Ever since I gave birth to our first baby, I have had a love affair with Karlie's Kookies. My love affair turned sour after I realized keeping our pantry stocked was no friend to my wallet. I have been looking at copy cat recipes for a few months (why are so many copy cat recipes SO bad!?), and have finally come up with one that works much better for me. Mix and bake any day over checking for the mailman every ten minutes, ya feel me?
These cookies aren't exactly Karlie's Kookies, but they hit the craving AND bonus, have no raw eggs making all the pregnant cookie dough munching a no brainer for me and our two year old.
From my kitchen to yours, these bad boys are best late at night, baby (or task list) down, feet up, with a nice tall glass of your favorite drink. Not to mention, they are packed with healthy fats, protein, and antioxidants. Winning.
olive oil bedtime cookies
- 2 c almond flour (I use Bob's Redmill fine almond flour)
- 1 c GF quick oats
- 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp cornstarch
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 c lightly toasted almond slivers
- 3/4 c dark chocolate chunks
- 1/2 c olive oil
- 1/4 c raw agave
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- preheat oven to 325F
- combine all dry ingredients in large mixing bowl and stir until evenly mixed
- add in wet ingredients
- scoop mix 2 (heaping) Tbsp at a time
- Shape by flattening in palms, and drop onto a non-stick (or parchment papered) baking sheet, smooth sides once placed on baking sheet
- Bake for 12 minutes, or until outside edges and bottoms have browned
- let cool for at least 20 minutes (for real...they will retain their shape if you let them cool completely), or crumble into bits and sprinkle over yogurt or ice cream
- dream all the good cookie dreams
This recipe should make 9 medium-large cookies, but yeah right because I always eat at least one cookie worth in mix so there's that. Happy eating!
