If you loved the Gluten free Chocolate Beetroot Cake, then you will adore these cookies! Like the beetroot cake, these cookies are a great way to get our kids to eat beets without realizing them because they’re hidden inside the cookies and chocolate. They will surely go crazy!

I used gluten-free self-rising flour, but if you don’t have it, add baking powder. (see 💡).

I recommend the big ones so you can take one with you for a snack at school or at office.

Ideal for kid’s parties.

These soft cookies are perfect for making ice cream sandwiches in the summer months. Also use them as a base for 3 -minute Gluten Free Mini Cheesecakes with only 4 ingredients” (see recipe here).

The recipe I give you below has relatively little sugar and they are not that sweet. You can add more sugar or sprinkle them with icing sugar or even better decorate with the pink cream that I put on some cookies is the ” Buttercream with Berries ” that I also made on the “Gluten free Chocolate Beetroot Cake” (see the recipe here).

Chocolate Beetroot Gluten Free Soft Cookies
  • The cookies are not sweet enough. If you want you can even double the quantity of the sugar.
  • Instead of icing sugar, you can put granulated sugar. But with the icing sugar, the dough becomes a little firmer and you can make the cookies more easily.
  • If you don’t have self-rising flour, use gluten-free pastry flour and add 1/2 tbsp. baking powder for every 250 g. flour.If you don’t have self-rising flour, use gluten-free pastry flour and add 1/2 tbsp. baking powder for every 250 g. flour.
  • The pink cream that I put on some cookies is the ” Buttercream with Berries ” that I also made on the “Gluten free Chocolate Beetroot Cake” (see the recipe here).
  • If you make them smaller, therefore more, you should reduce the baking time a little depending on the size.
  • Every oven heats different. My new oven is slower than the old one. The time I’m giving in every recipe is approximately. Watch them as they baking and adapt the time.

Good Luck and Bon Appétit!!!
