These cookies do not taste like gluten-free, not chewy, just normal cookies which melt in your mouth.
Notes on some of the ingredients
Flour. I used Gluten free flour mixture. Find the recipe here. If you use different mixture cookies it may not turn out as I described – soft and melting in the mouth.
Coconut sugar. You could replace it with turbinado or sucanat sugars. I noticed adding vanilla extract when using these types of sugar does not make a significant difference in taste as those sugars have their own strong flavor. So, I did not add vanilla to these cookies.
Egg. It does not make a noticeable difference to the taste whether you use a pastured or regular egg, but pastured eggs are richer in nutrients. Pastured eggs usually have orange yolks not pale yellow, so this might slightly affect the color of the cookies.
Cacao nibs are unsweetened by nature. They taste like dark chocolate with no added sweeteners. If you want, you can add chopped dark chocolate or even chopped walnuts instead.
