Dark chocolate cookies studded with almonds and coconut. The goodness of an Almond Joy and the crackly top of a brownie in cookie form. Gluten-free and low fat so you can have your cookie and a waist line, too!
1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Spread almond slivers and shredded coconut evenly on a large rimmed baking pan. Place in the oven and toast for about 7-8 minutes, turning/tossing once halfway through, until golden brown and fragrant. Reduce heat to 325ºF.
2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl whisk together cocoa (1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons total), powdered sugar, and salt. Continue whisking while adding egg whites and vanilla extract, mixing until just moistened. Don’t overwhisk or the eggs will stiffen. Stir in almonds, coconut, and chocolate chips.
3. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. (I highly suggest using parchment paper. I had one cookie that wouldn’t fit and baked straight on the pan and I couldn’t get it off later!) Spoon batter by the tablespoon onto the baking sheet (this makes 24) or by heaping tablespoons (this makes 18 large cookies).
4. Bake for 14-16 minutes, turning pans and shifting the top to bottom rack halfway through. Cookies are finished when tops are shiny and cracked. Slide the cookies off the pans and allow to cool completely before removing.
A fudgy flourless chocolate chip cookie without grains? Is it possible? You better believe it! Perfect for those who have grain allergies or are gluten-free.
These are gluten free, dairy free and sugar free (we’re using slightly sweet applesauce and a hint of maple syrup in place of white sugar) blueberry packed muffins … with a yummy almond crumb topping. A tip: Always eat the tops of muffins first. Especially when crumb toppings are involved.
A breakfast that tastes like cake? Yep! Shredded carrots are throughout these little oatmeal cups. And with the sweetness of a bit of crushed pineapple it’s the perfect combination! No flour is needed or dairy for these personal sized baked oatmeal cups. If there are no allergies in your family like mine, then of course you can go ahead and add some chopped nuts if you like!
