A beautiful, inspiring short article about living from mindbodygreen:
Last weekend Mike and I spent Saturday night in watching a movie and basically just chilling. I was craving something sweet so I decided to whip up a batch of my favorite GF chocolate chip cookies! They are pretty simple and easy to make. Best of all – they taste great – especially right out of the oven! There’s nothing better than a freshly baked cookie! I got this recipe a while ago and have been tinkering with it ever since (unfortunately I honestly don’t know where I found the original recipe).
I usually double the recipe so we can have more cookies. Doubled recipe = approx. 36 cookies
GF Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 cup rice flour
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips
Mix together the rice flour, almond four, baking soda, and salt in one bowl. In another bowl mix together the melted coconut oil, honey, egg, and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry. Mix thoroughly. Add in the chocolate chips (and whatever else you would like – shredded coconut, chopped walnuts, raisins, etc).
Once everything is mixed place the dough in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. During this time I preheat the oven to 375F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Scoop up a spoonful of cookie dough, roll it between your hands to create a ball and place on the cookie sheet. I use my palm to flatten the ball a little in order to create a cookie shape as opposed to have cookie balls. Bake the cookies for about 8 minutes.
Take out and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Enjoy!
I was browsing the old web the other day and came across a recipe for five ingredient Paleo fudge. I was totally intrigued. I love baking. I love fudge. I love baking fudge. And baking fudge with only five easy ingredients? Sign me up! Bodhi on the other hand was less than thrilled…
So I gave the recipe a try and it turned out fantastic! Mike LOVED the fudge so I think it’s a winner! Here’s the recipe, found on Fit Bottomed Eats:
5 Ingredient Fudge
- 1/2 cup Coconut Oil, melted
- 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
- 1/2 cup Almond Butter
- 1/4 cup Honey (I only put about 2-3 Tbl in my batch)
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla
- Handful Mini Chocolate Chips (yes I know this is the 6th ingredient but I couldn’t resist adding them to my fudge!)
Add the first five ingredients to your blender. Blend. I poured my batter into an 8×8 casserole dish (on the original recipe post she pours hers into cupcake/muffin cups). I then sprinkled mine with mini chocolate chips and chilled in the fridge for about 30-60 minutes.
Make sure you store your fudge in either the fridge or the freezer. It tends to melt in your hands fairly quickly!
