Snow Day, and the best grain-free, vegan chocolate chip cookies… in the universe.

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!

Ingredients:

  • 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.
