flourless chocolate chip cookies.


I finally found a chocolate chip cookie recipe that contains only whole foods. I have no issue making (or eating) a good old fashioned chocolate chip cookie with lots of butter, all purpose flour, and granulated sugar but this sounded like a fun and healthier recipe to try. I am also going to be trying another whole food recipe with my friend, Hannah - sweet potato brownies!

You should definitely check out more recipes on http://mywholefoodlife.com/ - I am so excited to try more of her recipes!

Ok, back to the recipe. Oh and you might even have some of these ingredients on hand already! These chocolate chip cookies contain honey OR maple syrup, cashews, vanilla, sea salt, and lots of chunky dark chocolate. That's it, I promise!

flourless chocolate chip cookies from my whole food life
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups cashew butter*
  • 1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or ground vanilla beans
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt (omit if cashew butter is already salted)
  • 1/3 heaping cup dark chocolate chips or chunks
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a food processor, combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate.
  3. Mix it all up until it looks like dough.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Drop cookies onto a lined baking sheet. 
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  7. Let cool completely before removing from the cookie sheet. 
  8. Store in an airtight container or in the freezer for longer keep.
*I made my own using 2 cups of plain cashews. Easily grind them up in a food processor for about 5 minutes or until it is butter-like consistency.
