Method

Dry mix

– Chop up the chocolate into chips

– Crush the tortilla chips with your hands into little bits

– In a bowl, mix the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, chocolate chips and ¼ of the crushed chips with a whisk until it’s all combined. Set aside for later…

Wet mix

– Heat up the coconut oil just enough to make it liquid

– In a bowl, mix the sugars, coconut oil, water, vanilla essence and vinegar and whisk until everything is combined. 

Cookie dough

– Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well until it’s all combined

– Cover the bowl and let it rest for at least an hour in the fridge 

– Scoop about 50g of dough with a spoon or an ice cream scoop. Roll the dough on the crushed tortilla chips and press so they stick on the dough

– Preheat the oven to 180ºC. While it preheats, put the cookie balls in the freezer for about 10min

– Line a tray with baking paper and pop on the cookie balls

– Bake for about 12mins

– Let the cookies cool down for around 30min so they set (if you can resist!).
