After having cravings for chocolate chip cookies, I thought I better find a recipe and fast! This is not an original recipe, since I don’t do much baking. I found this recipe in the Alive Magazine, but I tweaked it a lot to suit my taste! First of all, I really cut down the sugar, even if it was Palm Sugar, sugar is sugar. I mean, how much sugar is really necessary? I don’t like to feel like my teeth are rotting when I’m eating my desert! That way, I can eat more, right?
Also, Walnuts work great in this recipe as well, so if you’re not a Ginger lover, feel free to put chopped Walnuts instead!
Here is my well tweaked recipe, hope you like it!
1/2 cup Almond butter
2 tbsp Coconut Palm Sugar
2 med org Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla
3 tbsp Coconut Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 cup Chocolate Chips
3 tbsp Candied Ginger, rinsed well and finely chopped
1/4 cup Walnuts, chopped
In a bowl, add Almond Butter and sugar and mix well
Add Eggs and vanilla and beat well
Fold in Flour, baking soda and Salt
It will be thick and dense at this point
Add Chocolate Chips, Ginger or Walnuts and blend well
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a cookie sheet with Coconut Oil
Scoop out dough with a teaspoon, roll into a ball and place on the sheet
Repeat, leaving a couple of inches between
When your done rolling, take a fork, dip it in water and flatten out each ball
I made 20 cookies that were about 2 1/2 in diameter
Bake at 350F for 14 – 15 min
