Chocolate Chip Cookies In A Jar

Author: Joscelyn Abreu

 

Ingredients:

  • ⅔ cup (90g) coconut sugar
  • 2 cups (230g) finely ground almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons (17.5g) arrowroot starch
  • ½ teaspoon (3g) bi carb soda
  • ¼ teaspoon (1.5g) of salt
  • 1 cup (5–6 oz) chopped chocolate or chocolate chips (I use dark or semi-sweet chocolate)
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) melted coconut oil or butter
  • ¼ cup (60ml) water

 

Instructions:

To Make Gift in a Jar:
  1. I used this ¾ L / 28.7 oz Weck Jar and everything fit perfectly.
  2. Layer the jar as follows. I found it easier to make a funnel out of a large piece of parchment paper rolled up with a large opening at the top, like a cone.
  3. /3 cup (90g) coconut sugar at the bottom.
  4. Next layer is almond flour blended in a bowl with arrowroot starch, bi carb, and salt.
  5. The top layer is the chopped chocolate/chocolate chips.
  6. Ingredients should fit snug, so they don't shift around.
  7. Include a tag with the following info:
  8. Chocolate Chip Cookies
  9. –contents from jar
  10. –1/4 cup water
  11. –2 tablespoons melted coconut oil or butter
  12. Preheat oven to 180º. Mix together contents from jar, water, and melted oil/butter until blended.
  13. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets. Press mounds of dough to slightly flatten. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely before handling. Makes about 1½ dozen cookies.
For Regular Cookies:
  1. Preheat oven to 190º. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Combine dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl—coconut sugar, almond flour, arrowroot, bi carb, salt, & chocolate. Stir in melted coconut oil and water and stir just until combined. If mixture is too dry, add another tablespoon or two of water, just until mixture holds together. Should be the consistency of thick cookie dough.
  3. Scoop cookies out by the heaping tablespoon (or ¼ cup for large cookies) onto the prepared baking sheet. Press mounds of dough to slightly flatten. Bake 8-10 minutes or just until cookies are golden brown. Remove and let cool fully before handling or they may break apart.
