Doctored Desserts Chocolate Chip Cookies

Exploration as a chef or baker for me meant finding new ingredients and creating healthy versions of comfort foods.
 
As a young adult, I was diagnosed with a food allergy to dairy and wheat, which explained many strange symptoms I had been struggling with since childhood. Removing these items from my diet made me noticeably healthier and happier. Soon after, my nephews were also diagnosed with these same allergies—which meant no treats for us all!
Because I enjoyed cooking and baking (and especially experimenting!), I began creating recipes without our common allergens. This was decades before gluten-free vegan treats were easily found so you had to figure out how to make it yourself!  Thankfully now most of these healthy substitute ingredients can easily be found in the baking aisle at your local market or ordered online.
 
This is my take on a family and party favorite – the classic chocolate chip cookie. Although it is Gluten-Free Grain-Free Dairy-Free Paleo Low Glycemic with no processed sugar, it’s a real winner.
 
So here’s your chance to explore and develop your skills as a healthy baker! 
 
Chocolate Chip Cookies - Dairy-Free Gluten-Free Paleo Low Glycemic
 1 cup almond meal
1 cup coconut flour
4 tablespoons vegan butter substitute (or Coconut Oil)
1/3 cup Maple Syrup
1/3 cup Coconut Sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp Cinnamon (optional)
1 tsp almond extract (optional)
1 egg *
½ cup dark chocolate chips
Mix Maple syrup/Coconut Sugar and butter substitute until creamy, add extracts and egg (or egg substitute) and beat. Add almond meal and coconut flour and mix well, then add chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto greased or parchment lined cookie sheet and flatten a bit to a round, then bake in 300 degree preheated oven for 15-20 min until edges begin to brown.

There’s also a nut free and vegan version of the recipe on my website www.DoctoredDesserts.com
