Cookie Love

February 15, 2010

First Date


How was your Valentine’s Day? Was it heart-filled and chocolate dipped? If your valentine didn’t spoil you, here’s a recipe so you can spoil yourself with some almost clean, almost classic, chocolate chip cookies. It’s sweetened with coconut sugar, and how appealing is this? Coconut sugar “… is derived from the coconut sap, the sweet juice that is extracted when the budding flower is just about to grow.” Talk about knowing how to woo a gal, and with flowers no less! Coconut sugar is unrefined and rates low on the glycemic index.

Yield: 40 – 2″ cookies

1/2 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled

1/3 cup coconut sugar

1 large egg

1/2 cup brown rice flour

1/4 cup large-flake oatmeal, ground finely in food processor

1/4 cup tapioca starch

1/4 cup fine, unsweetened coconut

2 tablespoons buckwheat

2 tablespoons ground flax

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

scant 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon xantham gum

1/2 cup excellent quality (extra) bitter dark chocolate bits – yes, this is clean eating cheating, but at its most noble. The darker and best-quality chocolate you choose means that you will consume a chocolate that’s high in antioxidants, organic, fair-trade and often evaporated cane sugar sweetened. So if you’re going to stray…

Pre-heat oven to 375º. In a medium-sized bowl whisk together still-warm liquid coconut oil with coconut sugar and egg. Stir in all other ingredients. Drop by teaspoonful onto parchment-lined sheet pans, I fit 3 x 5 nicely. Bake for ten minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool on tray. What do you think? Are you feeling the love?
