Ingredients

  • 2 cups raw walnuts I think almonds or pecans would work here too. I like to use soaked/dehydrated walnuts for best digestion
  • 1 1/2 cups tapioca flour
  • 1/4 cup softened butter I think softened coconut oil would work
  • 2 eggs If you are egg free I do think 2 flax or chia eggs would work - the cookies might not puff up as much but they will have the bind
  • 5 dates pitted (If your kids are used to things sweeter I would add an extra 1-2 dates as these are on the mildly sweet side which my kids are used to)
  • 2 tsp aluminum free baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips I like to use the local organic brand our grocer carries or the Enjoy Life brand is great too

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Put the walnuts into a food processor and blend into a fine meal.
  • Add everything else EXCEPT the chocolate chips and blend until the dough is well combined.
  • Take the blade out and stir in the chocolate chips with a spatula.
  • Roll your cookies and flatten them on a Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet (Makes about 1 1/2 dozen large or 2 dozen small cookies) and bake at 350 degrees for 12-13 minutes. Cool a few minutes before handling.
