Lantana Foods Recipe Gluten-free Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies

I’m not sure what’s come over me, but I’ve had Holiday baking on my brain lately. I’m usually not a big baker but when I laid eyes on the Lantana Cherry Hummus, I knew it was calling for chocolate – and lots of it! Double chocolate and I knew I had to make these Gluten-free Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies. 

I’ve never used hummus for baking, so I was skeptical at first. But my mind was put completely at ease once I tasted the batter. In my honest opinion, the sign of a good cookie is how yummy the batter tastes – am I right? This batter got my approval, which made me extra excited about these cookies. In this recipe, hummus replaces butter for a soft, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate-y cookie with a subtle cherry flavor. I promise you won’t miss the butter!

Known for their bold-flavored hummus, Lantana Hummus recently expanded into fruit-based hummus. All of their flavors are made with other beans, vegetables and fruit (not chickpeas). They’re non-GMO, vegan, gluten free and kosher and have mango, blueberry and strawbery flavors too!

These Gluten-free Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies make the perfect little Christmas cookie for your cookie exchange, Holiday party or who am I kidding … just sit down and enjoy one with a glass of your favorite milk! They’re gluten-free and lower in sugar than a traditional cookie so, chocolate lovers, you can double up on these Gluten-free Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies!
