Chocolate chip coconut cookies (GF, DF and EF)
Sometimes, mom's just need cookies. Cookies (particularly one's that have chocolate in them) can provide a little sanity in the middle of a crazy day that is filled with play dates, laundry, and two year old tantrums. Am I right? If you love coconut, and you love cookies, you will love these. Another plus: They are another allergy friendly dessert option for your family. I make a batch a hide them in the freezer. My husband can eat 10 at a time, no joke.
You will need:
1/2 c. coconut flours
1/2 c. light honey buckwheat flour
1/2 c. gluten free oats
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. coconut oil, slightly melted
1 tbs. ground flax mixed with 3 tbs. warm water, let thicken
1/2 c. chopped pecans
1 c. dark chocolate chips
Mix coconut oil, with brown sugar, vanilla and flax mixture. Add in remaining ingredients.
Bake at 325 for 12-15 minutes
*The mixture will appear dry. Firmly press into a small cookie scoop before placing on parchment lined baking sheet.
*You should assume that every food/recipe on snacktimemom includes only organic ingredients unless otherwise specified.
