Well folks... hubby is back to work already. He is filling in for another guy at his squadron and has delayed his leave until later this week. This means two things: 1) a tired/jetlagged hubby 2) I have to make lunches again :s. I normally make the chocolate chip cookies I've included on this blog, but I recently found a seed/dried fruit mix (think trail mix for the nut allergy peeps) by Enjoy Life. I bought the Mountain Mambo blend, which is delish, and I wanted to incorporate it into a cookie recipe. So, I decided to bust out all the seeds in my house and give it a try.
This is what I started with:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1/3 cup coconut flour, sifted
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup honey
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup Enjoy Life Mini chips
1/3 cup Enjoy Life Mountain Mambo Seed & Fruit Mix
1 tablespoon hemp hearts
1 tablespoon flax seeds
In one bowl, whisk together your melted coconut oil, honey, eggs, and vanilla. Set aside. In a separate bowl, sift your coconut flour and then add in your sea salt, mini chips, seed/fruit mix, hemp hearts, and flax seeds.
Look at all that yumminess!!
Stir all the dry ingredients together and then add in the wet. Stir to combine. Let sit for 2-3 minutes to allow the coconut flour to absorb the liquid. It should look like this.
Scoop your dough onto a parchment/silpat-lined baking sheet. These cookies will not spread so wet your fingers and gently pat down the tops so they look more cookie-ish!
Bake for 10-12 minutes until they are golden around the edges. These cookies are best left to cool before eating as the seeds are kinda mushy when they are warm.
Once cooled, dig in! These cookies smell exactly like a granola bar and taste super yummy!
