Ingredients

    cup dark brown sugar
    cup sugar
    1 tsp fine sea salt
    cup vegan buttery spread, softened
    cup + 2 tbsp (150mL) dry red wine (I used a Chianti)
    1 tbsp vanilla extract
    cup Dutch processed cocoa powder
    cup sorghum flour
    cup chickpea flour
    cup teff flour
    cup tapioca starch
    1 tbsp ground chia seeds
    1 tsp guar gum
    tsp baking powder
    1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks

Directions

Cream together the sugars, salt and vegan butter until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
Beat in the wine and vanilla.
Beat in the cocoa powder, flours, tapioca starch, chia, guar and baking powder until well combined.
Fold in the chocolate chunks.
Wrap in plastic and chill 1 hour, or freeze up to 4 months.
Scoop 2-tbsp balls of dough 2 apart onto parchment-lined baking sheets and flatten slightly.
Place cookie sheets in the freezer while the oven heats.
Heat the oven to 375 F.
Bake, one sheet at a time, for 8 to 10 minutes, until the centre just becomes firm.
Let cool on the baking sheet.
