Hey beautiful readers! There's nothing I hate more than a recipe blog that tells you all about everything else first. I think hell really might be a never ending bus ride with the windows shut tight and you're forced to read the beginning of recipe blogs, but never see the actual recipe.

So without further ado, here's the worlds best gluten free, dairy free, paleo - esk Chocolate Chip Cookie (bar) recipe.

You'll need to mix the dry stuff, then mix the wet stuff.

Then mix the wet stuff into the dry stuff.

Dry stuff

1.5 C. Almond flour

1.5 C. Rolled oats

1/2 C. Tapioca flour

1/4 C. Hemp seeds

1/2 t. Baking Soda

1/2 t. Sea Salt

Wet Stuff

1 organic egg

1/4 C. Maple Syrup (the real stuff) + About a tablespoon of overflow. ;)

1 T. Coconut oil - Organic, unrefined

1 T. Vanilla extract

Once everything is sufficiently mixed, go ahead and fold in your dairy free chocolate chips.

You'll want to use about 3/4 C.... but who am I to judge if your hand slips a little bit and it end up being closer to 3 cups worth? I'm kidding, right? ;)

Mix it all up... You'll need to use a scraper to gather the dough into a ball.

Pour 1.5 T of coconut oil onto a cookie sheet, then spread the oil with your hands. Do not wash you hands yet.

Use your

oily hands to pick up the dough ball and transfer it to the cookie sheet.

Keep your hands nice and slimy as you press the dough into one big cookie, until it's about 1/4 of an inch thick.

The oil trick saves lots of heart ache, hand washing, and about 1/2 the dough. Trust me on this. I've made a lot of cookies!

Once the cookie is pressed, bake at 375° for 17 minutes.

Congratulate yourself. You've just created something delicious without any gluten or dairy. Many people said this couldn't be done. Send each of those naysayers a picture of your chocolatey and satisfied face.

You are a shining star, and now you know how to eat like one. ;)

 

Thanks for baking, make good choices. :)

Hey my fellow eaters! A few things to know in addition to the recipe meme above:

It looks like I forgot to add the hemps seeds to the meme. :) You can add up to 3 Tablespoons without the flavor taking over, in my opinion. If a more nutty flavor isn't your style, simply add less.

Oil your pan, or use parchment paper.

You can oil your hands as you press the dough into shape. I demonstrate this tactic in the video. It helps to not get the dough stuck all over your hands. I used olive oil here, but grapeseed or coconut oil would also work great!

Try adding lemon rind or a few drops of food grade essential oil, and let me know how that tastes!

I hope you enjoy this recipe. Please share it with friends to love food. :)
