I crave cookies more than most other foods (the only thing that tops cookies, is cheese!) so I was excited and prepared to be upset by this recipe. Most paleo desserts are OK, but still leave you missing the original. These chocolate chip cookies are probably the best I’ve ever had!!! And my mum agrees (if you know her, you know that’s a big deal).
1 Cup Almond Flour
¼ Cup Coconut Flour
1 Tsp Baking Soda
¼ Tsp Salt
6 Tbsp Coconut Oil (at room temperature, refrigerate if it is liquid)
¾ Cup Brown Sugar (Coconut Sugar can be used as well)
6 Tbsp Almond Butter
1 ½ Tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Large Egg
1 ¼ Cup Paleo Chocolate Chips (you can use semi-sweet)
Preheat oven to 350°F
In a large bowl, mix together (using handheld mixer or standing mixer) the Coconut Oil and Brown sugar until combined.
Add Almond Butter, Vanilla, and Egg and mix well.
Add in dry ingredients and mix until all ingredients are combined. If Coconut Sugar was used, place bowl in fridge for an hour or until cookie dough is firm (this is not necessary when Brown Sugar is used).
Place Parchment Paper or Silpat mat on cookie sheet so the cookies don’t stick to the bottom.
I make 8-12 large cookies (so I wouldn’t be tempted to grab a few, one is good enough) with this recipe and cooked them for 15 minutes in the oven. I left them to cool completely on the cookie sheet to continue cooking throughout. If you have an older oven, you may need to keep them in the oven a few minutes longer. If you make smaller cookies or use coconut sugar, you’ll need to adjust the time they are in the oven (set a timer for 12 minutes and keep an eye on them).
Let me know how they turned out in the comments! Happy Baking!!
I am unfortunately allergic to a lot of foods so I have to get creative when I don't want to miss out on some favorite meals. I cannot take credit for these pancakes as I found them via Sam Heughan.. Yes, the actor. No, I don’t know him. But these are so good, you may not even miss your usual flour pancakes!
2 Egg Whites
Coconut Oil (for frying pan)
Mix all ingredients together (I use a handheld blender).
Heat Coconut Oil in frying pan and move it around so it covers the bottom (you usually won’t see any residue but the oil will spread and do its job).
Pour the pancake mixture in the frying pan and cover on medium heat.
When the pancake has cooked all the way through, you can slide it onto a plate and flip it back into the frying pan to lightly brown the other side (or flip it if you’re cool like that).
I have small 6” frying pans that I use (an 8” pan would work great as well or a muffin tin to make mini breakfast muffins).
Some days I want to be a little more creative and add coconut or paleo chocolate chips into the mix (like the one pictured next to the ingredients).
I usually add a dollop of lactose free yogurt (that I mix with some protein powder or powdered peanut butter), add some maple syrup or honey, some berries, paleo granola, and I have an incredibly filling and satisfying meal!
