I thought I'd at least take a short break in order to share with you some amazing cookies I made earlier this week. Actually, this is a recipe I've been meaning to try for more than a year. Oh My Goodness!!!!! It is everything everyone has always said it was! These Chocolate Chip Cookies are absolutely in-cre-di-ble! And you know what's the best part? They don't even need dehydration so you can whip 'em up whenever the craving for a sweet treat hits you.
Man, is there an end to all those scrumptious creations? I sure hope not!
Mysticat’s Chocolate Chip Cookies
Posted by Mysticat on RFT
1 3/4 cups cashew "flour"
3/4 cup ground oat groats (or use all cashew flour for a much sweeter dough)
1/4 cup agave nectar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
Blend 1/2 cup coconut oil, 1/2 cup carob, 1/2 cup cacao. Put mixture in freezer, then chop into chunks.
In a large bowl, mix Cookie Batter ingredients by hand.
Fold in Chocolate Chips.
Form into balls, roll in cashew "flour" and refrigerate.
mysticat.....GENIUS---PURE GENIUS with the chocolate chip cookies!!!!! They are out of this world!!!!! the cashew flour is what really made the cookies!
a few modifications that i did---i used all cashew flour, used all cocoa and added agave to the choco chip mixture until it was "bittersweet". I think i will use less oil next time and it was a little bit oily for my liking.....BUT HOLY SMOKES WERE THESE GOOD!!!! i couldn't stop snacking on the batter and then i had to put in the freezer to let the choco harden up a bit so i can form them into balls!
I made the chocolate chip cookies and they are AWESOME! I didn't roll them in cashew flour and I ended up putting them in the dehydrator...they were warm, soft and chewy and the chocolate chips were so close to the SAD ones it was scary!
~ I used both oat and cashew flour and 1/4 cup coconut oil instead of 1/2 cup.
~ I used chocolate pieces I had sitting in the freezer, made with cacao paste and agave.
~ I just dropped the batter by the spoonful on a parchment paper. I'm all for simple!
Enjoy with almond milk or Eva's yummy Cacao Mylkshake!
