There is one thing in this world that I simply cannot pass up; cookies.
There is something about the whole experience involved with making, baking, and eating cookies. The aroma that lingers throughout the house, the smell of the sides perfectly browning, and the warmth of the chocolate dripping down your fingers.
However since my recent lifestyle change, and my continuous effort to eating healthy…it was time to try and find a cookie alternative. I have tried numerous recipes, researched multiple pins, and tried even creating a few of my own. However, this recipe from one of my favorite bloggers (Georgie Stevenson) takes first place.
Note: They are soy free, dairy free, grain free, gluten free and refined sugar-free
- 1 egg (room temp)
- 1/4 cup smooth almond butter
- 1 tbsp coconut oil (melted, room temp)
- 2 – 3 tbsp coconut sugar (depending on how sweet you want it)
- 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips or break your favorite refined sugar-free chocolate up and use that.
- Pre-heat the oven to 325’F.
- Mix the almond butter, coconut oil, coconut sugar, maple, egg and vanilla together until smooth (I used a food processor but can use a beater or mix well by hand).
- In a separate bowl, mix the almond flour, coconut flour, and baking soda.
- Combine the dry ingredients into the wet until the dough is formed.
- Add chocolate chips at the end using a spoon.
- Wait 5 mins for the dough to be less sticky.
- Scoop dough evenly onto a tray lined with baking paper. It should make 8-10 cookies. Cookies will spread a bit so leave room between each one.
- Bake for about 10-14 mins in the preheated oven, or until cookies are set.
- Remove from oven and allow to sit on cookie sheet for 5 mins, then enjoy!!
- I left mine in the fridge and should last a week
