Vanilla Choc Chip Cookies

Posted by Samara Macchia on

Sometimes when we need to get our team together for a meeting I bribe them with healthy snacks (it helps punctuality!).  

With a high ratio of young adult males in the mix, for our last gathering I made these chocolate chip cookies in extra large size. They go perfectly with a warm brew or a Holy Mother botanical tea.


Makes: 10 large cookies

We use all organic or biodynamic ingredients.


  • 1 ½ cups cassava flour
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • pinch of high quality salt
  • 2/3 cup raw chocolate, roughly chopped & extra to top
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 2 eggs or for vegan option, 1 tbsp flaxseed meal mixed with 2 tbsp water
  • ½ cup melted grass fed butter or coconut oil1 tbsp cold pressed macadamia nut or olive oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or honey


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C
  2. Mix dry ingredients together in large bowl.
  3. Lightly beat eggs or mix flaxseed meal & water together and allow to sit for 2-3 minutes
  4. Whisk together oil, maple syrup or honey, vanilla and eggs/flax mix.  Blend into dry ingredients with a wooden spoon, until combined.
  5. Spoon large tablespoons of mix onto lined baking tray and  top with extra chunks of chocolate.
  6. Bake for 12-15 mins until golden brown.
  7. Cool on tray, then turn onto rack to finish.


Serve while still a little warm with a cup of Holy Mother botanical tea or a brew.
