Let's be real for a second... who actually makes cookie dough to bake cookies?! I mean, why would you when it tastes so damn good without having to wait for another 10-15 minutes for them to be ready?
Obviously normal cookie dough is packed full of refined flours and sugars so I've experimented with my own recipe which is more nutritious and also has a lot less sugar... what more could you want?!
I tested this recipe out on my Canadian friend (and everyone knows Canadians LOVE cookies - well, most of them anyway) and she gave it the tick of approval. That's when I knew it was good enough to share with you all.
I'm all about recipes that use minimal ingredients, are quick to make but also taste incredible and this one hits the spot - enjoy!
RECIPE (serves 4 - or 1 if you're like me)
- 1/2 cup (60g) almond meal
- 1/2 cup (50g) oat flour
- 2 tbsp maple syrup OR honey
- 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 1 tbsp almond milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 50g dark choc chunks
1) Mix all the ingredients except the chocolate chunks together in a bowl until well-combined (or use a food processor/blender to save effort and time)
2) Fold through dark choc chunks
3) Transfer to a small bowl and eat!
Yep... it really is as simple as that. You can pop the mixture in the fridge for 30 mins or so if you'd prefer a cooler cookie dough but that's completely up to preference. This will also last in the fridge for about 7 days - but good luck resisting for that long!
