TWO bites. Everyone knows the rules. These are cookie dough stuffed with chocolate chips. They are the cutest lil things you ever did see. They do have quite a bit of effort involved, because you will literally wrap every couple chips with cookie dough. But for those who watch love meditative activities & or like to listen to The Rich Roll podcast while they bake, it's super easy! & trust me, THEY ARE WORTH IT.
R E C I P E
11/4 flour (can sub GF flour, or Whole Wheat Flour)
1/3 cup coconut flour
1/8 teaspoon of cinnamon (or more ;) )
1 stick of VEGAN Butter (I've been using Country Crock Avocado butter lately & loving it, Earth Balance is also fantastic)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
2 tablespoons applesauce (unsweetened)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Dairy free chocolate chips (60 ish if they are big)
Whisk together dry ingredients in a large bowl- almond/all-purpose, cinnamon, & baking soda & salt
Ensure butter is ROOM TEMP
In a separate small bowl, mix ground flax seed & applesauce.
In the standing mixer, cream butter & sugars (white/brown) together
Add vanilla & then add flax seed/ applesauce mixture.
Once combined, add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Mix until just combined. A dough should form.
Now heres the methodical part -- With CLEAN HANDS, take 1/2 teaspoonish of dough and roll it into a ball. Flatten the ball and place 1 chocolate chip (or a few chocolate chips) and then fold over. Roll the dough carefully around the chocolate and place on a cookie sheet with parchment.
Once all the balls are rolled - this recipe makes about 50 cookies -- chill for 20 min, just so they maintain their shape.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Bake the mini cookies for 7 minutes. They should be golden on the bottom.
Let cool before serving.
