Almond-Oat-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Very often, when I am home on a rainy week-end, I find myself making cookies. I don’t know why, it just happens… Maybe it’s because of their pleasant smell when they are baking in the oven, or their soft&crispy texture that goes perfectly with a tea or coffee while starring outside at the rain.

Anyway, you don’t need to wait for the rain to make these purely vegan, gluten-free and delicious cookies. I made them with extra coconut because I miss my recent days in Thailand and Sri Lanka but you can reduce the coconut if you prefer!

Here we go!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp flax meal (ground flax seed) + 3 Tbsp water
  • 1 cup almond meal (almond flour)
  • 1 cup rolled oat
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut (you can reduce this or not put it at all as per your preference)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven at 350 F ( 180 C)
  2. In a small bowl, mix the flax meal and water. Let it sit while you prepare the rest
  3. In a large bowl, mix the almond meal, oats, shredded coconut and baling powder
  4. In a small bowl, combine the coconut oil, honey and vanilla extract. Add them to the flour mixture along with the flax seeds. Combine well with a whisk or using your hands. The texture will be granular.
  5. Mix in the chocolate chips
  6. For each cookie, scoop out 1 Tbsp of the dough and  arrange it on the baking sheet by forming a thick disk. As I had only one traym I needed to do it in two batches
  7. Bake for 15 minutes.
  8. The cookies are ready when their edges are slightly brown. When you take them out, they will be a bit soft and crumbly. That is why it’s important to let them on the tray out of the oven for a couple of minutes and then to let them cool on a rack for at least 5 minutes before eating.DSC_0392.jpg
  9. If stored in a good container, they will remain good for at least 5 days

Now rainy days are not sad anymore!
