I am really excited about these two recipes. Chocolate chip cookies and pancakes are a hit in almost every household. I knew that there had to be a healthier way of making them and there IS! I have been tried and tested these recipes in our kitchen and they are a real hit among our family. Grain is not as healthy as the media cracks it up to be, in fact, it can be tied to numerous health issues. Here are two popular recipes that you can still enjoy GRAIN FREE!
GRAIN FREE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE RECIPE:
I would double this recipe if you are making for a larger group!!
It is DELICIOUS!
1 cup unsalted almond butter
1/3 cup RAW honey (quality of honey makes a difference!)
1 whole egg
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used Enjoy life Dairy free!)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix together the first 5 ingredients until smooth and creamy. Mix in coconut and chocolate chips
Bake for 10-12 minutes depending on ovens. Turn halfway through. Remove and let cool.
Eat and ENJOY!
GRAIN FREE ALMOND BUTTER PANCAKES:
1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
2 whole eggs
1/2 teaspoon aluminum free baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of Pumpkin Spice (You can also use cinnamon if you prefer that)
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
** In a medium bowl combine and mix all ingredients until smooth and creamy.
Coat a pan lavishly with coconut oil spray ( I prefer to use stove top to make these)
Pour batter (I make medium size pancakes) so they are easier to flip! Wait about 3 min on one side and when edges are brown and bubbly, flip. I gently poke holes with a fork to tell when they are done.
This serves two. If you are looking to make these for a larger group or family, you can simply double or triple the recipe.
***Instead of the typical pancake syrup I like to heat up some RAW honey and use this as my syrup instead. 🙂
