Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hi everybody! I truly have to admit that chocolate chip cookies are one of my weak parts. I just simply can´t resist the temptation. The super delicious hardness of the crust as opposed to the doughy inside when breaking it in half, as well as the oozing melted chocolate inside, is a temptation I believe nobody really ever will be able to resist. What´s then better than to make these cookies healthy and full of nutrition and all of the other good stuff? Nothing.

I´ve tried various variants of these cookies. I have tried to make these without eggs, but as a result I find cookies that are really fragile and that easily crumble apart. Therefore I decided to do this recipe using eggs, but for you vegans out there I will in not the longest period of time find the perfect recipe for you too!

Makes 10 large cookies

2 eggs
6 tbsps extra virgin coconut oil
2/3 cup coconut flour
2/3 cup almond flour
4 tbsps agave syrup
1 tsp vanilla powder
1 tsp baking powder
100g dark chocolate, in a bar

Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F. Whisk the eggs together and add the coconut oil. With a wooden spoon, try and smooth out the coconut oil so that the oil and eggs form a thick "egg-paste". Add the coconut- and almond flour, as well as the syrup, vanilla powder and baking powder. Mash all of the ingredients together until you see that the dough is coming together well. Finally chop the chocolate bar into little pieces and pour it over into the dough. Give it a final mix. Place a baking paper over a baking tray and with a ice cream spoon, form ten equally sized chunks of cookie dough. Spread the chunks evenly out on the baking tray and press them down using a spoon. Tip: The shape you make at this point will be how the final result will look like. Place them in the oven for 10 minutes, take them out and let them rest on a grate for at least half an hour before you eat them.
