Better Beauty Cookies
A #BetterBeauty Cookie: I created this cookie for my favorite clean make-up brand, Beautycounter. I love their products and the integrity they stand for with ingredients. We are aligned on this front, and do events together surrounding clean beauty and clean baking! This cookie uses some of the same ingredients used in Beautycounter products, showing us that beauty should be clean from the inside out. The flavor of these beauties? Chocolate dipped, orange cookies! Bright and decadent; they might just be your new go-to cookie! Happy baking!
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 24 cookies
2 zested oranges
1/4 cup orange juice
2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup arrowroot powder
1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
1/4 -1/3 cup maple sugar
1/4 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
1/2 cup Sweet Laurel Vegan Chocolate Chips
In a bowl, mix together the almond flour, arrowroot powder, maple sugar, orange zest and pink salt. Mix well. Add the melted coconut oil and orange juice and stir until a soft dough is formed. Place the dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll out the dough, then place in the refrigerator to chill for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350.
Remove from refrigerator and take off the top sheet of parchment paper and place it on a baking sheet. Using a small cup, circle cookie cutter, or cookie of choice, gently press into dough, and using a spatula, place the cut out dough on prepared baking sheet.
Bake for about 10 minutes, and while doing so, melt the chocolate. To melt the chocolate chips, place them in a small sauce pan over VERY low heat. If your stoves low heat setting is unpredictable, use the double boiler method instead. Slowly melt the chocolate, stirring frequently. When melted remove from stove and allow to cool.
Remove cookies from oven and allow to cool. When completely cool, dip cookies in melted chocolate and place on a piece of parchment paper to firm up. Enjoy!
