Salted Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

These cookies are what I call Pegan=paleo and vegan!  It can be tough to find a recipe (that actually tastes good) that is devoid of gluten, dairy AND eggs but this one is a winner!!  I tweaked the sugar to be as low as possible but you may be able to alternatively sub a small amount of monk or stevia sweeteners if you prefer.  Also-I’ve included my recipe for making a flax egg as well-this is an easy egg substitute for baking recipes for those who don’t do well with eggs.  Enjoy!

How you do it:

To make Flax Egg: Whisk ground flax + warm water in a small bowl, let sit for 10-15 minutes

  1. Preheat oven to 350S
  2. Sift (you can just use a whisk) together almond flour, tapioca starch, baking soda and salt
  3. In another bowl blend together nut butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, coconut sugar and vanilla until smooth
  4. Add flax egg into wet mix
  5. Add flour to wet mixture and mix just until a dough forms
  6. Fold in chopped walnuts and chocolate chips
  7. Chill mix in the fridge for 15 minutes
  8. Line a baking sheet with parchment and preheat oven to 350
  9. Scoop onto baking sheet and flatten tops slightly
  10. Bake 13-15 minutes until just turning golden brown (should still look a little soft)
  11. Remove from oven and cool on baking sheet before serving, sprinkle with a touch of salt
  12. Serve with steamed almond milk 🙂

Makes roughly a dozen cookies
