This is an awesome recipe I have adapted from my niece Anna, as in “Anna’s Primal Brownies” from a previous post. The original recipe is made with almond meal and they are most delicious! Always a favorite of my family and they never last the day when everyone is home. This recipe substitutes the almond meal with hazelnut flour/meal and topped with a sprinkle of sea salt.
1 ½ cups of hazelnut flour/meal
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons coconut oil, softened
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
¼ cup pure maple syrup
1 whole egg
½ cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium size bowl combine the hazelnut flour, baking soda and salt. Mix well.
In a separate bowl combine the coconut oil, vanilla, maple syrup and egg. Mix well
Then add the wet mixture to the dry. Mix the two together until they are blended well and have a batter consistency.
Then stir in chocolate chips ( you can always add or select other ingredients for variety….nuts…raisins…coconut)
Using a spoon drop the batter onto a cookie sheet. I use a silicone cooking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Edges and top will be a golden brown. I also turn the pan half way through cooking. I then sprinkle with a little sea salt.
These cookies last longer and taste exceptionally well when cold from the refrigerator or even freezer. Enjoy!
