Greetings from the snow bunker, friends! I’ve been working nonstop, so this is a nice little break to the madness. In the heat of this frigid winter day, what more could you want than a warm chocolate cookie? The answer: to not feel bad about eating it. This grain free cookie is free of processed sugar and happens to also be vegan, which shocked me. Enjoy!
- 1 cup almond flour
- pinch of salt
- half to three quarters of a tea spoon of baking soda
- teaspoon vanilla
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
- 2-3 tablespoons agave, honey, or maple syrup
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon water or almond/ coconut milk
- Enjoy Life dairy free soy free chocolate chips
Blend all ingredients, then add the chocolate chips. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees. Cookies will not look done, but check the bottoms – if they are brown, they are good to take out. Let cool and settle for at least 5 minutes. Cookies will stay nice and soft if you don’t want to eat them right away. This recipe only makes about 9 cookies; so double the recipe if you’re sharing with friends! Enjoy with a nice glass of unsweetened almond milk – DELICIOUS!
Hint: use the same recipe with cinnamon and raisins for a nice oatmeal type cookie.
Took this photo last week after making them on another cold and snowy evening. The cookies do not need to be large to be delicious.
