These chocolate chip cookies may look ordinary, but they are everything but! They are super cookies (gluten-free, vegan, sugar-free, low-carb, high-protein, and keto) made a raw flour mix consisting of 50% almonds and 50% cauliflowers.
Cauliflowers, yes! Incredible, we know. But if we were to give you one of these cookies without telling what's in it, you would never guess the secret ingredient. It's amazing as you get all the healthy benefits of the marvellous cauliflower, without overly altering the classic taste of cookies.
Excuse the enthusiasm, but we are so very excited about it. Using cauliflower as a flour substitute in bakes has huge nutritional benefits and can help us design even healthier gluten-free, vegan, and keto recipes.
For example, for this gluten-free recipe, we may have used 50% almonds and 50% oats, or coconut flour. But by using shredded cauliflowers instead, we reduced the number of resulting fats and carbs by half! A dream for all the folks on a weight-loss or low-carb diet.
Good news: baking with cauliflower couldn't be simpler. Whether you are using wheat flours or gluten-free flours, you can swap up to 50% with grated cauli florets and be on your merry way.
Overall, a portion of these cookies (2 cookies) gives you 1.9% carbs, 3% sugars, and 11% fibres of your recommended daily intakes (RDI). When you compare weight-by-weight these biscuits with a Starbucks cookie, you'll get eleven times fewer sugars and half the saturated fats. But you'll feel 100% good about yourself! Follow the simple steps below, and you'll be crunching on these yummies in no time.
NOTE: The default ingredients yield 16 cookies and one serving consists of two biscuits.
