I have been trying to perfect this recipe for some time, and I finally got it! They are light and fluffy, and can be made as sweet as you would like. There are different ingredients that you can add or substitute with that I mention in the ingredients and directions section.
I made a video you can follow along to learn how to make them!
1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking powder
6 tbs coconut oil (NOT MELTED).
4-6 tbs maple syrup, depending on how sweet you want them put more or less to your liking.
1 tsp tahini or almond butter or really any nut butter of your choice.
1 egg, egg replacement or chia egg. To make a chia egg: 1 tbs chia seeds and 3 tbs water then let it sit for about 5 minutes or until it makes a gel-like texture.
Handful of raisins, nuts, seeds or chocolate chips (or all all 4!).
- Make your chia egg, mix together 1 tbs of chia seeds with 3 tbs of water then stir and set aside for about 5 minutes or until a gel-like texture.
- Mix together all the dry ingredients (almond flour, coconut flour, and baking powder) in a bowl or food processor until all lumps are gone, then set that bowl aside.
- Scoop out 6 tbs of coconut oil while hard, this is very important as it hold the mixture together better for a more doughy consistency. Then in a small bowl using a fork mush the coconut oil until it is a smoother texture but still solid (not melted liquid).
- In the same bowl as the mushed coconut oil, add the teaspoon of nut butter, and 4-6 tablespoons of maple syrup. Mix together until smooth.
- Combine the wet and dry ingredients until it has a doughy consistency.
- Now add in your chia egg to the dough, you will notice this will make it clump together into one big dough.
- Once it is in a smooth dough consistency, add your raisins, chocolate chips, nuts or seeds, or all 4 and knead the dough a bit, until it is in one big ball (make sure to wash your hands before the kneading).
- Preheat oven to 350ºF, and put the dough in your fridge to chill for 7-10 minutes. This is another important step, as it hardens the dough and will hold together better once in the oven. Have a solo dance party while you wait for the oven to heat and the dough to chill.
- Once the dough has hardened, prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper and roll the dough into 12 even balls.
- Then place in the oven for 10 minutes, let them cool (I know this step is hard), and enjoy!
