The holiday season is upon us, which means we’re constantly surrounded by tempting foods that aren’t always nutritious. If you’re on the hunt for a wholesome holiday cookie recipe, you’ve come to the right place. In just under 30 minutes, you will have a plate full of nutty, chewy (gluten-free and grain-free!), chocolate-chunk cookies. This is a snack that your kids and guests will love.
servings: 24 cookies
prep time: 15 minutes
cook time: 10 minutes
total time: 25 minutes
- 2 cups almond meal
- 1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate (heaping)
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 6 tablespoons melted coconut oil
- 4 tablespoons honey
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons milk (whole, or low fat)
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Roughly chop chocolate into 1/4 inch pieces.
Step 3: In a medium-sized bowl, combine chopped chocolate, almond meal, cinnamon, baking soda, and sea salt.
Step 4: In a smaller bowl, whisk together coconut oil, honey, vanilla extract and milk. (Measure the coconut oil in your tablespoon first, then use the same tablespoon to measure out the honey; this helps the honey to slip out of the spoon easily into the bowl.)
Step 5: Pour wet the ingredients to the dry-ingredient bowl, and mix until well incorporated.
Step 6: Prepare a parchment-lined baking sheet. Fill your tablespoon with batter, and scoop batter onto the baking sheet.
Step 7: Bake for 10 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
Use almond milk, instead of cow’s milk, for a dairy free recipe.
