Happy Thursday! I am gearing up for my hubbies birthday, so pretty much everything I make over the next few days will be for him! I thought he would like something sweet … other than me!
A few weeks ago, I ordered some almond flour from Digestive Wellness. I ordered their superfine flour, recommended from Against all Grain. I had been strictly a Honeyville Almond Flour girl, but I decided I would give this a try!
Here is a picture of both flours side by side – Honeyville on the left, and Digestive Wellness on the right. Honestly, I didn’t see a huge difference, but the Digestive Wellness was a little more fine.
I used the Digestive Wellness flour for these cookies, and all I can say is they are pretty good!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Adapted from Paleo Plan
Print this recipe!
3 cups almond flour
1/4 cup coconut oil, softened, but not liquified
3 tbsp ground flax seed, mixed with 3/4 cup warm water
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter (I use my homemade peanut butter, but any nut butter will work!)
1/4 cup honey
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, mix the almond flour and the coconut oil. With an electric hand mixer, cream the oil and the flour.
In a separate bowl, make the flax egg – mix the warm water and ground flax. Let set to gel.
Add the baking soda, salt, vanilla extract, peanut butter and honey to the almond flour mixture. Add in the flax and water mixture, and beat until combined. The batter will be thick.
Add in the chocolate chips, and beat briefly – just enough to mix in the chocolate chips.
Grease a baking sheet with nonstick spray or a little coconut oil. Wet your hands – take about 2 tbsp of the cookie dough and form into a circle. Place on the baking sheet, and flatten slightly. Repeat to fill the baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Let cool on the cookie sheets for 1-2 minutes, and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
Makes 3 dozen cookies (I actually got 39 cookies – but I have a tendency to make small cookies!)
Best enjoyed with a glass of milk, of course
