NUT-FREE DOUBLE CHOCOLATE PALEO COOKIES

These would have to be one of the best cookies I have ever made.

You will never guess they are made from sunflower kernels!

After the first round of experimenting with sunflower seeds in replacement of flour, these delicious nut-free cookies were literally gone in minutes (which is why there were only 4 left in the photo)! 

Note: If you wish to make them regular choc-chip, swap out the cacao powder for more sunflower meal.

What you'll need:

200g sunflower kernels

1/4 cup raw cacao powder + 1 tbsp

2 tbsp coconut flour

2 tbsp coconut sugar

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup dark choc chips

1/4 cup rice malt syrup (or honey if you prefer them sweeter)

4 tbsp coconut oil (melted)

1 tsp vanilla extract 

 

Method: 

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. 

1. Make the sunflower meal: Blend/process sunflower kernels in a high speed blender or food processor until mixture resembles coconut flour. 

2. In a medium size bowl, mix together sunflower meal, cacao powder, coconut flour, coconut sugar, baking powder and chic chops.

3. Once well combined (make sure you get all the lumps out!), add the rice malt syrup, coconut oil and vanilla. 

4. Roll and flatten into 12 cookies. 

5. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
