You can thank Gwyneth Paltrow for these babies, as I found the recipe in one of her old Goop newsletters. When I made them I used normal flour because I'm not gluten free and I managed to find the other unfamiliar ingredients at my local health food shop.
They were surprisingly nice and chewy, and most surprising of all was the fact that even husband liked them! He doesn't exactly have a sweet tooth so double chocolate chip cookies are not generally his thing, but he liked these. And if you happen to have vegan friends like I do, they're worth trying.
