These cookies to me we’re a real solid reminder that I need to be baking way more regularly than I do now. There’s something so simple and healing about the act of making cookies. They’re hard to mess up, they make the kitchen smell amazing and you get to snack on cookies when it’s all said and done. Plant based cookies have won my heart because the cookie dough is incredibly safe and delicious to eat all on its own!
Otto’s Cassava Flour has become my go-to kitchen staple for baking. Its absorbent, fluffy, gluten-free, grain free, and in my opinion the easiest GF flour alternative to work with. The more I work with it, the more I love it better than your typical wheat flour. I also really love the fact that its becoming easier and easier to find at grocery stores!
This recipe incorporates Otto’s cassava flour and cacao - both earthy and velvety in baking making these some delectable tasty treats. Topped with some raspberry and dark chocolate - these will become your new go to for self-care, your special someone or for when your friends come over!

1/2 cup almond butter
2 chia or flax eggs (1 egg is 1 tsp ground chia/ flax seeds mixed with 2 1/2 tsp water)
3/4 cup coconut sugar
2 tbsp melted coconut oil
1/4 cup almond milk
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup Otto’s Cassava Flour

Scoop out heaping 1-2 inch dough balls separated by a few inches onto the baking sheet.

Immediately after being pulled out of the oven, top with pistachios so they stick to the melted chocolate bars.
