Equipment

  • oven
  • baking sheet

Ingredients

Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate Glaze

  • ¼ cup cocoa butter or coconut oil
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 Tablespoons liquid sweetener of choice: low carb for Keto; maple syrup for Paleo; or honey for GAPS

Instructions

Chocolate Cookies

  • Grease two large cookie sheets, or line with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Place wet ingredients in blender: eggs, sweetener, coconut butter, and melted coconut oil. Puree until mixed, about 15 seconds. Scrape down sides and blend again if necessary.
  • Place dry ingredients together in medium-large mixing bowl: cocoa, flax, chia meal, sifted baking soda, and sea salt. Stir together. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and fold together thoroughly, without over-mixing.
  • Using a 1 ounce scoop, drop mounds of cookie dough onto cookie sheet. Bake until puffed, cracked and not too soft when pressed lightly on the surface, about 8 to 10 minutes, depending on the oven. (If larger cookies are desired, use a larger scoop.)
  • Cool. Chill in freezer for 10 minutes if you intend to make the glaze, as a cold cookie facilitates the dipping process.

Chocolate Glaze

  • In a small saucepan combine all ingredients over low heat until melted and mixed.
  • Spoon glaze decoratively over each cold cookie. It will harden slightly. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
