I’ve been following the Trim Healthy Mama way of eating and absolutely love it plus it doesn’t hurt that I’ve lost 20 pounds changing the way I eat. Gwen’s Nest recently posted a “Samoa” Milkshake that is THM ingredients approved. It is an absolute must try. So I decided since it was so good to make a cookie out of it. The base recipe is from Detoxinista.com with a few modifications so that it will fit Trim Healthy Mama.
“Samoa” Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 1/2 cups of almond flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 heaping tablespoons of coconut oil (melted)
1/4-1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
3-4 big shakes of Stevia concentrate or 3-4 dropper full of liquid stevia (to taste)
1/4 cup Hershey’s sugar-free chocolate chips
1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 teaspoon of maple flavoring
1 teaspoon of butter
First take the unsweetened coconut flakes, butter, maple flavoring, teaspoon of almond flour, 1 shake of stevia concentrate and toast until golden brown in a pan. While toasting take almond flour,baking soda, salt and mix together — Add toasted coconut mixture and mix. Then take coconut oil add to warm pan to melt. While that is melting add egg and sweetener (stevia) to mixture. Once coconut oil has cooled a bit add it to the mixture with vanilla extract. Mix well. Mixture should start to look like a cookie batter…then add sugar-free chocolate chips and mix. Scoop out or shape into balls then flatten with palm of hand.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper and Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes until golden brown . If you want to get real fancy you could drizzle skinny chocolate over cookie and cool in fridge.
