What You Need To Make This 10 Minutes Healthy Cookies Recipe?
Peanut Butter: Whenever I want a taste of childhood comfort my go-to is peanut butter. Don’t be afraid to get creative and try nut butter that resonates with your soul. Each one brings its blend of flavors.
Coconut Oil: There’s something, about coconut oil that feels like an ingredient. It adds a touch of sweetness. However if you’re in the mood for that classic buttery flavor, unsalted butter works beautifully.
Erythritol: Personally I prefer using Erythritol because it adds a light and sweet touch without any guilt. Hey, life is about choices! Feel free to use whichever sweetener puts a smile on your face.
Vanilla: Adding a teaspoon of vanilla extract isn’t merely an ingredient; it’s like giving your senses an embrace that takes the flavors to another level of comforting harmony.
Eggs: To bring everything together seamlessly I like using one egg along with a white. It’s like those moments in our kitchens that bind us closely to our loved ones.
Coconut Flour: Not only is coconut flour gluten-free. It also gives these cookies a tender and soft texture that you can’t help but fall in love with—a wholesome treat, for your body.
Baking Soda: Sometimes it’s the details that really make a difference. For instance adding a teaspoon of baking soda to our cookie recipe gives them the amount of fluffiness and lightness.
A Pinch of Salt: Don’t forget about a pinch of salt! It’s, like finding that balance in life. Adding a pinch of salt to any recipe enhances. Complements the sweetness reminding us of the wonderful variety, in life flavors.
Chocolate Chips: When it comes to chocolate chips I prefer using sugar ones to add moments of joy to our cookies. Course you can choose any type of chocolate chips that make your heart skip a beat.
Steps To Make 10 Minutes Healthy Cookies:
Step 1: To begin grab a bowl. Add your preferred nut butter whether it’s smooth peanut butter or another variety. This will serve as the foundation, for our cookie’s flavor.
Step 2: Next pour in some melted coconut oil (or butter if you desire a richer taste). Follow this with your chosen sweetener, vanilla extract, a whole egg and an extra egg white to help bind everything.
Step 3: Now comes the secret ingredient; coconut flour. It’s what gives these cookies their delightful texture. Mix it in along with baking soda to help them rise and a pinch of salt to balance out the sweetness.
Step 4: Here comes the fun part. Gently fold in those chocolate chips! Remember to set some for topping on.
Step 5: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Let it sit in the freezer for 20 minutes. This will make the dough easier to work with.
Step 6: Once chilled use an ice cream scoop to shape the dough and place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Gently flatten them slightly. Sprinkle those chocolate chips on top.
Step 7: Bake these beauties in an oven at 180°C (350°F) for 15 to 20 minutes. Keep an eye, on them as they transform into the perfection that’s simply irresistible!
One great tip that can really enhance the flavor and texture of these 10 Minutes Healthy Cookies is to make sure you give the dough time to chill. Once you’ve mixed all the ingredients together I highly recommend popping the dough into the freezer for 20 minutes before baking. This effort isn’t just about making it more leisurely to handle the dough; it actually makes a distinction in how your cookies turn out.
Chilling the dough lets the moisture in the coconut flour be thoroughly absorbed, resulting in a uniform texture for each cookie. It also helps solidify the fats in both the nut butter and coconut oil slightly which means your cookies won’t spread much during baking giving you a more satisfying bite. Additionally this short resting period allows all of those flavors to blend together beautifully resulting in a more harmonious taste.
Remember patience is key here. Even if it means waiting 20 minutes, for something good!
Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I use almond flour instead of coconut flour?
Certainly you can substitute almond flour. However please note that the texture might vary slightly. You may need to adjust the quantity since almond flour is not as absorbent, as coconut flour.
How can I store these cookies?
To keep these cookies fresh store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week. If you want to extend their shelf life you can also freeze them.
Can I make these cookies vegan?
Absolutely! To make these cookies vegan simply replace the egg with a flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 2.5 tablespoons of water). Additionally ensure that your chocolate chips are suitable, for a vegan diet.
