Almond, Coconut, And Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

1 Cup (100 g) Almond Meal (Ground Almond)
1 Cup (145 g) All-Purpose Flour
3 Tbsp (30 g) Powdered Sugar
¼ tsp Sea Salt
1 Stick (1/2 Cup) Unsalted Butter, cut into small pieces
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Large Egg Yolk
¼ Cup (20 g) Desiccated Coconut
Chocolate Chips

Method

In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond meal, flour, sugar, and sea salt. Mix the dry ingredients well with a whisk.

Rub the butter into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter, until it resembles coarse sand. Then add the vanilla and egg yolk. Use a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula and mix until the dry ingredients are almost entirely moistened and add the coconut and mix until just combined. Cover and refrigerate the dough for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 325˚F (170˚C). Line a cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper.

Pinch about 12 to 13g of the dough and shape into cherry-sized balls. Place the cookies 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet. Bake the cookies for about 18 to 20 minutes. Remove the cookies and push the chocolate chips into each cookie. Let cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

Makes about 35 cookies

  2. This sounds very good, I love almond meal and coconut. The recipe uses only the egg yolk which is perfect as I can use the egg white to make cocktail nuts! :)

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite!

Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
