I’ve got a fun and delicious gift for you today…and it’s a gift you can give any of the wellness-conscious people on your holiday list.
It’s a vegan and paleo-friendly cookie mix!
You can make it yourself – or you can layer the ingredients in a mason jar for a fun and festive holiday gift.
I mean, who doesn’t love cookies?
Especially when they taste amazing AND they also happen to be healthier than your average chocolate chip cookies.
As my friend and Health Coach, Audrey Byker says, “While not for those looking to reverse insulin resistance or diabetes, healthier sweet treats are excellent for anyone desiring to replace refined sugar with clean, delicious eats!”
They’re gluten-free, lower in sugar and carbs, and higher in fiber than traditional cookies. Plus, depending on your ingredients, they also can fit into a paleo or vegan lifestyle.
When you give these cookies as a “Cookies-In-A-Jar” gift, they require absolutely no baking on your part. Just layer the dry ingredients in a mason jar, securely cover the jar, add a “How To Bake” gift tag and a ribbon and voila! You’re done!
You can give these as a teacher gift, stocking stuffer, or a fun present for anyone who enjoys a healthy and sweet treat.
Chocolate Chip Cookies in a Jar (Paleo/Vegan)
(makes 20 cookies)
- 2½ cups almond meal
- 3 tbsp coconut flour
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ⅔ cup coconut sugar
- ½ tsp sea salt
- 1 cup dark chocolate chips
Layer ingredients in a one-quart mason jar. Seal the jar.
Add a gift tag with the following baking instructions:
- Preheat oven to 350ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Place the jar contents into a large mixing bowl, and add:
- 6 tbsp melted butter or coconut oil
- ¼ cup water (or your fave dairy-free milk)
Mix well. Scoop the batter out of the bowl by tablespoon and drop each ball onto the baking sheet. Gently flatten, and then bake for 12-15 minutes until the edges begin to turn golden brown. Let cool on baking sheet.
Recipes like this are proof that it’s totally possible to enjoy an occasional treat while living a healthy lifestyle.
I hope you enjoy this recipe 🙂
