Matts Epic Canadian Maple Cookies!!!

exps12878_CK133085C05_07_1b

These cookies are some of the best Ive ever tasted. This recipe was given to me by the awesome Coach Matt Smith from Crossfit Perpetua Dublin.  We did a goodie swap during the Open this year Brownies for Cookies ! It was win , win all round ! As you probably guessed from the title I gave these cookies ,Matt hails from Canada the land of the Maple ! He and his beautiful wife to be Taylor have kept me in stock with Pure Canadian Maple Syrup after every one of their trips back ! Ive developed a taste for the good stuff now 🙂

INGREDIENTS 

  • 1 1/2 cups of Blanched Almond Flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, softened – very important that it is softened NOT melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 whole egg, or flax egg
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips – You can find a variety of healthier chocolate chip variations in all good health food stores. If you want to stay away from chocolate use macadamia nuts (Barbelle suggestion) .

METHOD

  • Preheat oven to 175 (~165 if fan)
  • Mix your dry ingredients together in a bowl
  • Add wet ingredients to dry and mix
  • Add chocolate chips and mix again
  • Use baking paper or a cookie sheet and make your cookie shapes (3 x 3 inch diameter  each cookie approx)
  • Put in the oven for 10-12 minutes (or until golden brown)

Enjoy

Disclaimer – If you make them you must share them with Matt ….its the rule! 🙂
