Einkorn Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

A few months ago, Young Living released Einkorn Pancake Mix at convention.  I was so excited about this because most of the baked goods I make these days are Paleo.  And while they are good, they just are not the same as traditional flour baked goods.

This mix is great for pancakes and waffles but I was hoping to make more.  As I read the list of ingredients in the mix- I realized that it is just a blend of flours, not a traditional baking mix with sweetener and baking powder already in.  So, this opened up a whole world of possibilities.  The other great thing about the einkorn mix is that it has an extremely low gluten percent.  So, most people who have difficulty with gluten are doing fine with this.

There’s a ton of cool stuff about why Einkorn is great.  It’s a wheat that has not been altered or created into a hybrid.  There is a book about it but I need to read it so I can give a full report.

Now for the recipe!  I love chocolate chip cookies  and I want to eat them constantly- but if you are going to do that it’s probably better to not fill them with processed flour and sugar and other junk.  So, this recipe is altered a bit from my favorite cookbook Against All Grain.

Ingredients:
  • ¼ cup palm shortening, ghee, or grass-fed butter
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1½ cups Young Living Einkorn Wheat Pancake Mix
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (buy the best chocolate chips you can- it’s totally worth it.  For the love, don’t get milk chocolate)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix wet ingredients then mix in dry.  You can use your stand mixer or hand mixer
  3. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
  4. Scoop into small balls and place on cookie sheet- might want to flatten a bit because they don’t spread much. 
  5. Bake for 9-12 minutes, until slightly golden around the edges.

These were delicious! 

However, if you want to eat chocolate chip cookies constantly it’s hard to make this large recipe all the time.  So, I did a little digging and found a single serve chocolate chip cookie and gave it a try.  It was super amazing.  I altered the recipe to take out the sugar.  Please consider getting rid of your white sugar.

  Ingredients

2 T. Butter

3T. Coconut Sugar

Pinch Salt

1 T whisked egg- Just take an egg- mix it up with a fork and measure out a tablespoon.  Save the rest so you can make this cookie again the next night or for scrambled eggs in the morning.

1/4t. vanilla

1/3 cup Young Living Einkorn Wheat flour

1/8t. baking soda

1/4cup chocolate chips (see note above)

Mix it up and bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes.  If you make one giant cookie like I did- just check it after 12 and make sure it’s done. 

 

I didn’t get a picture after the cookie baked because I wanted to eat it.  So I did.
