About the author

FitMenCook

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is truly a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and enjoying adequate exercise. By experimenting in the kitchen and openly sharing my meals, I learned that healthy eating is hardly boring and that by making a few adjustments, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my personal fitness goals. Our bodies are built in the kitchen and sculpted in the gym.

Gluten-free Double Chocolate Chip Olive Oil Cookies

Ingredients

Gluten-free Double Chocolate Chip Olive Oil Cookies
Ingredients for 14 cookies

  • Dry
    • 2 cups + 2 tbsp almond flour
    • 1/4 cup cacao or dark chocolate powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Wet
    • 1/3 cup agave (or syrup or honey)
    • 1/3 olive oil (or avocado oil)
    • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup vegan dark chocolate chips (using Stevia)
  • 1/2 cup crushed pecans (optional)
  • garnish
    • sea salt flakes
Steps
  1. Set oven  to 350F.
  2. Mix together the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  3.  In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry bowl and fold everything together until well-mixed.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips (and nuts).
  5. Line a baking tray with parchment paper, then evenly scoop out cookies – preferably using an ice cream scoop or a large spoon – then add them to the parchment paper.  Roll up each cookie into a ball, then gently mash it down on the parchment.  Ensure there’s space between the cookies. IF desired, add a pinch of sea salt flakes to each cookie.
  6. Bake for 12 – 17 minutes, or until the edges have lightly browned.
