approximately 9 minutes
1/4 cup organic, raw almond butter
1/4 cup organic tahini
2 cups super fine almond flour
3 tablespoons organic chia seeds (whole!)
3 tablespoons collagen protein powder
2 tablespoons organic, raw cocoa powder (optional)
1/4 cup organic, grade A maple syrup
3 teaspoons organic vanilla extract (sugar free)
2 tablespoons organic almond milk
1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
3 ounces bittersweet dark chocolate (optional)
Note: Always presume all ingredients listed are organic and/or as natural as can be (GMO and pesticide free).
Note: It's easy to get confused when reading food labels today. To save you research time and frustration, I have linked as often as possible to my favorite brands. These same products and 1000's more can be found HERE. My favorite non-toxic kitchen equipment is also linked below, as well as many more HERE.
Preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees. Cover baking sheet with parchment paper.
Put all ingredients into a medium bowl and mix until smooth.
Form the dough into 12 balls, approximately 1" in size. (A cookie scoop works well) Roll each ball in your hands, then evenly space on baking sheet.
Press down on each ball with the palm of your hand, pressing it into a cookie. (You can use a fork instead if you prefer)
Bake until cookies have slightly darkened and appear to be cooked through, approximately 9-10 minutes.
Optional: Melt 3 ounces of bittersweet chocolate in a small ramekin in the oven under low heat. Dip half of each cookie into the chocolate, then place on parchment paper. Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens.
Store cookies in the fridge in a glass covered container, separating rows of cookies with parchment paper, preventing them from sticking together. Keeps well up to 1 1/2 weeks.
If you have a nut or seed allergy, this recipe is not for you. Sorry!
