Maple Almond Cookies

IMG_7634.jpg

There's no chance we're about to catch those Monday blues on this rainy day! No way, no how. I will not let it. It's been raining for over a week and a half straight here and this weather has so quickly made my furry little cheetah blanket (while sitting on the couch) seem the perfect little P A R A D I S E with palm trees swaying in a brisk little breeze, lol, I wish I was kidding . . . . . .  But E N O U G H of that, one day of slumping it is more than enough because as I was scrolling through my Instagram feed I spotted something that immediately got me up + in the kitchen! M A J O R *thanks to @rachlmansfield for inspiring me to recreate her paleo Maple Almond Cookies! I was instantly drooling when I laid eyes on those little beauties and knew I had to get my hands on a batch myself and boy OH boy, am I glad I did! #EatBetterFeelBetter

@rachlmansfiled is someone I've been following and admiring on Instagram now for a few months, since this past summer to be exact—she is #GOALS—check out her Instagram page, blog, and everything in between to drool over her creations + inspiring "oat porn" because it's ALL absolutely incredible! #we'retotallyfriendsinmyhead

Here's my take on her super quick + super super yummy *paleo cookie recipe!

I N G R E D I E N T S

  • 1 flax egg — 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 3 tablespoons of water
  • 1 cup Justin's maple almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons BEE FREE HONEE
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1½ teaspoon vanilla

D I R E C T I O N S

  1. Create your flax egg: in a small bowl, combine ground flaxseed + water, stir, and set aside until the mixture fully coagulated—this typically takes about 5-7 minutes!
  2. Preheat oven to 350OF.
  3. In a food processor or *NutriBullet, pulse together the maple almond butter, bee free honee and coconut oil for about 30 seconds.
  4. Once your flax egg is coagulated, add to mixture and pulse again.
  5. Dump mixture into a mixing bowl, I plopped mines into my KitchenAid.
  6. Add coconut flour, baking powder, coconut sugar and vanilla extract. Blend until dough consistency.
  7. Shape cookie dough into about 1 tablespoon balls and place onto a parchment sheet tray.
    • S I D E N O T E: after forming the balls, I rolled a few separately in shredded coconut, a few in coconut sugar blonde + kept a few plain for Blu.
  8. Place into oven for about 6-8 minutes, or until gold brown.
  9. E N J O Y!
