Rice flour chocolate cookies with pomegranate (gluten-free, low-sugar)

To continue the series of recipes with pomegranate, this week I am publishing an easy cookie recipe, gluten-free and perfect for dark chocolate lovers! These cookies are garnished with a lot of pomegranate seeds, they are not very sweet and have a strong chocolate flavour ; I served them warm with plenty of honey on top! In this way, all the flavours and different textures really come together nicely!

Tips.

1. For the kids dip them in milk, because they have a strong dark chocolate flavour.

2. For a low-sugar recipe don’t add the honey on top of the cookies, just follow the recipe.
