Chocolate Nut Butter Cookies (grain-free)

IMG_7857

These chocolate butter cookies are a light delightful cookie to have hanging around the house for a snack, when friends come over or with a cup of tea in the evening. If you can muster up the desire to have chocolate in the morning, these protein (yep, protein in these cookies) chocolate butter cookies will be a great quick, yet wholesome breakfast too! If you have difficulties with feeding children in the morning, I am sure this will be a great way to coax them into having something wholesome in their tummies before the day.

I use coconut for the flour in these cookies, mixed with almond butter or peanut butter or even sunflower seed butter. I have tried them all, and all three work very nicely. I use raw butter for those working brains and energy for the day and some wholesome raw honey to sweeten. I use dark chocolate to dip these cookies in (about 75%) so depending on your sweet tooth you could also do milk chocolate.

If you are using sunflower seed butter or any of the seed butters these cookies will not be high in protein as it lowers the protein count. Almond butter does deliver the highest protein out of the nut butters.

These would be great for kiddies 12+months of age.

Enjoy!

Ingredients
  1. 3/4 cup coconut flour
  2. 1/2 cup raw soft grass-fed butter
  3. 1 pastured egg
  4. 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp. raw honey (you can leave out the tbsp. if you would like less sweet)
  5. 2 heaping tbsp. raw almond butter
  6. 1 tsp. baking soda
  7. pinch unrefined sea salt
  8. 1/2 cup 75% sweet chocolate (I use Camino, baking chocolate)
Instructions
  1. Set the oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper
  3. With a hand mixer beat the butter and honey till smooth, add in the almond butter and the one egg and continue to beat till combined.
  4. In another bowl mix together the coconut flour, baking soda and sea salt.
  5. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat with a hand mixer till combined and you can use your hands to form into a ball
  6. Using a little coconut flour, dust your counter or one piece of parchment paper and lay the dough on top. Using another piece of parchment paper place over the dough and roll out.
  7. Use a cookie cutter to cut out your shapes and place onto the baking sheet, repeat till the dough is finished. Careful not to use too much coconut flour for dusting as it can dry out the dough.
  8. Place into the oven for 10 minutes
  9. Pull out a small pot and fill it with water to set on the stove to boil. Place a glass bowl over the top and add the chocolate. Stir consistently as the chocolate will melt quickly and you don't want it to burn.
  10. Once completely melted take off the stove and set aside
  11. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on a cooling rack. You can then dunk each of them into the dark chocolate and place them back on the cookie sheet to dry and cool.
Notes
  1. I have used peanut butter and sunflower seed butter and both work well as a substitute.
