Made these with egg replacer as we have an egg allergy in the family. I also used dark chocolate chunks instead of chocolate chips. They have been a complete hit

Made these cookies and they’re lovely. Great activity for kids too. My only problem was the consistency when I only used one egg. With two it was perfect. I also expected them to flatten out more but not too bothered about that.

Sadly I was really disappointed with these cookies - not because of the taste, but because they didn't flatten out into cookies during the cooking time and just remained as balls of dough, ending up looking more like rock cakes! Whenever I've made cookies in the past its been with butter or a spread rather than oil - this recipe doesn't specify a type of oil so I just used the veg oil I had to hand, so I don't know if it was that that was the problem. I also found that the dough was extremely dry when I mixed it and so had to add extra oil for the dough to bind. I used all Doves other GF ingredients so not really sure why it didn't work, but after 15 mins of the cooking time I just had to take the cookies out and try and flatten them manually before they looked more like rock cakes. I'm a fairly experienced GF baker and always make sure I'm accurate with quantities when following a new recipe so very disappointed these didn't work.

Hi. Sorry to hear of your disappointment.  We are unsure as to what has gone wrong here with your cookies, using vegetable oil is fine and if it helps please see our YouTube video https://youtu.be/BHecroVIzS0 for extra guidance.  Best wishes, Doves Farm.

Very yummy and easy to make. I swapped the bicarb and xanthan for 1tsp baking powder and they tasted very yummy. Made 7 very large cookies with the above quantities, and will try different combinations with fudge, cranberries, etc next time.
