We’ve had lots of folks asking us about gluten-free and paleo recipes. So, we decided to try out this recipe from Living Health With Chocolate.
UPDATE: Our cookies turned out thicker than the picture below. We lightly placed dough from the spoon to the pan. When you set the dough out, try gently flattening them out just a tiny bit. These are tasty! FIVE STARS, particularly since they are easy on your digestive system and use natural sugars only! [polldaddy poll=7259459]
Last week I told you about my love for chocolate chip cookies and how hard and tempting it is for me to just turn my back to the smell of a freshly baked cookie when I walk past a bakery. I posted my recipe for these amazing Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies made with almond flour, butter, egg, arrowroot powder, vanilla and chocolate chips.
Today I want to share with everyone the most delicious chocolate chip cookies recipe made with no flour at all! I have taken the flour out and replaced it with a mixture of fresh almond and pecan butter. I used raw sprouted almonds and pecans and processed them in the food processor until soft and creamy like peanut butter.
These are the simplest and fasted cookies to make. They taste just like a regular cookie, has a soft and chewy consistency and melt in your mouth.
The recipe makes 18 cookies and you can store them in an air tight container at room temperature. If you can wait and not eat them all in one day, I found that they taste even better the next day!
- 1 cup almonds
- 1 cup pecans
- 1 large egg, room temperature
