Almond coconut cookies. (oh dear)

20 Mar

These are so good I wanted to cry. I adapted them from Angela at ‘Oh she Glows’ and wowwwwwwwww they are amazing. Also, this blog is truly amazing and was basically the reason I started to blog so please check it out!

I anticipated a recipe fail…but no…There actually in the fault. Ryan approved and all. If there Ryan approved the recipe can be given to ANYONE. Some of the recipes on this blog will need an imagination. For example the ‘cake for breakfast’ posted last week. If Ryan was to eat it he’d be dissapointed thinking it was supposed to taste like birthday cake. However, I don’t eat cake so the cake for breakfast felt like an indulgence! 

Back to the cookies. There sweet and chewy all while being vegan,dairy,soy and wheat free. There sure to please anyone so sprint to the kitchen and immediately get mixin’.

Almond Coconut Cookies

  • 1 flax egg ( 1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp warm water)
  • 1/2 cup toasted coconut ( toasted is optional), shredded
  • 1/2 cup almond meal ( can purchase at grocery store and grind into a meal yourself or just buy ground almonds)
  • 1/2 cup sucanat or cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat Oven to 350F. mix flax egg and set aside. Mix dry in one bowl and wet in another. Finally combine the two and drop tablespoons onto a parchment lined baking sheet.

The batter will be super thick but dont worry!

Bake for 14-15 minutes and allow to cool on baking sheet. Best served hot or cold, or from the freezer or basically anyway.

Off to spin class! ( I dread spin. I always feel better afterwards but in the middle of it I want to just fall off the bike and never ever touch it again!…anyone else feel this exact same way.) However there is a woman in my spin class who insists on wearing biking glasses INDOORS. Hilarious, I know
