You may already be enjoying my delicious chewy choc chip cookies (recipe here), but because they are made with almond meal they pose a lunch box dilemma with nut-free schools.  So, I got to work in the kitchen and created a nut free, chewy choc chip cookie that even my (very) fussy kids approve of!  As usual I have included both Thermomix and Non-Thermomix instructions below.  I hope you enjoy them!

The Shrinking Hubby’s Nut Free Choc Chip Cookies

(Refined Sugar Free, Gluten free, Grain free)

Makes 10 – 12 cookies

Ingredients:

  • 50 grams (about 4 large) medjool dates, pitted
  • 3 organic, free-range eggs
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 50 grams (3 1/2 tablespoons) butter (or coconut oil can be used here too)
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot (tapioca) flour
  • 1/3 cup best quality dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 pinch sea salt

Thermomix Method:

Add the dates, butter, eggs, salt, maple syrup and vanilla to the mixing bowl.  Mix speed 8, 10 seconds.  Scrape down bowl.

Add the coconut flour and arrowroot flour, mix speed 4, 10 seconds.  Scrape down bowl.  Mix another few seconds speed 4.

Add the choc chips (or chocolate) and mix reverse, speed 1 for 5 seconds.

Using your hands, roll into balls and flatten with your palm.

Bake in a moderate oven (180 degrees celcius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit) for 10 minutes or until cooked.  Careful as they can burn easily.

If you don’t have a Thermomix:

Add the dates, butter, eggs, salt, maple syrup and vanilla to a food processor and blitz until well combined.  Transfer to a bowl and stir through the coconut and arrowroot flours.  Once well mixed, stir through the choc chips until evenly spread throughout.

Using your hands, roll into balls and flatten with your palm.

Bake in a moderate oven (180 degrees celcius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit) for 10 minutes or until cooked.  Careful as they can burn easily.
