Chocolate Chip Cricket Cookies

Makes 18 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 2/3 cup raw brown sugar or coconut palm sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose cricket flour
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼-1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips/chunks
  • ½ cup slivered almonds

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the oats, cricket flour, flaxseed, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
  3. In the bowl of your electric mixer, beat the coconut oil and almond butter on medium speed until creamy. Add in the sugar and beat on medium to high speed until sugar is thoroughly incorporated (about 3-4 minutes) scraping down the sides of the bowl if needed.
  4. Add in the egg, beating until combined, about 2 minutes. Add in the vanilla extract and beat until combined again.
  5. Gradually add in the dry ingredients, beating on low speed until just combined and mixed. Stir in the chocolate chips, and chopped almonds with a spatula until they are evenly dispersed.
  6. To bake immediately: Scoop the dough into ½ -inch rounds and place on a baking sheet about 1-2 inches apart. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes at 350 degrees (until the bottoms are just golden).
  7. To freeze for later baking: Scoop the dough into 1-inch rounds and place on a plate or baking sheet (they can be pretty well touching), and put freeze for 2-3 hours or overnight until solid. Put balls of cookie dough in Ziploc bags for storage. Cookies can be baked from frozen, though the time will likely be a little closer to 12-13 minutes – it will be an additional 1-2 minutes if you bake from frozen.
