GF Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

For when grains are the enemy and you just need a cookie:)

GF Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

These grain free gems can also be made with Peanut Butter. I use a fresh almond butter that I get from a natural food store.  It gives it a hearty texture. You could make your own with a vitamix or sub in any other almond butter. 

  • 1 cup Almond Flour
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter ((room temperature))
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 6 tbsp almond butter ((nuts only, no additives))
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips or chunks
  • 1 egg
  1. With a mixer, beat butter, coconut sugar and almond butter together until combined. 
  2. Beat in egg and then vanilla.
  3. On a low speed add in dry ingredients until combined. Stir in Chocolate chips. 
  4. Place a silicone baking mat* on a baking sheet.**

    Shape into mounds about the size of a golf ball and place on baking mat about two inches apart. Flatten slightly.

    Bake for 11 minutes. Remove and let cool a little before transferring to a wire rack. 

 

I use top of the line baking products from BonCook.  Safe and easy to use! I wouldn’t use anything else!

Cranberry Applesauce – Instant Pot or Microwave

 

Cranberry Applesauce

This applesauce is a great addition to your holiday dinner. Ditch the canned cranberry sauce and make your own. No food dyes or corn syrup. And it’s super easy. 

  • 3 medium Apples (I like granny smith or Honey crisp)
  • 1 pkg. fresh cranberries (washed )
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
  • 8 drops YL Thieves vitality oil (optional)
  • 5 drops YL Orange vitality oil (optional)
  1. Peal and coarsely chop apples. Place apples, cranberries, sugar and water in your Instant pot. Secure lid and set for 8 minutes using the manual button. Use a natural release when finished cooking. Stir in desired spices. It will be chunky. You can reduce the amount of sugar but it will be tart. 

  2. For Microwave: Place all ingredients in the large round mold* topped with octagonal bonMat** and cook on high for 10 minutes. Carefully remove from microwave and smash together and add spices if desired.
