As usual, I mashed up a few internet recipes together (mostly based on this recipe from Primal Palate) to fit the ingredients that I had in the pantry, and it turned out perfect. Definitely the best grain-free/gluten-free/paleo/refined-sugar-free/dairy-free cookies I've ever had. Next to a regular glutenous, dairy-filled, sugar-laden cookie, I'd best most people wouldn't be able to tell the difference. These were moist and browned very nicely. And the dough... oh the dough. I'm a fiend when it comes to cookie dough, so I chew gum while baking so I don't pick at it. Beware: if you OD on these cookies, this is what happens to you:
Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes about 20 cookies (we doubled this recipe and got 38 medium-sized cookies).
1/2 cup coconut flour
3/4 cup arrowroot flour or other light flour (I used equal parts buckwheat, tapioca, and brown rice flour, because that's what I had laying around)
1/2+ tsp sea salt
2 tsp real vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
2 pastured eggs (duck or chicken or whatever)
1/2 cup unrefined coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup unrefined sweetener (I used 1/4 local maple syrup and 3/4 local honey)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 metric shit tonne of LOVE
1) Melt the coconut oil and get the honey soft and liquidy. I recommend putting it in a glass jar and immersing it in a pot of boiling water. I'm not a fan of microwaves for these things.
2) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
3) Mix the dry stuff.
4) Mix in the wet stuff.
5) Add in the chocolate chips.
6) Spoon out on an ungreased cookie sheet.
7) Bake for ~10-15 minutes. Watch them closely, as all ovens are different. I harvested them when they were golden-browned but still a little floppy and gooey on the inside.
8) Let cool about 10 minutes. Eat with a milk-like substance. I prefer unsweetened hemp milk. My sis had them with some raw goat milk from our neighbor.
