^^That chocolate souffle looks amazing, Nancy! Will have to try that.
Just made these today. As close to paleo as I have ever gotten with cookies, hah. They have great flavor and remind me of carrot cake. Texture is dense, like a date bar (not like traditional cookies, obv). The cauliflower was an experiment (think zucchini bread) and made 'em nice and moist. The raw cocoa nibs are a special ingredient I had on hand that add an interesting flavor. Lotsa iron and antioxidants.
Lauren's Paleo Cookies
4T coconut oil
2T almond butter
1/4c flax meal
1/2c pecan meal
1/4c organic xylitol (to avoid GMO)
3/4c organic erythritol
1/4t stevia (sweetleaf english toffee flavored is great)
1/4c chopped pecans
¼ cup raw pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
1/4c chopped almonds
6-8 raw cocoa beans chopped, or 1/8c raw cocoa nibs
1t vanilla extract or the inside of a bean
Cream coconut oil, nut butter, and sugar replacers. Stir in the rest of dry ingredients. Cook 1c cauliflower until tender (eh, used the microwave), drain, and press moisture out of the florets with a paper towel. Puree. Add to dough with vanilla and egg.
Drop on baking sheet and press down with a fork. Bake 45 minutes at 300 degrees for cakier less "done" cookies. I guess you'd turn the over hotter and bake for a shorter time for crisper cookies. I didn't want to heat the dough up too much.
About 22g ECC for the batch. I got 12 cookies out of it.
