Chocolatey Nutty Cookies (Dairy, Egg, Gluten/Grain and Regfined Sugar Free)

These grain free cookies have a texture more like a granola bar.  They are packed full of energy and protein.  A bean grinder or food processor will be needed to crush up the seeds and nuts.

Ingredients (makes a dozen)
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup ground walnuts or other nuts (almonds, cashews)
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 1/3 cup ground flax or chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup ground sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup ground unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup honey or other natural sweeteners
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1-2 tablespoons water if needed

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a medium size bowl combine all ingredients and mix until fully blended.
  3. Drop the dough by heaping tablespoon size balls onto a cookie sheet and flatten slightly with a fork. 
  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
