We have been very productive these past few days of being together again. For those that asked – we do not live in the same city anymore, it happened for a few reasons but rest assured we are both doing great. We have been enjoying lots of yummy foods lately. Dangerous when both of us are in the kitchen together 😉 Even though we have been loving eating our not so normal daily eats we are excited to get back to our simple meals. A few people of asked when our little cookbook will be done, we hope soon as we are finally done making all the recipes and taking pictures. Now its editing and designing time of the book. We are working around the clock to get it done here very soon!
Just like there could not be any more baked chocolate chip cookie recipes out there. There are plenty of raw chocolate chip cookie recipes too. There must be just something about eating raw cookie dough. Or having a nice warm gooey soft cookie that just melts in your mouth that everyone loves.
We actually created these cookies the last time Michelle was in town, and finally got around to making them one more time -you know…to make sure they were super yummy.
We already have two raw chocolate chip cookie recipes that we just love, so why make another one? Well we wanted one that had a little more protein and fiber! Plus we like trying to create new recipes using different ingredients as not everyone has the same likes or ingredients on hand.
These are raw cookies that are super easy to make! Just blend and scoop and enjoy! For a warm cookie you can place in the dehydrator.
You can do these cookies baked too! As we have shown here on wax paper. Came out just as lovely.
mmm protein flax cookies
These raw cookies are soft, chewy from the coconut and flax meal. With a power protein punch from the addition of protein powder.We based the cookies out of raw buckwheat groats for more fiber and protein. If you do not have buckwheat groats you coud use oat flour. When we were making these cookies we actually wanted a cookie that did not have nuts in them. We have nothing against nuts, we just wanted to see if we could make a raw chocolate chip cookie without always using nuts.
So having the mix of coconut flakes, buckwheat groats, protein powder and flax meal provided enough texture that we were hoping for in our nut-free raw cookies.
Also like some of our recipes these cookies are not overly sweet, you can really taste all the different flavors and textures happening.
Never enough cookies around.
Although these cookies are slightly soft they are sturdy!
chocolate chip protein flax cookies
- 1/2 cup coconut flakes
- 1/4 cup buckwheat groat flour (grind buckwheat groats into flour)
- 1/4 cup brown rice protein powder
- 3 tbsp flax meal
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp liquid stevia
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 tbsp chocolate chips or cacao nibs
- Place all dry ingredients into a food processor. Pulse together till combined and flour like texture. Next add in your wet ingredients and pulse till batter comes together. Stir in chocolate chips. Scoop cookies onto dehydrator sheet and press down to flatten cookie.
- *These cookies can be made in an oven at 300 degrees for 15 minutes
We wanted something sweet but still wanted it to be healthy, quick and easy. Not your average chocolate chip cookies. We think these cookies are worth it. They satisfy both your sweet tooth and your nutritional needs
