Even for someone who is happy to not eat grains, I still have a sweet tooth. I know that is where many can fall off the bandwagon so to speak when sticking to a new eating plan. I have THE best cookie recipe for you today. I know its a big call that it is the best recipe, but really it is.
The choc chip cookie must be one of the most recognised cookies all over the world. I have tried several paleo versions, most have been too soft or too soggy. A good cookie to me is crisp on the outside and soft in the centre. Here is a Paleo version of a choc chip cookie from Against All Grain, that is the best, most tastiest I have found. I have adapted it for the Thermomix.
Chocolate Chip Cookie (makes 12)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil or grassfed butter
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 large egg, room temperature
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1.5 cups blanched almond flour
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 175 degrees.
- In the TM bowl, cream the palm shortening, coconut sugar, honey, egg, and vanilla for about 15 seconds/speed 5-7 until smooth.
- Add the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and sea salt and mix again until combined, about 10 seconds/speed 4.
- Scrape down the sides of the bowl if needed in order to incorporate all of the flour.
- Add the chocolate chips and stir through on Reverse/Spoon symbol.
- Place golf-ball sized balls of dough on a cookie tray lined with parchment paper. Using another sheet of parchment on top of the dough, flatten them slightly with the palm or your hand or a spatula. The cookies don’t spread much so create the size and thickness you want prior to baking them.
- Bake for 8 -10 minutes, until slightly golden around the edges.
- Let them cool on the tray for a minute and then place on a wire rack to continue to cool.
*Step 6 is very important, it does help them to shape properly. They don’t spread like ‘normal’ cookies.
Oh my! These are so good. Once you have tried one of these you will go crazy for them.
Later today I will be sharing a review of the Against All Grain cookbook. If I was ever to buy a book just for one recipe this would be it, but luckily the whole book is just as good. I’m also giving you the opportunity to WIN your very own copy of Against All Grain.
