The new year is just around the corner,
I will write more about it later 🙂
Today I choose to concentrate on the celebrations.
Celebration of life,
Celebration of joy,
Celebration of smiles,
Celebration of family,
Celebration of the sun,
Celebration of self-love,
Celebration of nutritious food,
Celebration of happiness,
Celebration of sweet flavors,
Celebration of chocolate,
Celebration of health.
Today I chose to prepare the sweet treat that’ll make dinner complete for you.
Within ten minutes the cookie will be on your table.
It will suit four diners or two that really like sweets.
It’s the amazing fulfillment of all dreams,
It’s all your wishes in a moment of joy.
It’s vegan and gluten-free.
And I swear it’s just as good as any gluten-filled, buttery cookie.
Go on, enter the kitchen.
Put happy music on,
Be happy with it because it’s a festive evening tonight,
And in just a few minutes this evening will also become sweet and exciting 🙂
May we all have days of health, sweet flavors and happiness ahead 🙂
Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie
Ingredients: for one cookie the size of a disc (yes, like the ones we used to put in a stereo system)
- 3 heaping tablespoons of almond butter (for alternatives, have a look at “A little extra from me”)
- 4 tablespoons maple syrup (for alternatives, have a look at “A little extra from me”)
- 1 tablespoon non-dairy / dairy milk
- A tiny pinch of salt (not a must)
- 2 heaping tablespoons of oat flour (for alternatives, have a look at “A little extra from me”)
- 4 heaping tablespoons almond flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- 40g-50g dark chocolate finely chopped / chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 355°F (180°C) on turbo mode (or upper and lower heat mode) and line a baking pan with parchment paper.
- In a bowl put the liquid ingredients, the almond butter, maple syrup, milk and salt and mix well.
- Add the dry ingredients to the bowl, the oat flour, almond flour and baking powder and mix until a sticky paste is obtained.
- Add some of the chopped chocolate to the bowl and mix well. Transfer the cookie dough to the baking pan and flatten it a little. If your dough is a little sticky, you can put it in the pan with slightly wet hands.
- Sprinkle the chopped chocolate that we kept aside on top of the cookie and put it in the oven to bake for 7-10 minutes. The baking time depends on the power of your oven and the degree of baking you like. I recommend baking for 9-10 minutes.
Take out of the oven, serve with ice cream or strawberries and champagne and celebrate together 🙂
A little extra from me:
- The cookie can be kept in a sealed box for up to 3 days.
- You make the cookie in a baking pan that’s suitable for the oven, a small and slightly deep frying pan, and even an oven pan with parchment paper on it.
- The giant cookie is soft and tender. It’s not hard and stable, so I recommend eating it with a spoon.
- You can make small cookies of regular size from the dough.
- You can replace the oat flour with coconut flour / quinoa flour / more almond flour.

- You can replace the almond butter with tahini or any other nut butter of your choice such as peanut butter, hazelnut butter, cashew butter, etc.
- You can replace the maple syrup with agave / honey / date honey (it’ll slightly color the cookie to a dark color).
- You can replace the dark chocolate with cranberries / pecans / apple cubes and a pinch of cinnamon.
- Enjoy, give yourself away, experience, celebrate, share and most importantly smile 🙂
