HAPPY ISLAND’S CHOCOLATEY CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Today I baked.  We had run out of everything sweet and my husband was driving me mad with ‘You need to make more of these…’ ‘You need to make more of those…’  So I gladly set aside the housework and did what I love instead, baking.  First I made some Yummy Mummy Date Balls using raw honey as the sweetener making a note to use Rice Malt Syrup next time so it’s not quite as sweet.  Then I made some Chocolate Oat Cookies courtesy of Coconut Health and Healing, so quick, easy and yummy.  Then I had a craving for a more biscuity style of cookie with a little bit more chocolate but without all the butter and sugar.  Hey presto!  Happy Island’s Chocolatey Chocolate Chip Cookies were born!  Really easy and quick to make, satisfies that choccie craving and is approved by my 3 year old!  Hope you enjoy them too!


 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup coconut oil (room temperature)

1 cup coconut sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste

1 egg

1 1/2 cups organic flour plain (I used white flour in this recipe but am keen to try a wholemeal spelt)

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 tablespoons raw cacao

Pinch of sea salt

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Method:

Preheat oven to 180°C.  Put the coconut oil, coconut sugar and the vanilla bean paste into the food processor to cream, this should only take a couple of minutes.  Add all other ingredients.  Place a sheet of baking paper on a cookie tray.  Roll mixture into balls, place on tray and flatten.  Cook for 15-20 minutes.  The amount of cookies depends on the size of your balls (and no I didn’t mean for that to sound rude!)  Enjoy
