salt. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from the oven, let sit on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, and then transfer to a cooling rack. Store the cookies in a tightly sealed container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
