Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 16

3/4 cup almond flour 
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut (or sub more almond flour, oats, or gluten-free flour)
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup chocolate chips 
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup aquafaba (or sub 1 egg white)
2 tbsp almond butter
3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1. In a large mixing bowl, stir together almond flour, oats, coconut, coconut sugar, chocolate chips, baking powder, and salt.
2. In a separate bowl, beat aquafaba (or egg white) (using a handheld mixer or by whisking vigorously) until light and fluffy and loose peaks have formed. (Add a little cream of tartar to help them along if not whipping.)
3. To the aquafaba, add the almond butter, oil, and vanilla, and beat or whisk to combine.
4. Add aquafaba mixture to dry ingredients and mix until combined. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
5. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
6. Scoop chilled dough by tablespoon and place on prepared baking sheet.
7. Bake for 10 minutes, rotate, and bake for 1 to 2 more minutes, or until the edges are slightly golden brown. Be careful not to burn - they bake quickly toward the end.
8. Remove from oven and let cool. Store leftovers in a loosely sealed container at room temperature up to 3 days, in the refrigerator for 4 days, or in the freezer for 1 month.
