I make these as a substitute for the more expensive Cliff bar energy bars. They are not very sweet, but the taste is still satisfying and they provide long lasting energy as they have a very low glycemic index. My 4-year old loves them.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup oat flour or 1 cup millet flour
  • 12 cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 34 cup almond milk
  • 12 cup sunflower seed butter
  • 18 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 14 cup honey
  • 12 cup chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients well. If mixture is too dry/clumpy add a little extra almond milk. Form into 1 inch balls, and press surface lightly with fork to flatten a little.
  2. Cook at 350 for 14 to 16 minutes.
  3. Cookies will not rise or enlarge much in size, and they will be dense - more like an energy bar consistency.
  4. I've also made this as true bars - just press into a pan, bake about 20 min and cut into rectangles.
  5. The recipe works fine with regular flour, and you may substitute any type of nut butter. We just happen to be a gluten-free household, and I like the flavor of the coconut flour in the cookies.
