Say what? Another post? All in the same week? This must be a record.
Anyway, I HAD to share this recipe before St. Patty’s day. It’s too perfect not to!
Here we have a grain-free and nut-free paleo cookie. But wait for it… take a bite and the inside is COMPLETELY GREEN. And nope! No color dye or spinach was used to achieve this effect.
So what’s the secret? The combination of sunbutter and baking soda! It creates a chemical reaction that results in a green cookie. Just make sure to wait a few hours for the green to show up. I HIGHLY recommend waiting until the next day for the best results!
If you have little kids, I suggest making these the night before St. Patrick’s day and telling them that the leprechauns used their magic to jazz up the cookies. It works every time 😉
No-Dye Green Cookies (Paleo and Nut-Free)
3/4 cup organic sunbutter (I use the Once Again brand)
2 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
pinch of stevia
Optional: 2 tbsp cane sugar (for a sweeter cookie. I usually omit)
3 tbsp coconut flour
3 tbsp chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking pan with parchment paper.
In a bowl, combine the sunbutter, egg, honey, and vanilla. Mix in baking soda, salt, stevia, and sugar (if using). Add in coconut flour and chocolate chips.
Roll into 12 balls and place on baking sheet. Press down slightly. Bake in the oven for 13 minutes. Allow to cool completely. Eat now OR wait a few hours for the green color to appear. I HIGHLY recommend allowing the cookies to sit overnight. The next day, the cookies will be completely green on the inside!!!
