My mind is still blown over these flourless chocolate chip cookies! When they come out of the oven and you bite into one, you are instantly taken back to a traditional chewy, melty chocolate chip cookie. They taste like regular cookie dough. Amazing! Really. If they have no flour, no sugar, no dairy, no egg, what in the hell do they have in them, you ask?
Chewy chocolate chip cookies
2 cups raw cashews (soaked in water overnight)*
1/4 cup maple syrup
pinch of sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup chocolate chips
* You can use 1 1/2 cups store-bought cashew butter but making your own is easy:
Put soaked cashews in food processor and blend for almost five minutes until smooth and creamy.
Set oven to 350º.
Put all ingredients, except chocolate chips, in food processor (or Vitamix) and blend until smooth.
Drop by spoonful onto cookie sheet, press down with spoon, just a tad to flatten slightly, and bake for 10 minutes.
These taste best right out of the oven. They get softer the next day but still delicious.
That's it. Enjoy!

Unfortunately, this event has been cancelled. Stayed tuned for future events.
I have teamed up once again with Prairie Yogi Magazine (PYM) to co-teach a yoga event in Saskatoon and it promises to be a lovely morning yoga and food event, two of my favourite things!
I've written for PYM (here, here, and here) and this past fall, I was lucky enough to teach at the first ever Prairie Love Festival in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where Eoin Finn dug my "goddess of chill" nickname.
PYM is helping to create a prairie yoga community and I'm grateful to be involved!
Yoga and brunch is on Sunday, November 30 at 10am at the Wanuskewin Heritage Park. (There is also a Regina event on November 29.)
Create a beautiful day!
I love baking as the weather gets cooler and the cookies above are as delicious as they look! Everyone has been asking me for the recipe for these flourless, peanut butter, sea-salted chocolate gems. Here you go! The trick is to underbake them. Seriously, bake them less then what you think you should, depending on your oven.
Flourless peanut butter cookies
1 cup natural "just peanuts" peanut butter
1 cup coconut sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 beaten egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
chunks of good quality sea salt chocolate
Combine everything (except chocolate) together with spatula. Drop by spoonful onto cookie sheet and top with chocolate chunks.
Bake for 8-12 minutes (I baked for 8) at 350º.
