Sometimes, I get a crazy craving for chocolate. Oh, who am I kidding? I’m always craving chocolate! I could have easily grabbed a quest bar, some chocolate chips, or a low cal chocolate ice cream bar out of the freezer, but one of my new year’s resolutions was to start adding more recipes to my blog. I’ve already failed at a couple of my resolutions, but I’m working on it! All habits take time.
I wasn’t sure if I wanted cookies or brownies, so I decided to make a combination of the two. And since I was in such a chocolatey mood; I made them healthy! The willpower is bad when chocolate is around.
These cookies are flour free, butter free, and I didn’t add any sugar! (other than the honey & dark chocolate chips)
Ingredients: 1 3/4 cups ground almond flour, *2 eggs, *1/4 cup almond milk, *4 packets stevia, *1/3 cup semi-sweet *1 tablespoon baking powder, *1 teaspoon baking soda, *1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/4 cup honey, *1 tablespoon ground coffee and *1/4 cup dark chocolate cocoa powder.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the almond flour with the eggs, almond milk, baking soda, baking powder, stevia, and cocoa powder.
Mix in the coffee and honey. If you’re not afraid of raw eggs, take a taste test. Make sure it has enough sweetness and chocolatey flavor.
Mix in dark chocolate chips. Plop tablespoon sized dough balls onto the baking sheet. The texture is a mixture between cookie dough and brownie batter. Make sure the pan is greased. I used olive oil.
Bake for 12-13 minutes.
I was expecting these brownie cookies to be decent but not as good as they were. Holy cow! They tasted like the real deal! I think I liked these better than the original flour brownies. They were so rich, chocolatey, and mouthwatering. I am going to have to make these again!
I promise you’re going to LOVE these!
This recipe makes 25 brownie cookies.
