Mexican Style

I have been a busy bee today! I haven’t baked the pie I was going to…well I started to, and failed :D. Tomorrow I’m going to try a banana coconut flour cake and see how that turns out. When I woke up this morning I made a mug muffin(instead of blueberries I used chocolate chips) and watched the latest episode of Private Practice.

I decided to make cookies! I made 2 kinds of cookies, Coconut Flour Cookies and Hazelnut Chocolate Cookies. The Coconut Flour Cookies only contain 15 calories per cookie!! Every cookie loving girl’s dream ;).

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup hazelnut flour (grind up hazelnuts in a food processor)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 3.5 ounces 70% dark chocolate, cut into chunks
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, toasted
  • 2 eggs

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Blend all ingredients until honey is well-distributed.
  • Place small scoops of batter (about 2 tsp each) on a parchment-lined cookie sheet…leaving about 1-inch between cookies. Cook for approximately 10 minutes.
  • These cookies are crumbly when they first get out of the oven. Let them cool for about 30 minutes to give them time to set.

Enjoy even more!

The whole house smelled of cookies!

Before lunch I did another Insanity routine. Lunch was a whole wheat wrap with greens, sweet corn, celery, shredded carrots, cucumber, sunflower seeds, granny apple slices, and hummus.
