I'm a firm believer that all foods fit.
Being mindful and bringing awareness to the foods we eat and focusing on filling our plates with whole-foods that fuel us and bring us energy creates space for all foods to have their place.
It doesn't mean all the cookies, all the time. It means that they have their place - and their place should absolutely be guilt-free.
And these Soft Baked Almond Flour Cookies are perfectly guilt-free.
While traditional cookies also fit - these Soft Baked Almond Flour Cookies have become our family favorite. They are delightfully chewy and the hint of sea salt is perfect!
These are a must try! And don't forget to tag me on Instagram (@wellnesswithabbeyh) when you do so I can see your delicious treats!
Soft Baked Almond Flour Cookies (makes approximately one dozen)
2 T. applesauce
3 T. pure maple syrup
1 t. pure vanilla extract
2 c. almond flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. fine-grain sea salt (+ more for topping)
1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Pre-heat oven to 375 F.
In a small mixing bowl, mix together apple sauce and maple syrup. Whisk in egg and vanilla extract; set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix together almond flour, baking soda, and sea salt.
Pour wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix together (mixture will be thick). Stir in chocolate chips.
Roll into small balls and place on a lined baking sheet.
Bake for 9 minutes. Remove from oven and, using a fork, gently press each cookie to "flatten". Sprinkle lightly with a touch of sea salt (don't miss this step!) and enjoy!
