Happy Saturday, peeps 🙂
Did you hear my girl Taylor Swift is back on Spotify?? I’m currently one of the happiest girls listening to her right this moment. I heard it was something to do with Katy Perry, but don’t really know what’s going on. Let me know if you have any idea why she decided to come back to Spotify!
Anyways, I’m coming at you today with an amazing cookie recipe. This is healthy and could be gluten free! I made my version vegan because it’s just how I roll, but feel free to use eggs. The flax eggs worked really well with this recipe. My sister, niece and nephew loved it! They didn’t even realized it was healthy until I named all the ingredients in it. I love the kick of lemon and coconut in this — such a great combination!
Alright, here is the recipe!
It’s super simple and doesn’t take too much time to put together 🙂
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, get ready the flax egg: for 3 “eggs” you will need 3 tbsp of flax meal and 9 tbsp of water mixed together. Let that sit for 5-10 minutes.
Add all the dry ingredients together, then add the lemon zest.
Next, add the vanilla extract, almond milk and flax eggs.
You’re going to use some muscles to mix this up! Mix around until all the ingredients are mixed well. It will take a few minutes to get it to a “wet” mixture. Then, you can roll it into small ball sized pieces and throw it in the oven for 15 minutes! I put almonds on some to experiment with it, but it’s not necessary.
I ran out of parchment paper, so ideally use that if you have it. If not, you can use coconut oil spray to make sure it doesn’t stick.
Let cool in a drying rack for about 10 minutes. Then enjoy 🙂
