Afterschool (or work) Snack

>> Tuesday, July 1, 2008

Oh yeah, forgot school's out but you get my drift.

I’m sure many of you are familiar with Carmella of the Sunny Raw Kitchen. I mean, seriously, how could you not be? Her creations are nothing short of amazing and I practically drool every time I visit her blog, which is often. Daily even! Anyway, one of her recent posts was a recipe for chocolate chip cookies.

Your eyes do not deceive. I truly said Chocolate.Chip.Cookies!!!!!!!!!!! (I know it’s a little excessive with the ! but they’re appropriate believe me.)

These cookies are so good that I made them twice in less than a week. And I think I ate most of them.

Before I go further, I should point out this isn't a Carmella-original but one she featured on her blog. I thank her for it as I don't always get around to the various forums as much as I'd like.

I followed some of the adjustments she and others made (noted on her post) to the recipe such as cutting the amount of coconut oil in half. The first time I made these I used strictly coconut oil and the second time I decreased the oil a little bit and made up for it by adding in some coconut butter for a little more richness. Not that it needed it. This is one of those recipes you just can’t go wrong.

For the chocolate chips I used raw cacao paste, chopped into small chunks. Because the dough itself is sweet the lack of sweet in the chocolate wasn’t missed. And believe me, I’d know! One of these days for even more extra richness I’d like to make some slightly sweetened up raw choco-chips.

Here are my cookies which are now in my belly. I tried making them look like Carmella’s but not quite. Looks like I didn't process the nuts long enough either but oh well - they were d-lish anyway.

Now, go make ‘em and snack away!
