My girls and I made the most delicious choc chip cookies on Saturday. We used the choc-chip cookies recipe from Real Food, Healthy, Happy Children by Kath Megaw (such a great recipe book with tons of easy ideas for littles).
There are three reasons why I love this recipe:
- They take 10 min to make and 10 min to bake
- You can make them your own by using the recipe as a base, and switching out or adding in ingredients
- They are really delicious and gooey
There was one strange thing with the recipe, it said the batter would make 48 and we got about nine. I am sure it is meant to say 4-8 because who wants 48 cookies anyway?
1 free-range egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp coconut oil
A pinch of sea salt
2 tbsp xylitol
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup almond meal (ground almonds)
1/2 cup raw macadamia nuts (I didn’t have these so we just left it out)
1/4 cup cacao nibs (we replaced this with actual chocolate chips, because, well, chocolate…)
- Preheat oven to 175 degrees. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
- In a medium sized bowl, whisk the egg, then add the vanilla, coconut oil, salt, and xylitol.
- Mix in the baking soda, almond meal, macadamia nuts and cacao nibs.
- Using your hands, mould the cookie dough into small balls and arrange on the baking tray, flattening each one with the palm of your hand as you go. Bake for 10 minutes.
Best served hot (because of the oozing chocolate) with a glass of cold milk.
