Imagine a life without chocolate? Me either.
These double chocolate chip cookies are sure to crush any chocolate craving. Filled with healthy and chocolatey cacao and lots of chocolate chips, you’re sweet tooth will be satisfied.
I made these cookies with a mixture of oat flour and almond flour. This is one of my favorite flour combos. I love how the almond flour holds the moisture in the cookie, and the oat flour gives the cookie that nice crunch. They are both great sources of protein and fiber too!
I also used tahini in the making of these cookies. You may see tahini (ground up sesame seeds) making it’s way around Instagram and blogs, but there is so much more to it than just an additive to baking and sauces. Tahini is highly nutritious. It is full of antioxidants and anti-imflammatory nutrients. It is amazing for your liver, kidneys and your nervous system. SO not only does this paste make a great addition to sauces and helps make your cookies delish, but it has so many powerful properties too!
1/2 cup avocado oil
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup tahini
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup cacao powder
1 cup oat flour
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, mix together the baking powder, oat flour and almond flour. Set aside. In another bowl, mix together the avocado oil, salt, tahini, egg, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Mix well. Then add cacao powder. Once combined, fold in the flour mixture. Then fold in the chocolate chips. Then begin scooping out 2 tbsp of batter and form into a cookie shape. Place on the parchment paper. Bake for 14-15 minutes. Remove from the oven, transfer to a cooling rack , let cool and enjoy!
