I was in the mood for a cookie. We rarely keep packages of cookies in the house, so I had to make some. With the ingredients I had handy, this is what I came up with. They went down well.
1 tsp. chia seed
1/4 c. coconut flour
dash of sea salt
1 packet Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter (about 2 T)
1 T. water
In the trusted Vitamix place chia, dates, and coconut flour. Turn to medium-low speed. Allow these ingredients to turn into a sandy texture, which should only take about 30 seconds. This mixture will clump together when pinched with your fingers. Pour the sandy textured dough out into a small bowl and then add a packet of almond butter and water. Work the dough until everything is incorporated, it will be a tad dry, but still hold together well. Separate the final dough into 10-12 small balls, place on a parchment lined baking sheet and firmly press down to flatten into a cookie shape. Sprinkle with a touch of coarse sea salt for a nice salty-sweet combination. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 8-10 minutes. These cookies are caramel-ly, salty, sweet, and chewy.
