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!

Lets Get Started!

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. This recipe is relatively simple but to start off, add all your ingredients except for your chocolate chips into a mixing bowl. Mix well until everything is well combined.
  2. In a microwave safe dish, melt your chocolate chips down, and pour the chocolate into the batter. Mix until your batter is sticky.
  3. Make sure your hands are clean and moistened with some water (this helps the dough not stick) and roll the balls into equally sized balls.
  4. Pour some coconut flakes onto a plate and roll the balls into the coconut until they are completely covered. These balls are usually just decorated with coconut but I sometimes drizzle them with some melted chocolate or cover them in cacao nibs, it is up to you!
  5. Place the chocolate balls in the fridge for at least one hour to chill and then enjoy!!

Hope you enjoy this recipe!
