Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups gluten free flour divided
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbs cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup raspberries, pureed (yields 1/3 cup raspberry puree)

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, mix together 1 3/4 cups flour, baking powder, and salt. (You’ll use the other 1/2 cup flour later.)
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together the egg, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
  • Add the flour mixture and mix to combine. Remove half the dough from the mixing bowl and set aside.
  • Add the cocoa powder and 2 tablespoons of water. Mix until you have a uniformly brown dough. The batter should be quite thick. Add another tablespoon or two of flour if needed.
  • Place the chocolate dough in a covered container and refrigerate for an hour.
  • Clean the bowl and place the remaining dough in the bowl. Add the raspberry puree and the remaining 1/2 cup of flour. Mix until well combined. Again, the batter should be quite thick. Place the pink dough in an airtight container in the refrigerator for an hour.
  • Roll out each section of dough into a 10 x 14 inch rectangle (1/4 inch thick). Place the raspberry rectangle on top of the chocolate rectangle and roll it lengthways into the shape of a log (14 inches long).
  • Cut the dough into two pieces (keeping the log shape) and cover with plastic wrap. Freeze for 2 hours.
  • When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Slice the dough into 1/3 inch thick cookies and bake on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
