Description

Blood orange & oat chocolate chip cookies are a fun and slightly healthier take on chocolate chip cookies! The blood orange chocolate and orange zest give these thin and crispy cookies a note of citrusy freshness!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup creamy unsweetened almond butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 tsp. blood orange zest
  • 1 bar blood orange dark chocolate ( I used this one), chopped into pieces

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl with a wooden spoon mix together almond butter, vanilla and egg until well combined. In a separate bowl whisk together almond flour, coconut sugar, oats, baking soda and salt.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir together until all mixed together. Fold in the blood orange zest.
  4. Use a cookie scoop to portion out the dough onto the baking sheet. Use the back of your hand to press the cookies down slightly.
  5. Sprinkle chopped chocolate on top of each cookie.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven, and sprinkle extra flakey sea salt on top, let cool and enjoy!

Notes

For maximum freshness store in an airtight container, you can also freeze them.
