Classic chocolate chip cookies are my favorite. I love them just a little crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside.
I get that sometimes when you try to "healthify" a classic cookie recipe sometimes it can turn out to be more like a muffin top then a cookie texture. I PROMISE these are NOT that. If you use all the ingredients I list and do not make any substitutions, you will get your crispy and gooey chocolate chip cookies. I love this recipe because it uses very few ingredients, one bowl, and is ready in about 15-20 min (if you count the cooling time). So dig in, and comment below and let me know how you enjoy them!
1.) Preheat Oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
2.) Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl, add the wet ingredients and mix well.
3.)Fold in Chocolate Chips
4.) scoop two tablespoons to form cookies (batter should make 10 large cookies or 15 med sized). Sprinkle with sea salt.
5.) Bake for 11-12 min (or until golden brown). Let them cool for about 5-10min before removing .
I love me some crunchy granola, but the cleaner the granola is, the more expensive! The granolas that are cheapies tend to have a whole load of crapola in them. Granola is one of the easiest things to bake on your own. It requires very little time, and once done you can store it in a jar on the counter for up to a week! (hello healthy cereals, and snacking). This granola will have your kitchen smelling AMAZING. (My neighbor even reached out to me asking if I was baking because our hallways smelt incredible. (So if anything whip some of this up before you have people over and have your place smelling like professional bakery).
With all the right ingredients these are entirely gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and plant-based. If you want the recipe a little sweeter can add in some coconut sugar or extra maple syrup.
For thick granola chunks make sure to keep some of the granola pressed together but dont just leave it all in a pile. Need to make sure it bakes evenly.
Throwing in the coconut last for 5 minutes was a money move. Toasted it just enough without over cooking.
Lets get to the recipe!
1.) Preheat oven to 350. line a baking sheet with parchment paper (do not spray)
2.) In a med bowl mix dry ingredients (dont add coconut flakes yet).
3.) add wet ingredients to dry and mix well.
4.) Transfer mixture to baking sheet and bake for 15min.
5.) Take out of oven and mix in coconut flakes
6.) put back in the oven for 5 minutes
7.) Let the granola cool for 10min so some of the pieces dry and clump together for crunchier granola.
I was making banana bread the other night (I promised some co workers that I would bring in a treat for an early meeting). Then, turns out, I accidentally posted in a larger group channel that I would bake for them. (Insert panic mode) Sometimes mistakes lead to great things, and thats how these paleo banana maple glaze donuts were born!
I quickly scrambled when I got home since I was missing ingredients for two loaves of banana bread. Thats when I decided to give the donuts a try. Also I have had the jar of maple butter from Trader Joes in my fridge for a bit now, and decided it was ime to do something with it.
This recipe is super simple. Requires one bowl, and for the glaze you dont have to have any artistic skills like you do sometimes with icing.
I also used silicon donut trays (which makes clean up easier and also require no cooking spray)
If you remake this recipe make sure to tag me on Instagram. I love to see your re create my recipes! If Instagram isnt your jam, leave a comment below!
Paleo Banana Maple Glazed Donuts:
Directions: (makes about 12-14)
1.) Preheat oven to 375.
2.) Mix wet ingredients, and then add in dry ingredients.
3.) Fold in mini chips
4.) Add batter to donut trays (if using silicon ones above dont need to spray). I scooped 1/4 cup into each holder.
5.) bake for 15-16 min. Until tops are golden brown and if poked with a toothpick comes out clean.
6.) Let them cool for for 5 minutes and then place them on a wire rack to cool for another 10,
7.) with a butter knife add a 1/2 tbsp of maple butter to the top of each one (it will dry as a clear glaze). You can also drizzle with maple syrup if you dont have a TJ's nearby.
