274. Flourless Emergency Cookies [Gluten Free, Vegan, No Sugar Added]

Flourless Emergency Cookies | GF, Vegan, NSA| Ann Ning Learning How

I had an emergency on Monday.  A cookie emergency.

And then I had an emergency on Wednesday.

Twice.

These flourless cookies saved the day (all three times).  You can make them oatmeal raisin or chocolate chip, depending on your mood.  If you are truly allergic to gluten/dairy, use certified GF oats and DF chocolate chips.  If you’re just pretending like I am, you can play it loosey-goosey.

Emergency Cookies [GF, Vegan, NSA]

Makes 6-7 cookies; these mix up in a flash and bake up in the toaster oven.  Time elapsed from when you start mixing to when you taste one warm from the oven:  15-20 minutes

Preheat toaster oven to 350, grease a small baking sheet or line it with parchment paper or a silpat.

  • Approx. 2/3 c almond butter
  • 1/3 c applesauce
  • 1 Tbsp ground flax
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • splash of vanilla

for oatmeal raisin:

  • 2 Tbsp rolled oats
  • handful of raisins
  • dash of cinnamon

for chocolate chip:

  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut (you could sub oats or do 1 Tbsp coconut and 1 Tbsp arrowroot)
  • handful of chocolate chips

 

Mix the almond butter and applesauce.  When combined, add everything else in and stir well.  Mine fit in a 2-cup measuring cup with lots of room to spare.  Drop by the spoonful or a mini ice cream scoop onto your baking sheet.  Bake at 350 for 12 minutes.

  1. Could you use peanut butter for this instead of the almond butter? Someone in this house sometimes craves a lil’ something sweet for dessert and seeing as Baker Smurf doesn’t live here :(, more often that not, that someone is left disappointed. These could save the day, though…esp if I can use peanut butter which I always have on hand and he likes. Nothing like warm, fresh-baked cookies. Love that pic of my lil’ bubby. Sniff, sniff – he’s so big now! ❤

Comments, anyone? Thanks for saying "hi" :) (Sorry I can't reply all the time, but when I do the reply appears only on this blog unless I remember to reply via email.)
