These Snowball Cookies are a fun, festive spin on traditional chocolate cookies! They’re a definite crowd pleaser, and unlike your average cookie, they’re full of healthy thermogenic fats from coconut oil, energy boosting carbs from rolled oats, and antioxidants from raw cacao powder! They’re also vegan, and gluten-free if you use GF oats, and can be Paleo if you substitute the sweetener for coconut sugar. Best of all, none of your Christmas guests will know that they’re secretly healthy as they taste SO chocolatey and indulgent!
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 8 mins
Serves: 10 cookies
Recipe Benefits: Vegan, Gluten-free, Paleo
1/4 cup cocoa or Raw Cacao Powder (20g)
2/3 cup Rolled Oats (55g)
1/2 cup Oat Flour* (60g)
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 cup Granulated Sugar of Choice (I use Sugar-Free Natvia Icing Mix)(30g)
1/4 cup Coconut Oil, melted (38g)
2 tbsp Almond Milk (35g)
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup chocolate chips (40g)
Preheat oven to 160 C / 325 F.
In a bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
In another bowl, combine all wet ingredients. Pour wet into dry, and stir together.
Form one big ball with the dough, then halve again and again into ball shapes until there are about 10 cookies. Put extra choc chips on top for decoration. Enjoy raw or place cookie dough balls on greased baking paper or ideally a silpat mat and bake these cookies for 8 minutes. It will look undone, but let cool for 10 minutes where it will firm up. Dust sugar-free icing sugar on top for the snowball effect! 🙂
*Oat Flour is simply Rolled Oats ground up into a flour consistency using a food processor! Measure 60g of Oat Flour.
