The other day I decided it was time to make a second dessert food that was completely wheat and processed sugar free. This recipe yielded 13 cookies, and was a total hit with Daniel and myself. If you are looking for a healthy dessert that will curb your craving for sweet baked goods, then this is a must-try.
For this recipe you will need:
- A hand mixer
- 2 medium sized mixing bowls
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 Tbsp arrowroot powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 4 Tbsp butter (substitute with coconut butter if you prefer)
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 Tbsp honey (the original recipe called for raw, but I used regular honey)
- 1/4 cups chocolate chips
In the first bowl, you will add all your dry ingredients and mix. In your second bowl, you’ll beat the butter to soften (if needed), add the egg, vanilla, and honey and mix. Add wet ingredients to your dry ingredients and beat with a hand mixer just until blended. Then fold in your chocolate chips. The original recipe says to refrigerate the batter. I skipped this step entirely, and we all survived.
When I make cookies I line my cookie sheets with parchment paper. It keeps the bottoms of the cookies from burning, and I think it keeps them from getting dry. The batter is on the sticky side, so I just wet my hand with water and applied light pressure.
Bake the cookies at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes tops. Yum! Daniel took some to work, and I enjoyed some at home. I’ve already made the recipe again, and doubled the batch. Enjoy! Let me know how they turn out if you try them out.
