Baking Recipes with Avocado Oil

Honey-Nut Cookies:

1 chia egg (1 tbsp ground chia seeds + 3 tbsp water)
2 cups cashews
1 cup coconut flour
2 tbsp potato starch, (arrowroot, cornstarch, or tapioca flour will work here)
½ tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
½ cup Chosen Foods 100% Pure Avocado Oil
2 tsp almond extract
½ cup honey
Chosen Foods 100% Pure Avocado Oil Spray for greasing

Almond Icing:

2 ½ cups organic vegan powdered sugar
2 tsp coconut flour
2 tbsp almond milk, or other nut milk
2 tsp almond extract
Sprinkles, for decorating

Instructions for Honey-Nut Cookies Recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F.

  2. Make the dough: Mix 1 tablespoon of ground chia seeds (best ground in a spice or coffee grinder) with 3 tablespoons water in a small bowl and let stand until thick. Place the cashews in a food processor fitted with a steel blade and pulse until finely ground. Add the coconut flour, potato starch, baking soda, and salt and pulse to fully combine. Add the avocado oil, almond extract, chia egg, and honey and pulse until the dough forms.

  3. Make the cookies: Roll out the dough between two sheets of parchment paper to about an 1/8-inch thick. Using cookie cutters cut out the cookies. The scraps of dough can be re-rolled an infinite amount of times until all cookies are cut. Gently slide a metal spatula underneath each cut-out and transfer to a baking sheet greased with Chosen Foods 100% Pure Avocado Oil Spray. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes until firm and lightly crispy on the edges. Let cool before icing.

  4. Decorate: Keep the cookies on the baking sheet and set aside. In a medium bowl whisk to combine the confectioners sugar, coconut flour, almond milk, and almond extract. If the icing is too thin, mix in a ¼ tsp of coconut flour at a time to adjust for a piping consistency. Transfer mixture to a piping bag or zipper-lock bag and close to seal. If using a zip-lock bag, snip the tip of the bag to size needed. Drizzle or pipe the icing over the cookies, creating your own patterns. Decorate with sprinkles or other toppings while the icing is still wet. Let the cookies set before removing from the pan. (Unless, of course, you need to eat a cat cookie right away.)

These cookies keep well covered in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
