  • ½ cup of ground golden flax
  • 3 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup of water

I have a confession……. That my love affair for chocolate chip cookies will bring me to my knees praying, “God let it be worth the bite”!  There, I said it and girl I feel free of the cookie chains around my hands.  These are worth every bite, and no guilt that they might contain retched ingredients.  This cookie was inspired by my pure need for a desire that runs deep in my soul!  I had a moment all to myself when I finally healthified it.  Here is hoping you have a moment too!  Indulge these cookies in the morning for a chipper day!

Chocolate-Chipper1

Ingredients:

2 cups of finely ground almonds (you can grind almonds with skin on in Vitamix, blendtec,  coffee grinder, or food processer)

½ cup of ground golden flax

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

3 tablespoons of chia seeds *(in the video I used 1 egg)

1/2 cup of water

½ cup date sugar (in the video I used Sucanat)

1/4 cup of coconut oil *(video says 1/2 cup but 1/4 works best)

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4- 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips

Chocolate-Chipper2

Directions:

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Blend the finely ground almonds, flax, baking soda and baking powder.

3. In a separate bowl mix the chia seeds with water and add the sugar, coconut oil and vanilla.  Add mixture to grain free flour till all ingredients form the dough.

4. Fold in chocolate chunks. Scoop about a tablespoon of dough onto your stoneware.  Bake for 12-15 min. till golden brown.  Let sit and cool.

Tips: I prefer to use stoneware rather than the coated, no stick cookie sheets.  Let cookies sit before removing as they are a bit delicate till cooled.  I like to use a favorite gluten free, organic dark chocolate bar if I am unable to  find organic, gluten free dark chocolate chips without all the added stuff.  For you chocolate lovers, add 1/4 of the superfood- cacao powder (learn more at must-haves page) for some extra chipperness!  *Also, in the VIDEO I use 1 egg and skip the 1/2 cup water.  If eggs are a problem or you are just taking a break from them adding the 1/2 cup water like the written recipe says, will activate the chia and flax seeds into a gooey texture for a great egg replacer. You can use any low glycemic sugar {date sugar or coconut granules} of your choice.

Here is to your health.

Have A Chipper Day,
