chocolate chip cookies

EVERYONE loves cookies, My little boy always asks me if we can bake together.  I found these online here, they are so simple and actually really nice.  They are gluten free and made with coconut sugar so a lower GI which makes me happier about him scoffing them :)

They remind me a little bit of these cookies we eat at Passover as they are made with almond flour so get that yummy chewy centre and after a day are more squidgy than crunchy but still delicious as a sweet treat without refined processed ingredients.

There is a little sugar in the chocolate chips, but we opted for dark chocolate and you could sub this with nuts, raisins, or whatever you like...

You will need:

  • 2 cups Blanched Almond Flour
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup max coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 handful or less of organic dark chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350.

Mix the almond flour, baking soda, sugar and salt in a bowl. Add the softened butter or coconut oil (or a mix of both) and stir well until mixed. It should form a thick dough that is hard to stir. Add the egg and mix well. This should make the dough more formable and easier to mix. If needed, add a teaspoon or two of milk or water to thin. Finished dough should be easy to form.

Add chocolate chips and stir by hand until incorporated. Form dough into tablespoon size balls and bake for 10 minutes or until tops are starting to be golden brown. The centers will be somewhat soft, but they will continue to harden once they are removed.

Let cool at least 5 minutes and serve.
