Brazilian Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Exotic name I know.

Did you know you can grind up Brazilian nuts into a flour too? Yeah. Awesome. Simply grind them as you would making your own almond flour. Careful as they are a bit oily so you don't want to grind them too fine or you will have butter (which isn't necessarily a bad thing ;)). They won't be as fine as an almond meal but they worked like a charm for this recipe.

Brazilian Nut Flour

These cookies rock. I'm pretty sure they may be one of the best cookies I've ever made. Or tasted. Yum.

Brazilian Cherry Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups brazilian nut flour
1/2 cup pecan flour
Dash of sea salt
1/4 honey
1 tbls vanilla
1/3 cup chopped dried cherries (I used tart)
1/4 cup chocolate chips (dairy, soy free)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup melted coconut oil


Combine the nut flours, salt, honey and vanilla in a medium size mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly and then add in the chocolate chips, cherries and baking soda. Once everything is well incorporated, pour in the oil and stir well.

The batter will be slightly crumbly, that's OK ;) Form cookies and place on parchment paper.

Bake at 350° on parchment paper for 7-9 minutes or until sides and tops begin to brown.

Yields ~ 8 medium sized cookies. 

I'm pretty excited to have one of these when I get home... 

Enjoy ;)
