I’m always looking for ways to get my family to eat healthier on a very tight budget. One of our staples around the house is some sort of healthy baked good. We go through seasons of muffins that give way to seasons of cookies around here. We have been in a cookie season of late and I’ve wanted to change things up. At the end of the year last year, as a way to cut costs, I started using organic white flour for our baked goods. It’s better than non-organic white flour but not as good as coconut flour.

I had a difficult time finding a recipe that worked for us. So, I came up with my own. We use organic ingredients, including raw honey and raw milk to ensure that it’s a good-for-you treat 🙂

Here are the very simple ingredients:

1/2 cup coconut flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 tsp baking soda
pinch sea salt

1/2 cup extra virgin coconut oil
1/2 organic peanut butter
2/3 cup raw honey
2 eggs
1/4 cup raw milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract

dark chocolate chips, as desired

Directions:

1. Preheat the over at 350.

2. Heat a small pan on low and add the coconut oil, peanut butter, and honey (be sure to put the honey in last so that it doesn’t burn). Remove from heat as soon as most of it is melted. Mix together and let cool.

4. Add the eggs, milk, and vanilla extract to the cooled off peanut butter mixture in the pan. Then, mix in to the dry ingredients.

5. Let that sit for at least 5 minutes before adding the yummy chocolate goodness…I mean, the chocolate chips 😉

6. Use a tablespoon to drop balls of cookies onto a parchment lined cookie sheet about one inch apart. (Sometimes I place them closer than an inch apart because I don’t want to use a second cookie sheet, as you can see here.)
