Gluten-free vegan rice cookies with chocolate chips will be presented by me on Restaurant Day on the 21st of February in St.-Petersburg /Russia/ by the address: Aptekarskii pr. 4, floor 4, the building of loft «Contour Family» (near underground Petrogradskaya) in the café with vegetarian menu «CAFE VEGGIE», which has a wonderful view at Botanical Garden.


  • 2 and 1/4 cup gluten-free mix flour «Mix it!» Schaer
  • 2/3 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 tbsp sunflower / canola oil
  • 1 and 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (the recipe of homemade is here)


  1. Preheat oven to 190°С (375°F).
  2. Cream shortening, oil and sugar in a bowl of a standing mixer.
  3. Add vanilla and water. Mix until combined.
  4. In another bowl mix all the dry ingredients except chocolate.
  5. Add dry mixture to the wet ingredients and beat until smooth.
  6. Add chocolate chips, mix and let the dough sit about 10 minutes.
  7. Form the balls from the dough by hands and place them on a lined baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone carpet. Then flatten each ball and leave enough space between them, because the cookies will become 2-2,5 times bigger during the baking.
  8. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes and allow them to cool a little bit before moving to a plate or cookie jar.
