I am on the board for the Taos affiliate of Habitat for Humanity. This year our annual fundraiser included a dessert table Silent Auction. I made an apple & pear crisp, cornmeal thumbprint cookies with chocolate ganache filling (shared over on my Napa Farmhouse 1885 blog) and the chocolate, almond and ginger cookies. I received rave reviews for everything which makes me so happy as "non-health lovers" loved these good-for-you treats. I hope you do too... Enjoy!
Chocolate, Almond & Ginger Cookies
(makes 24 cookies)
1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tbsp coconut sugar
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
3/4 tsp ginger
1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
additional coconut sugar for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Combine first seven ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Add the olive oil and vanilla. Using a wooden spoon, stir to incorporate wet into dry. Dough will be very wet. Using your hands, form dough into small balls about 1 inch in diameter. Press the tines of a fork into the ball to flatten. (if cookies crack, press dough together with your fingers.) Sprinkle additional coconut sugar over cookies.
Bake in preheated oven for 8-9 minutes. Do not overcook. Cookies will harden after cooling. Remove from oven and cool 5 minutes on sheet. Place on wire racks until completely cool.
