Paleo Vanilla Bean Chocolate Chunk Cookies- Gluten and Nut free

06 Dec

vanilla beanWell, I am pretty sure these would have been good if I hadn’t burnt the crap out of them. But it’s okay because I am doing that sugar detox thing again and I am on day 5. Except I dont feel any skinnier or healthier, just annoyed that I cant eat sugar and that I burned $10 worth of Whole foods stuff. I was attempting to be a nice festive Account Executive tomorrow for my stores and while I delivered Christmas gifts I was going to give them cookies. Instead now I am just an annoyed Bah humbug fat feeling grouch. Maybe I will still give the burned cookies to the stores that arent making their numbers. hahahahaha. Thats mean. hee hee.

Also I think the fact that I havent been working out is starting to get to me. I hurt my shoulder recently and can’t do crossfit for a month so I am a little stir crazy. I have tried to do other things, but without the use of shoulders it gets kind of dull and my legs and bootie are thick enough, they don’t need any more squats. Damn shoulder. Damn cookies.

Okay, on to the recipe. Just dont burn them and I am sure they will taste good.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sunbutter
  • 1/3 cup raw honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 vanilla bean (without the seeds)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • dash of sea salt
  • 3/4 cup of Enjoy Life Chocolate Chunk Chips
  1. Mix all the ingredients minus the chocolate chips in a food processor. Add the chips at the very end but I mixed them in with a spoon. If you hit the button it chops them up.
  2. Put about a large spoonful of the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I used 2 sheets and each one held about 8 cookies.
  3. Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes. NOT 16-18 minutes. Unless you like charcoal bottom dry ass cookies. Then go ahead and forget about them a few minutes. I would personally take them out a little on the chewy side if I ever make these again, so there is my advice on that!

Now hopefully yours come out much better then mine! You could probably add some walnut pieces in these and they would be super good. Oh, and props to PaleOMG for the recipe. That is like my paleo cooking bible website. Love it.

(Okay I made them again. This time I put walnut pieces in it and baked them for 12 minutes, and as I thought…they are great!)
