Chocolate Chip Cookies

The time has come, I confess, I’m not a raw foodist. But wait! I have a very good excuse…errreason. Way back in the summer I worked on a farm in Wisconsin and my raw lifestyle, well, it kind of ended. I was working hard and eating off the land, so I wasn’t worried about all the cooked food I had suddenly added to my diet.

Needless to say I lived! I made it out alive, and today I have a new perspective. The main reason I’m still not eating mostly raw (I haven’t ever been 100% except for seasons) is after returning home from my farming adventure I lost my appetite. Due to some personal trauma and an abusive relationship I sunk into a depression, lost a ton of weight, and only ate what I could stomach. That ended up being things I wouldn’t normally eat, but I had to eat something.

I’m doing much better these days and have been good about adding good ol’ kale and buckwheat back into my regular diet (they were always some of my favs). However, running to Jesus and admitting I needed help is the best thing I did/I’m doing, and so life goes.

With all of that being said, this is a new recipe! Finally! Wooo! Yes! :D I’m eager to get back to sharing healthy recipes with you all, which will in turn motivate me to come up with new and delicious raw and sometimes just plain ol’ healthy hearty cooked recipes. That’s where this recipe lands, cooked, but made out of nutrient rich goodness!




Chocolate Chip Cookies
4 c flour (I LOVE buckwheat*, but almond, oat, any gluten free, etc. works)
1 c coconut oil
2/3 c raw honey
2 eggs
1 t baking soda
1/4 t Celtic Sea salt
chocolate chips (as many or as little as you like)

Preheat oven to 350. Mix ingredients except chocolate chips. Add chocolate chips. Drop teaspoon amounts on to parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Bake for 10 mins. Enjoy!

*I found that I need to add an extra egg when using just buckwheat flour.

  1. Looks like a great recipe. I am definitely gonna try this soon :) so sorry to hear about your past relationship but so great to hear how you went to the right place for healing! It was so cool cause I was just writing about the lady who touched gsus’ robe and was healed of bleeding and how more often than not I am not like her. I usually try everything to heal myself and then finally run to him, the great thing is, he is always there with open arms no matter how long we wait. Blessings :)

  2. This looks like such a simple, good-for-you recipe! I can’t wait to try it out. :) And those pictures are just lovely, by the way.

    You will remain in my prayers, Hannah! <3

    Love,
    Lauren

  3. I rejoice with you in your new freedom in Christ! It is so amazing when He breaks strongholds and chains. I praise God for your continued healing and am happy to know you are enjoying healthy, cooked foods. Continue to follow hard after God. He will honor your honoring Him :)

    Many hugs,
    Mirakol

  4. this recipe looks so wonderfully simple.. I have to try it.
    I am so excited to find you back (saw a recipe of yours on Pinterest) and see that you have over come some challenges. will come visiting again.

  5. Have you made these with gluten free flour? And also, have you found chocolate chips void of a lot of sugar? I am trying to stay as sugar free as possible. :)

  6. Kate: I’ve only made them with buckwheat, almond, and oat, but I assume a gf flour would work…? I think your best bet on the chocolate chips would be a health food store that sells a variety, or you can make chocolate chunks out of a high cocoa content chocolate bar. And if you’re feeling really pure you can just use cacao nibs :)

  7. Glad to hear you’re back, and you’re reconnected with the best friend anyone could ever have. :-)

    Thanks for this recipe — looks delicious! I’ll be using chocolate chunks from our omega 3 & probiotic chocolate — even more yummy and more nutrients. ;-) http://www.Omega3Chocolate.com for info.

    Looking forward to more of your recipes! Here’s to Spring and new beginnings!

  8. I tried these this evening, and they turned out so well! For flour, I combined oat, almond, brown rice and arrowroot. Another lovely recipe!

  9. This is just the type of recipe I was looking for! Gluten free, white sugar free, dairy free! :)
    Have you ever made it with just oat flour (all 4 cups),or do you combine it with another flour? Also, should the coconut oil be melted, or just left as is?
    Thanks! Can’t wait to try these!

  10. Alison: Good! Yes, I have made this using just oats. I ground some oats to a flour and used some rolled. I’ve also combined it with another flour :) I’ve made these cookies so many time and each time the flour combo is a little different. The last batch I used some dried quinoa flakes as the flour! The coconut oil works best soft to liquid, because you combine ingredients by hand. However, it can be in any form and won’t effect the results.

  11. These photos are beautiful! I just came over to your site for the first time from Pinterest, and I love your photos, your focus on whole foods and your open love of Jesus. : ) Kindred spirit! Adding these to my list of cookies to make soon.
