My family spent the evening in the kitchen making chocolate chip cookies. They are so good! Although, I'm not sure if they are really that good, or the fact that I haven't had a chocolate chip cookie in 6 months that anything resembling a chocolate chip cookie would taste good to me. Since they pass the kid test, I'm gonna go with they really are that good! This recipe makes a TON and I mean a TON of cookies. Six and a half dozen to be exact!!! We plan on giving some to a new momma and freezing most of them for our road trip!
3/4 cup coconut oil
3/4 cup butter
1 1/4 cup raw honey
1 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 large eggs
4 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups almond flour
3 cups whole wheat flour (I use sprouted for added health benefits.)
2 Tablespoons flax meal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/2 cups 60% chocolate-bittersweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream oil, butter, honey and applesauce (mixture will probably not be smooth). Add eggs and vanilla and mix until combined. In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients. Add small amounts at a time to wet ingredients. Fold in chocolate chips. Bake 15-16 minutes until golden brown. Allow cookies to cool for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire baking rack.
