Happy national cookie season ya’ll.
We are making some suuuriously delicious recipes on the blog for the holidays over the next few weeks, and these coconut flour chocolate chunk cookies are one of my FAVS.
They are made with 6 simple ingredients. Plus these cookies are also very doughy, soft and aren’t too rich or heavy. They also have some extra good goods for you. Can you guess what it is?
MARINE COLLAGEN! Heck yes. Recently at my healthy holiday baking class in NYC, I included Vital Proteins collagen in the goodie bags. A lot of people at the class were asking me a ton about collagen. Why I take it, how I use it, etc. I usually just have it with hot water with lemon or in my tea but I love baking with it even more. It gives recipes an extra boost that you seriously DO NOT taste at all.
Vital Proteins marine collagen is my go-to collagen. It helps support healthy digestive system, hair skin and nails, joint health and more. Anything that is supposed to be good for your hair wins 100 points in my book. I do believe it has help tremendously (as has a balanced diet) because my hair has gotten so much thicker and longer over the past year.
I promise you will not taste the collagen in these cookies either.
I love this cooke recipe because they are made with coconut flour and only SIX main ingredients people! They are grain, gluten and dairy-free. Plus they are made with almond butter, coconut sugar and grass-fed butter. You can likely use coconut oil in place of the butter but I haven’t tested that yet.
These cookies are little on the smaller side, so you don’t have to feel guilty eating 2-3 with your almond milk at the end of the day. I may or may not have finished this batch in under a week (no shame).
You can also freeze some and microwave a little to get that soft cookie consistency. I always freeze cookies to “save them for later then I just end up microwaving them frozen because I need cookies every night.. oops.
Let me know if you try these cookies and what you think! And most importantly, tell me if you use Vital Protein in them!
- 3 eggs at room temperature (this is key)
