Complements: The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook
1/3 cup softened virgin coconut oil
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup walnuts (or pecans), ground (optional)
2-4 tablespoons whole cane sugar
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1 cup organic brown rice flour
1/2 cup arrowroot powder
1/3 cup organic cocoa powder (vegan if necessary)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon xanthan gum

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place coconut oil, maple syrup, ground walnuts, sugar, sea salt, vanilla and almond extract into a medium bowl and blend on high with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes. In a separate bowl, mix together the brown rice flour, arrowroot powder, cocoa powder, baking powder and xanthan gum. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and gently mix together with a fork or wooden spoon until well combined. Fold in chocolate chips. Grease a cookie sheet with coconut oil. Form dough into balls then gently flatten between the palms of your hands. Place on the cookie sheet. Bake for about 12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Cookies will harden as they cool. Enjoy!
