Whoa, these morsels are definitely a tasty delight that give you a healthy dose of cacao first thing in the morning, or after a meal.
They can be anything from a healthy desert, to a quick snack, or brekkie on the go.
If you’re anything like me, then eating a concentrated amount of cacao might be a major pick-me-up.
These yummy cookies offer antioxidants, protein, and yet still taste like heaven. What’s not to love?
Monk fruit sweetener (or any sweetener of your choice)
As usual, I didn’t measure. But this one is pretty straightforward, so you should be just fine. This made about 3 dozen smallish cookies.
1. In a large mixing bowl, add 3 C cacao power, 2 C coconut flour, 2 C quinoa flakes, 2 heaping T flaxseed meal, and 1 tbsp baking soda or powder. Mix together.
2. Add about 3 C coconut milk (or any non-dairy milk of choice). Stir until sticky mixture. Add more milk if it’s not sticky enough.
3. Add 2 T coconut oil, 1/8 C cacao butter, and 2 heaping T almond butter (or nut butter of your choice). Stir together.
4. Add monk fruit sweetener (or sweetener or choice) as you like it. I used about 2 tbsp. This isn’t necessary if you don’t want it to be super sweet.
5. I like to add seeds for more nutrition and texture, but if that’s not your think, they don’t add the hemp and chia. I probably used about 1/8 C of each.
6. Once it’s all stirred into a sticky mixture, I made pretty small cookies because I’m pretty sensitive to the stimulating effects of cacao, but you do you. I topped some of the cookies with an extra dollop of almond butter, and all with a few sprinkles of cacao nibs.
7. Bake 180 C for about 20 minutes, then check. It depends on the size cookies you make for how long it takes.
