Made these on a whim tonight because I “just felt like baking”. Usually, I have to recipe test baked goods pretty hard. Like, I have still yet to master gluten-free pancakes hard. (Let a girl know if you have a secret recipe) These cookies tonight though, they were so fluffy and delightful.
I love recipes like this that can be used for multiple different occasions. I could take these to a party or I could literally eat them for breakfast. They’re that nourishing! Also super easy to digest for all my GP friends out there, I got you.
Let’s talk about tahini really quick too. It’s one of the highest sources of calcium you can get. I just found this out tonight as well and I am super excited! Keep your eyes peeled for where it might pop-up next! Maybe salad dressing?
Anyway, I highly recommend this one right here. Do it!
- 1/3 cup frozen organic wild blueberries
- 1/2 coconut flour
- 1/4 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 1/4 cup organic maple syrup
- 2 tbsp tahini
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ginger
- 1 egg (or sub flax egg)
- 1 tbsp ground flax + chia mix
- 1/4 cup almond milk
Preheat over to 350F. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together (except the blueberries!) until a thick dough texture forms. Fold in frozen blueberries (may also use fresh, the organic wild are just small and easy to fold). Roll into 1 inch balls, place on parchment-lined baking sheet, and lightly press down with hand. Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool for 5-10 minutes, enjoy!
Pro tip: dunk/ submerge in unsweetened vanilla almond milk. A fluffy dream. OR add to breakfast bowls with yogurt.
