I am constantly on the search for a paleo chocolate chunk cookie recipe that comes close to my fond memories of Cookie Time cookies and this is a pretty good contender.
I used block chocolate that I roughly chopped into chunks, but you could use whatever form takes your fancy, chips, drops – the world is your oyster.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (the real stuff please, no imitation essence here thanks!)
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
90g dark chocolate chunks (we’re talking at least 70% cocoa, yum)
Pre-heat your oven to 180ºC.
Sift your flours and baking soda into a large bowl. In a mixing jug whisk together the egg, coconut oil, coconut sugar and vanilla extract, then mix into the flours in the bowl to form your dough.
Next fold in your chocolate chunks (I found that I had to scrunch them in with my hands as the coconut oil means the batter is not very sticky).
Using your hands shape roughly tablespoon amounts of the dough into cookie shapes and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Bake for around 12 minutes, but start to check them after 10, you want them to be turning deliciously golden brown.
