THAt’S right! Cookies have never been this easy! Now that the New Year is here…it’s time to start gettin your HEALTH on! I’ve got the solution for ya’ll. You know that I’m constantly researching healthy ways to get my sweet fix in, and with this recipe, I’ve found the ULTIMATE!
Have you ever used coconut flour?
please refer to this great site to help you grow accustomed to low carb baking.
Foodie Fiasco is another great site/blog that I follow for low carb baking. I absolutely love her! All of her sweets are completely healthified.
This morning I was craving something sweet to go with my coffee, and I didn’t have much time to make anything that was too fussy, so this was perfect. I had all the ingredients anyway.
Oh, btw, have you ever made cookies in your microwave… Yeah me neither. Talk about curious. The original recipe with made with molasses, I instead opted for sugar free honey. Just preference. I also doubled the recipe so that I could have enough for a few days;)
You will now see how freakin easy this is. They are pretty dense. Really, because coconut flour sucks in lots of moisture, plus the banana. So the cookies should be made small. Trust me, they’re filling.
Alright, check it….
In a small/medium bowl…add coconut flour, salt, and stevia. Combine these ingredients well, coconut flour tends to lump up so make sure smash those little chunks right out. Once combined, add unsweetened vanilla almond milk. You could also use light unsweetened coconut milk. I like to use a fork to combine, the whisk usually sucks for me. I find that things blend better with my fork. Especially for this type if baking.
In a different bowl, (small), mash banana well, add honey, and vanilla. Mix
Add into your other flour/milk bowl. Combine all to create the batter. Then, fold in chocolate chips. In this case, I used vegan carob chips. Really, you could use any, but I would stick to the darkest, purest dark chocolate. The darker the chocolate, the more fiber, and antioxidants, the less sugar. I actually LOVE me some 100% dark cacao, I could even much on a handful of raw cacao nibs! Yummy.
Once the cookie dough I created, make little dough ball, and flatten them out to a cookie shape.
Ok, now comes the part that I was a bit skeptical about….I was actually laughing when I read how to cook them. Aright, grab a microwave safe plate.
Grease it, and place the cookies on it. Place them inside the microwave, and cook in 1 minute increments. Watching and smelling. Mine were done after the 3rd minute, maybe the 4th. Andddddd….viola!
I mean. CAN YOU BELIEVE!?
Then, these pretty little baby’s came out. Listen, they’re not gooey, they’re not gonna be slightly browned. (Duh, they were cooked in a micro) and they’re not gonna taste like your grandmothers famous cookies, but hell, they are super yummy, dense, ridiculous healthy, like REALLY… Only 130 calories for THE WHOLE BATCH!! Get into it.
Girls and boys, if this year, your resolution is to get fit, then you have to remember, it’s not just the gym that needs to get on point, but your diet does too. They go hand and hand. This is the FIT way to eat cookies!
