We actually came up with the name for these while sitting in the waiting room at the walk-in clinic this morning. These little guys are super easy to whip up, and after some feedback on the brownies, I will say this is definitely a beginner-level recipe. And BONUS, you will be happy to know it only dirties three bowls. The best way I can describe these little guys is like a fluffy chocolate chip cookie. It even melts in your mouth. Mmmm!
Coco Chip Puffs
(the taste of chocolate chip scone combined with the ease of a drop biscuit)
(these are grain-free, gluten-free, and can be dairy-free with your choice of chocolate chip)
1 & 3/4 cup almond flour/meal
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon salt (I prefer sea salt)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 Tablespoon ground flax
1/4 cup honey
1 Tablespoon vinegar
2 Tablespoons coconut milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons unrefined coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup chocolate chips (I prefer the mini ones so you get a little chocolate in each & every bite)
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium mixing bowl combine flours, salt, baking soda, and flax. Stir to combine.
In a separate bowl add honey, vinegar, coconut milk, egg, and vanilla. Stir until evenly blended.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir just until all ingredients are mixed together and moistened. Pour in melted coconut oil and stir yet again. Now just stir in the chocolate chips and your almost done.
Drop dough by the spoonful onto the parchment-lined baking sheet into 9 biscuits and slightly flatten using the back of the spoon or fingertips dipped in water (to prevent sticking).
Bake for 12-14 minutes until slightly browned around the edges and it feels "set" (or slightly firm) in the center. Let cool on pan 10-15 minutes before transferring to a plate/storage container. Honestly, we can not resist waiting and eat them right off the cookie sheet fresh from the oven, but they tend to crumble if you do not let them cool slightly first.
Store leftovers in an air-tight container.

I promise, this is the closest thing you can have to a cookie for breakfast, not feel guilty about, and will still leave you satisfied for hours.
