New Favorite Vegan Cookie Recipe

I love treats! But I also like to feel good… So I love finding new recipes that bring the best of both worlds. Healthy treats do not have to taste like cardboard or worse…weird sweetness. I found the inspiration for this recipe  from Sweetly Raw , I love Heather and all of her Recipies!  I did a little bit of an experiment when I tried my version of this recipe {with my skeptical friends and family} I made two batches of cookies: one with this vegan recipe and one with a paleo recipe that included eggs. It was an overwhelmingly clear result..VEGAN COOKIES!!! I did not even tell anyone that the cookies were different ingredients, I simply put them all out and watched the magic happen. I am here to share my success so here it is…the magical recipe for every ones new favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe {and it is super simple and quick!}

 

These take a whoppin’ 10 minutes to bake!!! And if you do not get distracted like me it is about 5 minute prep time.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees ( Bake time 11 minutes!!!)

Ingredients

1 Cup Organic Almond Flour

1/3 cup oats

1/2 cup chocolate chips I used  Lily’s Dark Chocolate Chips- 1×9 OZ
3 tbsp Avocado oil  or melted coconut oil

3 tbsp coconut nectar/maple syrup/honey {I used a combo }

1/8 tsp celtic sea salt{ I used Red Salt}

1/4 tsp Baking soda

1/2 tsp vanilla extract {I love vanilla so I may have snuck in a bit more}

{These cookies got such a good response that I doubled the ingredients for my next batches and they were still gone before they cooled!}

{{ IF you feel adventurous you can substitute a little of the oats(1 or 2 tbsp) for a little bit of raw cacao powder or one of my favorites.. sneak in superfood mixes!! It bumps up the nutrient content and these cookies are already super healthy might as well make them even more quilt free!! – here are links to the superfoods I tried .. and everyone loved .~coffee LESSS latte fix, remedy your adrenals and Heavenly hot chocolate mix }}

*~*~*OK! LETS MAKE THESE COOKIES NOW!!~~~~If you have a food processor, put the oats in first..then dry ingredients…then wet.

If you are mixing by hand then simply mix the dry ingredients really well and then the wet. I like to use my hands so that is what I did.

The dough is a little crumbly but i just made equal size balls and flattened them a little with my hand and they came out amazing!

******BAKE FOR 11 minutes and ENJOY!!!*******
