INGREDIENTS »

DSC_0564

› 1/4 cup SunButter *

› 1/4 cup coconut oil, softened but not melted

› 3/4 cup coconut sugar

› 1 egg

› 1 tsp vanilla extract

› 1 cup paleo flour mixture [you will need almond flour, tapioca starch, & coconut flour – makes 2 cups]

› 1/2 tsp baking soda

› 1 cup chocolate chips

 

HOW TO MAKE »
  • set oven to 375F.
  • prepare your flour. sift together 1 cup almond flour, 2/3 cup tapioca starch, & 1/3 cup coconut flour into a bowl. this will make 2 cups of the flour, & here you will use 1 cup. set aside the 1 cup and store the rest for baking later!
  • cream coconut sugar with coconut oil & sun butter [using a mixer].
  • add egg & vanilla extract & mix.
  • separately, mix 1 cup flour with 1/2 tsp baking soda.
  • add dry ingredients to wet ingredients in 3 sections to allow smooth incorporation.
  • once mixed, stir in chocolate chips with spoon or spatula.
  • refrigerate the dough for ~30 min [up to hours, if keeping in fridge until baking another day] to allow it to firm up so you can roll & ball it in your hands without being too sticky.
  • to bake ~ set on cookie sheet with enough space for each cookie [dough will expand a bit in the oven] & bake for 10-12 min on 375F.
  • let cool then eat or store for the week!

 

*note: for some reason, sometimes SunButter turns the baked goods green once they are cooked and cooled.  the inside of some of my cookies turned green [i tested them on my friends and they were alarmed — apologies to @cristina 😉 ] but it is harmless! sometimes it doesn’t turn color, but be warned!
