OATMEAL” CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES



Grain-free low carb “oatmeal” cookies, just like Grandma used to make! Okay, not exactly, but a healthy stand in for oats makes these cookies taste like the real thing.



Ingredients

1 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
3/4 cup sliced almonds
1 cup almond flour
1 tbsp coconut flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup Swerve Sweetener
1 large egg, room temperature
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sugar-free chocolate chips such as Lily's

































































instructions

Preheat oven to 325F and line a large baking sheet with parchment or a silicone liner.
In the bowl of a food processor, combine the flaked coconut and sliced almonds. Process until mixture resembles oatmeal. Add almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt and pulse a few times to combine.


In a large bowl, beat butter with sweetener until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla extract and then beat in coconut/almond mixture until well combined. Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
Form into balls a little over 1 inch in diameter and place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet. With the heel of your hand, press cookies down to about 1/2 inch thickness.
Bake 15 to 18 minutes, until golden brown around the edges and just barely firm to the touch. Remove and let cool on pan.
