You'd Never Believe These Are GF Cookies

IMG_5660.jpg

These were legit so good that I made them twice over the course of two days because I wanted to share them with everyone since I basically ate the first batch to myself #whoops.

Out of all of the homemade GF cookies I’ve made, these are definitely the gooiest, most flavorful (savory and sweet) and actually have a chewy texture, unlike the scone-like textures other GF recipes often have.

These are dairy-free, gluten-free, guilt-free, baby! JK there’s a good amount of nut butter and sugar, so probably just don’t eat the whole batch like I did if you’re trying to actually fall asleep tonight.

ENJOY!!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (room temperature, not melted!)

  • 1/3 cup nut butter of your choice (I prefer almond - unsalted)

  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar

  • 2 “eggs” - I’m obsessed with Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacement because it’s made from just 4 ingredients (you can also use real eggs if you dgaf about these being vegan)

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or just a pinch or two - I usually just put a bit in my hand and sprinkle it in)

  • 1/3 cup coconut flour

  • 2/3 cup dark chocolate chunks OR chop up a dark chocolate bar from Hu Kitchen

  • 1 - 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  • Sea salt flakes to top

DIRECTIONS:

  • Put on the new Lumineers album and light a cozy candle

  • Preheat the oven to 350

  • Grab a large bowl and mix together the coconut oil, nut butter, and coconut sugar.

  • Once that is smooth, mix in the eggs and vanilla.

  • Add in the baking soda, coconut flour, and salt.

  • Taste test the “dough” and decide what else it may need - this is when I add in a dash or two of cinnamon! You could probably add in pumpkin spice too if you wanted to feel more seasonal.

  • Place parchment paper down on your pan and use your tablespoon measuring cup to scoop!

  • You can add on salt flakes here if you’d like or wait to do that after (also you can forego this part completely - but it actually does add a nice balance).

  • Bake for 10 minutes until the cookies are golden - and enjoy!

Hope you love ‘em! Let me know how they turn out!
