Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies Save Another Family

Monday, January 09, 2012

My family loves each other. My family loves each other.
I have to keep reminding myself of that over and over, because some days...
Not so much love is floating around.
The loss of sugar, bags of chips, and white bread has got the teenagers in a snarly mess some days.
The girl wants sweet things to put in her lunch, the boy wants something to munch on after school. Something remotely normal, is how he put it.
So on Pinterest I found a recipe for almond and coconut flour dark chocolate chip cookies (no white sugar in these!).
I was a little worried about the response from the kids, but to my surprise it was a huge hit!
What is nice about these is that they are filling.
Where my son used to polish off half a bag of oreos in one sitting, he was happy with just two.
When you eat primal you are not as hungry, and the almond and coconut flour are full of fiber, filling you up more quickly.
Another new food my family was happy to eat, yay!

Here is the recipe, let me know if you try them.

2 cups almond flour (1 heaping cup of nuts make 2 cups)
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup flax meal
2 eggs
1/2 cup of honey
1/2 cup of butter (or coconut oil)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped dark chocolate chips

I mixed it all up and made small cookies on the baking sheet and baked at 375 for 12-16 minutes (till the edges browned)

    Thanks! I just had these at a friends house last night. They were great. She used agave nectar instead of honey. Do you have the nutritional info? are these in the recipes for Sparkpeople?

    Sounds great thank you for sharing the recipe with us! I will have to try it.
    Have a super day and hang in there. I did this with young teens and I went through the same grumbling! LOL They survived and so did I. :-)
