CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
I have the BIGGEST sweet tooth and have really become so accustomed to my mom's baking that sometimes I find myself unimpressed with desserts (friend's baking, store bought, restaurant, pastry shop). But, let me clarify - I have yet to find a dessert that I don't eat from any of the aforementioned places and usually find something beyond delicious! I digress...
Who doesn't love chocolate chip cookies?
I can't think of anyone either! When I bake, I try to use ingredients that are healthier and don't make me feel as guilty about eating six cookies in a row. What are "healthier" options you ask...
Now, if you're a skeptic like I once was (I used to roll my eyes when someone mentioned gluten-free - now I'm driving that train), make these cookies and I promise you'll change your mind about healthier ingredients and rid your pantry of white flour and sugar -
(well maybe save some).
You'll end up making two batches,
I'll bet ya!
I did not create this recipe (in my book below), but I do alter it here and there to make it my own and switch it up a bit. For example,
after I use a fork to flatten the cookie balls a bit, I then sprinkle organic coconut flakes on top for a crunchy, delicious finish.
Here you go:
1. almond flour
2. almond meal
3. coconut flour
4. coconut oil
5. organic maple syrup
6. organic vanilla extract
Enjoy the whole batch by yourself, I promise you wont feel guilty! And if you happen to save some for the kids, I promise they won't think they're too "healthy" to eat.
