Chewy Chocolate Cookies

Gluten-free and sugar-free! Smooth creamy almond butter with a touch of buckwheat flour makes for a protein and fiber packed cookie that does more than just satisfy the sweet tooth!

Ingredients

• 2 large organic eggs

1 cup raw unsalted creamy almond butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ teaspoon raw apple cider vinegar

12 drops KAL liquid stevia

½ cup xylitol

¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tablespoons buckwheat flour

½ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon sea salt

¼ cup shredded dried coconut (optional)


Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350°.  Line 2 cookie sheets (I use an 18 x 13 cookie sheet) with parchment paper. (I use the same parchment paper later to store them)

2. Beat eggs with an electric-mixer in a medium bowl and then add rest of liquid ingredients. Do not mix the rest of the wet ingredients together.

3. Add dry ingredients in a large bowl and whisk together. Then combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix well with an electric-mixer until thoroughly mixed. At first it will seem too dry, but keep mixing and it will form into a thick, fudge-like dough.

4. I use a 1½ tablespoon cookie scoop to evenly portion out the dough onto a cookie sheet. Just leave the dough in round balls, no need to press. They will cook into perfectly round 3” cookies.

5. Bake for 12-14 minutes at 350°. The cookies will be soft and moist on the inside. It’s a little hard to tell when they are golden brown because they are already brown…so I tend to cook them about 12 minutes so they are gooey and moist!

6. Cool the cookies while leaving them on the cookie sheet placed on a wire rack.

7. After they are completely cooled use parchment paper to separate them and store in a Ziploc bag.
