Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies!
Anyone else have an insane sweet tooth?
This entire pregnancy, baby girl has me craving everything sweet, so while dinner was in the oven, hubs helped me whip up some blueberry blender muffins and a batch of healthy chocolate chip almond flour cookies.
Here’s to starting the week off with yummy, healthy treats for baby girl and I. Oh, and the guys too.
RECIPE inspired by my Fixate cookbook. Seriously, I have been following this portion control container system for over two years now and THESE are the kinds of recipes I get to enjoy and my challengers too!
• Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. • Combine 3 cups almond flour, 1 tsp baking soda, and 1/4 Himalayan salt in a small bowl and mix well. • In a separate, large bowl, beat 1/4 cup coconut oil melted and 1/4 cup pure maple syrup until creamy. Appx. 4 minutes or so! Then, into that same bowl, add in 1 large egg, 2 large egg whites, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Beat for another 2 minutes with your electric handheld mixer. • Into that bowl, add in your almond flour mixture and stir together until blended. • Then, add in your 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips until just blended. • Using a small cookie scoop or tbsp, scoop rounded into the baking sheet. Flatten if you want them MORE of a cookie shape. • Bake for about 14-16 mins. 14 mins is perfection in my oven! You want them golden brown. • Store in an airtight container and even freeze! They’re delicious that way! ENJOY!!
