CHERRY CHOCOLATE CHUNK COOKIE

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 cups almond flour⠀
1/3 cup coconut flour⠀
1/2 cup melted coconut oil ⠀
1/2 cup maple syrup⠀
2 eggs⠀
3/4 cup dairy free chocolate, roughly chopped⠀
1 tsp cinnamon⠀
1 tsp baking soda⠀
pinch of salt⠀
1/2 cup Fruit For Thought dried cherries,
roughly chopped⠀
1/2 cup roughly chopped walnuts or pecans (optional, but I highly recommend!)⠀

You can keep your pocket full of sunshine, I prefer a hand full of cookies anyway. I’d also like to point out that stacking five thick cookies in one hand, without dropping them, and then taking a picture was no easy task, but I did it—I. feel. so. accomplished and it’s only Monday.

Here is my new CHERRY CHOCOLATE CHUNK COOKIE recipe. They are paleo friendly and gluten free. Perhaps they can be made vegan with a flax egg, but I didn’t test it, so I can’t make any promises. ⠀

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 350.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix together the almond flour, coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, maple syrup, and coconut oil.
Pour wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients.
Dough will be thick.
Fold in the chocolate chunks, dried cherries and nuts, if using.
Using a cookie scoop, form 10-12 cookies and place on the baking sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes. I always take them out at 10 minutes because I prefer a CHEWY and soft cookie!
Enjoy!
