Colossal Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

I LOVE Chocolate Chip Cookies…

but most store bought cookies are filled with not-so-good for you ingredients like trans-fats, processed sugars and artificial flavoring. A little indulgence here and there doesn’t hurt, but my health-ified version of Chocolate Chip Cookies will really satisfy your sweet tooth, and leave you feeling good after. And even better, this recipe is gluten-free, vegan, AND has no added sugar which means they can be enjoyed by almost anyone!

I’ve been using tigernut flour in a lot of my dessert recipes lately. I love it because it is super high in fiber, and lower in fat when you compare it to many other gluten free flours. I used a bit of un-sweetened shredded coconut, and a mashed banana for some added sweetness and flavor. After these cookies baked, they are HUGE, thats why I’m calling them Colossal Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies!

I hope you enjoy this recipe!

Colossal Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp almond butter, melted
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil, melted

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, F and grease a cookie sheet with coconut oil.
  2. Melt the coconut oil and almond butter (I do it together in a little bowl in the microwave for about 20 seconds). Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed banana, tiger nut flour, coconut, vanilla extract, salt and pumpkin pie spice, and melted coconut oil and almond butter- mix together until a dough forms (if the dough is too wet add a little more coconut).
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips until homogenous (or so).
  5. Form the cookies into balls (or blobs) using a tablespoon.
  6. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
  7. Set aside to cool and then serve and enjoy!
