grain-free cookies by Lores

a1000-36 One of my sister-in-laws’ name is Lores, and she is a wonderful homemaker.   Although these have morphed from muffins to bars to now cookies, there has never been a time I have been at their house when she doesn’t have a batch or 2 (or 3) made!  Her recipe is always changing, so there’s a good chance it isn’t exactly like this today.  My family has stuck with these because they are our favorite!

Lores’ Grain-Free Cookies

What you need:

2 1/2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 – 1 tsp salt

2/3 cup coconut oil (melted)
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/3 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

What to do:

Mix the dry ingredients (almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and salt) in a bowl.  Set aside.

a1000-29 In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients (coconut oil, maple syrup, eggs and vanilla).   Once that is mixed well, slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.

a1000-11 Once that is stirred together well, add the sunflower seeds, chia seeds and chocolate chips.

a1000-31 Mix well.

a1000-32 With your hands, form balls with about 2-3 tablespoons of the dough.  Grease a large baking sheet with coconut oil, and gently squish them just a bit before you put them on.

a1000-33 Once you are done licking the bowl putting them on the baking sheet, place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes (I’ve even done overnight).

a1000-35 Pre-heat oven to 350-375 and bake for 10-15 minutes.  I’m sorry to be so vague on that, but I have found every oven to be different.  We live in very high altitude, and today I baked these on 375 for 13 minutes.

a1000-34 Enjoy!

But I want to just remind you… if you make these for a group that is used to Nestle Toll house cookies, they might look at you funny.  But I promise they are delicious, and I feel great about my kids eating them anytime of the day!
