Double Dark Chocolate Chip and Almond Coconut Oatmeal Cookies step by step
- Mix 1/4 cup of oats and 1/4 cup almonds into a food processor and chop coarsely. Mix flour, cocoa powder, sea salt, baking soda, 1/4 cup (half of total for the recipe) of the fine cane sugar and the chopped oats/almonds into a large mixing bowl.
- In a sauce pan start to brown 2 sticks (about 1 cup) of salted butter. As soon as the first sign of browning occurs remove from heat and stir to help cool faster. Add 1-2 tbsp cold water to quickly stop browning action just as it completes. While still hot melt in 1/4 cup dark brown sugar. After brown sugar is fully melted add 2 tbsp cold pressed coconut oil (it's important not to "cook" the oil but the mixture needs to stay warm..
- While browning or while butter is cooling mix 2 eggs and 1 egg yolk with 1/4 cup whole milk into a separate bowl. Beat until fluffy like scrambled eggs (or whip) – tiny air bubbles are required. Add other 1/4 cup of cane sugar and 2 tbsp almond extract and beat/whip further..
- Beat in the warm butter mixture to the eggs (make sure butter is not too hot to touch or it will cook the eggs). Make a cup with the dry mix, then pour half of the fluffy egg/butter mixture into the powder cup..
- Using a spatula fold the powder over the liquids and "roll" the mix. After its sufficiently mixed, add the Choc chips and pour the rest of the liquids over the mix and continue to roll the dough. Be sure to pass through the center of the ball forming so all dry ingredients get sufficiently mixed..
- [Optional] Refrigerate dough for 4 hours minimum, up to 48 before sheeting..
- Preheat the oven to 375-F. Oil two baking sheets (I recommend using coconut oil). Spoon or pinch 3×3"blobs about 2" apart. I fit 12 to a standard baking sheet. Bake in center of oven for 13-16 min (I did 14m for standard Natural Gas oven).
- Immediately remove from oven and rapid cool the sheets as fast as possible. (It was winter here so I put them on the back porch for 5 minutes). Makes about 2 dozen cookies..
- Store in closed metal tin or freezer bag with slice of bread and paper towel..
If you know someone who loves to bake, a jar of cookie mix is a great homemade gift. Just a batch of dark chocolate almond oatmeal cookies, which I almost threw a handful of dried cranberries into in an effort to up the festive factor, but sometimes a girl wants nothing but chocolate. And while they may not scream Christmas, I'm sure Santa wouldn't mind. It reminded me of the Double Tree Chocolate Chip cookies they used to give out at their hotel, but better. These gluten-free cookies that require just a few ingredients (that's my kind of recipe) and contain three of my favorite flavors: chocolate, coconut and almond.
