Chocolate Chip Cookies make a superb addition to an afternoon tea or just a snack during the day. For these Chocolate Chip Cookies I use psyllium husk just to add some bounce and retain moisture with a slight crunch round the edges of the cookies. I prefer my Chocolate Chip Cookies not to be crunchy all over like a biscuit. too. These cookies are gluten-free too and fun for children to make.
