Healthier cookies = more cookies for everyone. Raw cookies are naturally the healthiest choice, but I don’t always like eating gooey, cold things. No offense raw brownies (my one true love). Don’t get me wrong, raw cookies and desserts reserve a special ginormous place in my heart, but sometimes I just need a warm, crunchy cookie. Like, with CRUMBS AND STUFF. Ya know?
I scored big time with this recipe. It happened kind of like this: I was craving chocolate chip cookies, I went into the kitchen and threw a bunch of things in a bowl, baked it, it came out as cookies, they were amazing, they were gone, the end. The best part about the whole thing is that they are healthy cookies! No grains, no refined sugar, no dairy, and no eggs. (Not that all of those things are necessarily unhealthy…ahem.) They are delightfully nutty, not too sweet, and crunchy-chewy at the same time. I’m in love.
Vegan Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
A healthy grain-free vegan chocolate chip cookie that is crunchy, chewy, and perfectly sweet. The best part is they actually fill you up because they are made with real ingredients.
1flax egg(1 TB flax meal + 3 TB warm water whisked and let sit for 5 mins)
1/4-1/2cupmelted coconut oil or vegan butter(cooled to room temperature)
1/2cupvegan chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line cookie sheet with parchment or silpat baking mat. Make your flax egg and let sit. If making your own, go ahead and make your almond & cashew meal by whizzing almond and cashews in a food processor until you get a fine meal.
Whisk together all dry ingredients in a bowl. Whisk together all wet ingredients in a separate bowl, then incorporate into the dry mix until combined.
Scoop cookies, about a heaping Tbsp, and flatten by hand or with utensil (they don't melt down like some cookies). Bake for about 10-12 minutes until the edges are golden brown. Let cool on sheet for five minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
