I love to bake and I have all the ingredients for most anything in my cupboard. Today, I decided to bake something mildly healthy since I’m still on a celebratory eating holiday (for two days) after completing my various shoots this weekend. I did some research and found THIS recipe. It was very easy to make. It turned out pretty good – definitely doesn’t taste like a real chocolate chip cookie as it lacks the buttery and sweet taste I’m used to. (this recipe has no butter or eggs) However, it does get the job done if I am craving chocolate and something that looks like a cookie.
The ultimate taste tester? My husband! He came home and tried it. He LOVED it. Another person was my eldest son (who loves sweet stuff). He liked it! So I guess it’s officially a hit!
I don’t know the nutrition on it – so let me know if someone figures it out. LOL!
1/2 cup coconut oil (soft solid – I melt mine a little)
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup almond or soy milk
1 tbs vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
3/4 cup carob chocolate chips
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
- Cream together the liquid coconut oil & brown sugar, then add the milk alternative & vanilla.
- In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
- Combine the wet & dry ingredients, then fold in the chocolate morsels & any other mix-ins of your choosing.
- Roll into Tbsp sized balls & place them on an ungreased cookie sheet, then flatten them out a bit with yout palm.
- Bake for 7-10 minutes.
