- 2 cups almond flour
- 1 cup coconut flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/3 cup ground flaxseed meal
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/3 cup almond butter
- 2 sticks of butter (softened)
- Chocolate chips- 1/2 cup or as much as your kids talk you into using (I always hear "Mom that doesn't look like enough chocolate chips... these are supposed to be CHOCOLATE CHIP cookies.")
Let the kids spoon out the cookie dough in balls and put them on the parchment paper, stressing the need for about 2 inches of space between cookie dough balls and the fact that the last time they made a cookie as big as their head it didn't turn out as well as they'd hoped. Squash the balls FLAT but not too thin.
Bake for about 12-15 minutes, shamelessly using your kids to "keep an eye on things." Remove cookies from oven and let them stay on the cookie sheet for a couple of minutes before moving them to a cooling rack. Remind kids that the last time they grabbed the cooling cookies off the rack they burnt their tongues. Pour glasses of cold milk in preparation for this to happen anyway.
This should in theory make about 2 dozen cookies, depending on how big you make them. Nate decided to make small(ish) ones this morning, so far we have 3 dozen and are still baking.
Have a happy day!
