Flourless Double Chocolate Almond Butter Cookies

 Hello!

I have a recipe for delicious flourless, gluten-free, paleo, vegan COOKIES!

I have been gluten-free for a long, long time and as I am sure you know, that cuts your dessert options in half. On top of that, I try to avoid any processed flours and to be honest, I haven’t found a cookie recipe using coconut, almond, or oat flour that I really like. So when I stumbled upon this recipe from Detoxinista for almond butter blondies, I couldn’t wait to try it! After a successful batch, I got inspired to turn the recipe into double chocolate chip cookies! Yum!

I made one batch of peanut butter cookies and one batch of almond butter cookies. For the almond butter cookies I used cacao powder to make them double chocolate chip! Just use your own cookie preferences to figure out what is best for you!

Let’s get into the recipe:

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 180 degrees C or 375 degrees F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix together your water, chia seeds and vanilla. Give this a few minutes to turn into a gel like consistency.
  3. Once you have your chia egg ready, add in the rest of your ingredients and mix well.
  4. Form cookies on a lined baking sheet and place your toppings over top.
  5. Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes and then let them cool for at least 10 minutes.
  6. Dig in!

Servings: Makes 6-8 cookies
Prep & Cook time: 15 minutes

Hope you try this one out, and can’t express how good this little cooks are!

My Favorite Kale Chips – Spiced Lemon and Tahini

Hello!

As a past potato chip addict (I am glad to say I have kicked this one) I am always searching for “chips” that give me the same satisfaction as potato chips. AND are good for me. I stumbled across kale chips about a year ago and was buying them in Trader Joes and Whole Foods for who knows how much, but it was draining my wallet! So, recently I gained the courage to try making them myself and I am so happy with the results! This recipe is just my favorite currently, I love some heat and to have them baked crispy so feel free to customize how you like! Taste the seasoning and see what you like. Okay let’s get into this recipe!

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius (around 350 degrees F).
  2. Rinse your kale well and remove all the stems. Make sure to dry your kale VERY well, this is essential if you want crispy delicious chips!
  3. In a large bowl combine all your seasonings, lemon juice, tahini and olive oil.
  4. Pour your kale into the bowl and using your hands mix thoroughly until each kale “chip” is covered with seasoning.
  5. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and spread out the kale chips evenly on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 12-16 minutes, flipping the chips over halfway and checking them every 5 minutes or so (they can burn quickly).
  7. Remove your kale chips from the oven, and enjoy!

Servings: Makes 1-2 servings
Prep&Cook Time: 25 minutes

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you give kale chips a try!
