Coconut Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cuddles and Crumbs Coconut Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies


A few months back I strictly stayed off wheat and my body was happy – no migraine. I’ve slipped off wheat elimination this month as we’ve had a lot of parties to attend too and well I just gave in to temptation. Removing wheat from your diet requires planning specially if you’re family is used to snacking on bread, cake and the sorts.

LittleMan’s school vacation officially starts this week and this means that I have a hungry almost 7 year old boy asking for food almost every 30 minutes. He asked for Chocolate Chip Cookies, I know that I’ll be tempted to grab a cookie or two so instead of baking our staple cookie recipe I made a wheat free version adapted from the BiteSizedBaker.

My boy’s didn’t notice that I didn’t use any flour for this recipe and easily munched a few cookies for snack. I also made some for LittleMiss minus the chocolate chips and we both enjoyed some for tea time.

Hi, my name is Abigail a stay at home Mama of two LittleOnes and currently residing in Dubai, UAE since 2009. This is my little space online where I share activities, places we've been, food we enjoy and snippets of our daily expat life. ‘Cuddles and Crumbs’ is a combination of the two main things I share on this blog: cuddles (family) and crumbs (food).
