Chocolate Chip Cookies
June 14, 2013

These biscuits (or cookies) are seriously good and super easy.  They are another Blender recipe!  Beware though… stopping at just one requires great will power.  If you have a  nut allergy in the family or want to take them for school, I’ve provided an alternative as well, (although they’re not quite as good … just don’t tell the kids).  Enjoy!

Preparation:  10 – 15 minutes

Baking time:  approx. 25 minutes

Quantity:  about 12 biscuits or cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies
Ingredients:

  • 150 g or 1 1/2 cups almond meal
  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut
  • 40 g  (or about 2 1/2 – 3 tbsp)  almond oil or coconut oil
  • 45 g (or about 2 tbsp) honey
  • 1/2  teaspoon vanilla bean extract
  • 30g cacao nibs or about 1 – 2 tbsp cacao nibs (optional.  Or use your favourite dark chocolate).

Directions:

  1. Line a baking tray with baking paper and heat the oven to about 130 degrees.
  2. Mix the almond meal, coconut, oil,  sweetener and vanilla together to form a dough.
  3. If the mix is too moist, add more desiccated coconut or if it’s too dry add a bit more oil.
  4. Once the dough is formed, mix in the cacao nibs.
  5. Using a desert spoon scoop a small amount into a ball and then flatten into a biscuit shape.
  6. Allow to cool and enjoy!
  7. Bake in a low 130 – 150 C oven for about 25 minutes until golden.

Allow to cool completely before devouring. Enjoy!

Notes:  

  • If you have a high speed blender, take 1 1/2 cups of whole almonds – pulse and make your almond meal from scratch, (preferably using activated almonds).
  • These could easily be finished in a dehydrator rather than baked in the oven.
  • In place of honey and for a lower fructose sweetener, you can try brown rice malt syrup or coconut syrup.
  • The cacao nibs are bitter to taste, replace with a good quality organic dark chocolate or you can easily leave out altogether.
  • For nut free, I replaced the almond meal with 1 cup of pepitas (activated) and 1/2 cup of desiccated coconut and added an additional 10g of sweetener.

I tried these biscuits at a recent talk you did at remede in June. They were so delicious I decided to make some myself. Unfortunately they were awful. What have I done wrong? From the photo on your website it looks like you might have blended the cacao nibs?
