Hey guys! Can you believe is almost September already? Sometimes I think about the year so far and I seriously don’t understand why it feels like months are flying! I guess that happens when you’re so busy and life is just on the move all the time.
Right now I’m back home visiting my family in Mexico, took a month of my summer vacations to come and enjoy the sunny weather, family and of course FOOD! If you follow me on my other social media like Instagram or Facebook you’re probably aware as well that I’ve been traveling a lot lately and spent part of my summer in Thailand. Sorry for the lack of posts, but you can imagine how busy it can be sometimes to just keep all my social media updated + life + having a social life!
Today’s recipe is a super simple, fun one to try. I haven’t done much lately with coconut flour so I felt like doing something different.
These super easy but delish cookies are low carb, amazing source of fibre, Omega 3, healthy fats and were actually pretty successful with non-vegans, so it’s worth giving it a try!
Gastrawnomica’s Low Carb Blueberry VEGAN Chocolate Cookies
Makes 5 medium cookies
1/2 cup sifted coconut flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder, aluminium free
1 1/2 Tbsp cacao powder (or carob)
1/4 cup fresh blueberries
1/4 cup agave nectar or maple or coconut syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil
1-2 Tbsp almond milk
2 chia eggs (2 Tbsp whole chia seeds + 6 Tbsp water)
Toppings: Macadamia, almond or any other nut butter, dried mulberries..
Mix dry ingredients first. Add agave, coconut oil, chia eggs and mix well until a soft dough starts forming. Add blueberries and almond milk as needed, add a little bit more if too dry.
Shape into small circles and bake at 180ºC for 20-30 min until soft but slightly crispy on the edges.
Let it cool down a bit and drizzle nut butter, chocolate sauce or any other thing you want. Voilà! Cookies are ready and you can munch on them all day!
As you can see it is super simple and you will be surprise how yummy they are even though you only need few ingredients and will take no time!
