I’ve had a one track mind all day that can be best summarized by one of our furry blue friends on Sesame Street. “Me want cookie.” With the grayish weather all day on Wednesday, I actually found myself struck with a desire to bake! In spirit of #TBT, here’s a recipe originally posted back in December, which is easily one of my favorites. The only instance in which paleo cookies may actually be better than that recipe on the back of the Nestle bag.
Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies
Prep Time: 20 min | Cook Time: 12-14 min | Yield: 16 cookies
1-3/4 cups Almond Flour
3 tablespoons Coconut Flour
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
3/4 cup Freeze Dried Strawberries, crushed into small pieces
3/4 cup Coconut Crystals
1/4 cup Coconut Oil, melted and cooled
2 Eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Chips
1/4 cup Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Mini Chips
Note: You’ll need some parchment paper for the dough-chilling part of this recipe.
- In a mixer, combine all dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, salt, baking soda, strawberry bits and coconut crystals.
- Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and add the coconut oil, eggs and vanilla, mixing to combine after each addition. Add the chocolate chips (It helps to gently toss them in coconut flour first) to the cookie dough, and mix to combine. The dough will be rather soft.
- On a large piece of parchment paper, shape the dough into a log just like you’d buy from the grocery store when you used to think Pillsbury slice & bake cookies were a good idea. Roll tightly and chill in the freezer for at least 10min to firm up the dough.
- Heat your oven to 325°F. When the oven is ready, take the dough out of the freezer.
- Slice into 16 cookies, which will be approximately 1/2″ thick.
- Bake until lightly golden brown all over and set all the way to the center (12 to 14 minutes). Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet until firm (at least 10 minutes) before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Letting them set for 10 minutes is pretty important, so PAWS OFF for at least that long before you begin your endeavor to polish off the whole tray. Do the dishes or something.
