Chocolate cookies for Friday. YES. And OMG these are really gooood! I really think the almond extract enhances the flavor tremendously, so if you like almond, I highly recommend getting and using some almond extract. These are gluten free, vegan, deep dark chocolate cookies, and would you believe they’re high in fiber too? And the fats in them come from avocado of all things, so you aren’t just getting a treat, you are eating your fruits/veggies too 😉 So good, they kind of taste like brownies 🙂 I’m obsessed.
1tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cu cocoa
2/3cu coconut flour
1tsp almond extract
Pinch of Madagascar vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
5 dates, softened (30sec in micro with water or soymilk)
1/3cu soy milk
Combine all ingredients together, blending all but flour and cocoa powder first then adding flours last. Then depending on consistency, add up to 1cup water (add little by little) until you have a nice cookie dough that can be rolled into balls and pressed down lightly on parchement paper.
Then bake at 350 for 10min and let cool!
Yields about 16 cookies at about 45 calories each! 2g fat 7 carbs almost 2 g protein, and about 3.5 grams of fiber per cookie! That is a lot of fiber for a cookie, no bran required 🙂
I don’t always do nutrition facts for what I make, but I have recently stated tracking macros just to make sure I’m getting enough of certain important nutrients (like protein and fiber).
Enjoy!! I know I am 🙂
