And today, I just couldn’t help but share with you one more chocolate dessert recipe. Plus, we all need some cookies for Santa this time of year :) . So here we go:

Grain Free Chocolate Cookies

Makes about 30 cookies.
Prep time: 40 minutes.
Baking time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

1 cup almond meal
1 cup cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
2 eggs, beaten
½ cup Agave nectar
½ cup coconut oil, at room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
200 g (about 8 squares) dark chocolate, chopped and melted

Preparation:

  • Pre-heat oven to 350F.
  • In a small bowl, combine almond meal, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. Mix well.
  • In a large bowl, combine eggs, Agave nectar, coconut oil and vanilla extract.
  • Mix well and stir in cooled melted chocolate.
  • Add almond/cocoa powder mixture and mix well.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the dough is firm enough to roll, about 20 minutes.
  • Using a table spoon, measure even amounts of dough and roll in your hands to form balls.
  • Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper 1 inch apart.
  • Bake in the oven for 15 minutes until cookies crack.
  • Remove the baking sheet to a rack.
  • At this point, cookies might look undercooked. Just leave them on the baking sheet until they cool completely.
  • Gently remove cookies from the parchment paper.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week or freeze up to 1 month.

Enjoy!
