Christmas Chocolate Chips Cookies.
- 2 cups almond flour
- ½ cup pistachios, shelled and chopped
- 3 tablespoons coconut flour
- 6 tablespoons of water
- 4 tablespoons organic coconut oil, melted
- 4 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon flax seeds, ground
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 4 ounces dark chocolate chips ( I used dairy, soy free ones)
- 2 tablespoons of dried cranberries
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½teaspoon ground cinnamon
Soak the chia seeds and flax seeds in the 6 tablespoons of water for about 20 minutes creating a gel. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, mix all dry ingredients together (except pistachio nuts) to make sure there are no lumps from the almond flour. In a small mixing bowl, combine wet ingredients (chia/flax gel, vanilla, coconut oil, maple syrup). In the large mixing bowl, make a shallow center to pour the wet ingredients into. Fold and mix all dry and wet ingredients together until a thick and moist dough forms. Stir in the chocolate chips and dried cranberries of choice. Taking a tablespoon, scoop the cookie dough into a ball and roll in the palm of your hands making a round cookie dough ball. Roll this ball into your finely chopped pistachios, placing one side down and pressing the pistachios into the dough, turn it over and have the pistachio crumbs be the “top” of your cookie. Next set each cookie dough ball on a lined baking sheet with parchment paper, then pushing the ball to flatten. Make sure you leave at least 1½-2 inches in between the cookies. Bake at 325 for 15-20 minutes. They will start to turn golden brown. Place on a cooling rack to come to room temperature.
