ADVISOR TO MEN: SEMI-PALEO COOKIES
TURN ON OVEN pre-warm oven to 350 degrees
2 cups almond flour (I like the whole nut grind—sometimes I substitute a bit of coconut flour)
½ teaspoon of baking powder
1/3 cup organic dark chocolate chips (omit if desired)
1/3 cup coconut flakes (or substitute with any dried fruit)
1/3 cup crushed fresh walnuts
¼ cup butter
3 tablespoons Maple Syrup
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Mix the almond flour and baking powder with a whisk. I add the dry chips, flakes and nuts and mix it all while it’s dry, while others might fold it in as they add the wet ingredients
Mix the butter, vanilla extract, maple syrup and egg(s) together and then add to dry mix
Fold and stir muscularly by hand with stout baking spatula until well mixed.
Place golf ball sized balls of mixture on parchment paper on your baking pan or size as desired.
Flatten with spatula and round edges to hold shape given chips and nuts
Bake for 20 minutes. Cookies don’t expand like regular flour.
Keep a watch after 15 min checking the bottom of one for just the right colour.
You may need to exercise cook’s prerogative and test by nibbling on it.
Place remainder on cooling rack and call the kids to see who gets dibs on which ones…
Watch a family movie with your children or read them a story before bed.
Tell them you love them even more than cookies. Swear it’s true.
No kids? Practice this recipe in case one day…
Or do the same with your missus or partner.
Tell them you love them more than cookies. Swear it’s true.
Enjoy this minor reward guilt-free.
Tell yourself you love you. Swear it’s true.
True and Free
