Sometimes you just need a cookie! I don’t include much sugar in my day to day eating habits. When you work to eliminate sugar your tastes become extremely sensitive to it. When you do have something sweet the flavor can be a little overwhelming.
These cookies are great for those who don’t eat many sweets. I find that if I share them with people with a more sugar heavy diet they think they are too bland. So beware! If your tastebuds are not adjusted to low sugar treats these may not be right for you.
- 2 cups blanched almond flour
- 3 Tbsp grass-fed butter
- 3 Tbsp collagen powder
- 1/4 cup lakanto golden sweetener
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 TBL Cacao nibs
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 ts salt
- 1/3 cup 100% dark chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350
- Add the almond meal, collagen, salt and baking powder into a bowl. Pour the apple cider vinegar directly on top of the baking powder and allow it to react (it will go fizzy).
- Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir to combine evenly.
- Taste the dough and adjust the sweetness if needed. If you decide to add dried fruit or nuts start with 1/4c Lakanto and then add to taste.
- Roll the mixture into balls and place them onto a lined baking tray. I usually chill the dough before this step.
- Place the cookies in the oven and bake for 5 mins. After 5 minutes flatten them with a fork to achieve a conventional cookie shape. Let them bake for another 10-15 minutes after flattening.
- Remove from the oven when they’re ready and place the cookies onto a wire cooling rack. Allow them to completely cool before placing them in an air-tight storage container.
Makes about 16 cookies
