Cookies! Yup, that explains it all, I mean who can say no to yummy chewy decadent cookies? And they are also healthy? Bingo! 🙂
These cookies are incredibly satisfying and also freeze well so they can last you for a couple of months, while still maintaining its soft and chewy texture.
I actually made these for a friend, but you bet I ate a few pieces, I mean I have to sample my product right? 😉 I used hazelnut flour in this recipe and it gave these cookies a unique and fragrant flavour, which is a good break from the typical almond and coconut flour cookies.
Recipe: adapted from the Paleo Indulgences cookbook, makes 12 cookies
2 1/4 cups organic hazelnut flour
2 tbsp organic arrowroot starch
3/4 tsp gluten/aluminum free baking soda
Pinch of sea salt
2 organic cage free eggs
2 tsp organic pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup organic pure maple syrup
1/4 cup organic coconut oil (melted)
1/2 cup organic dark chocolate chunks (I used Enjoy Life brand)
Pre-heat oven to 350°.
Place dry ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk well to combine.
Add in the wet ingredients, except the coconut oil, to the dry and blend well with a hand mixer or a wooden spoon.
Slowly pour in coconut oil while mixing and blend well.
Stir in chocolate chunks.
Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until edges are browned and center is set.
Let cookies cool for 5 minutes and enjoy!
