Once again, Bob’s Red Mill brought an ear to ear smile to my face.
Right before leaving for Boston, I received Almond Meal and Hazelnut Meal, two nutritious gluten free flours from Bob’s Red Mill. Low in carbohydrates and rich in protein.
On each package was a recipe for chocolate chip cookies using the nut meals. The following recipe uses the Almond meal and produced a soft cookie, firm texture and a lot of good flavor.
Makes about 16 – 20 cookies depending on the size
- 3 cups Bob’s Red Mill Natural Almond Meal
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup 100% natural maple syrup
- 1 whole egg
- 2 egg whites
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 375 deg. F.
In a small bowl, combine the almond meal, baking soda, and sea salt. Set aside
In a larger bowl, combine the coconut oil with the maple syrup and mix for about 5 minutes or until creamy. Add the eggs and extracts and mix for another 2 to 3 minutes. Sir in chocolate chips.
Drop onto parchment lined cookie sheets by heaping tablespoons, about 1 inch apart. Flatten slightly. Bake for 15 minutes, allow to cool, get ready to gobble them down.
Light, soft, and a lot of flavor.
Have you ever baked, cooked, created with Almond Meal? … or other nut flours?
