ya’ll… if you haven’t realized by now, I am alllllll about life-hacks and making things as simple as possible, so you can get the MOST out of your day!
so you know one thing i just flipping love about fall? is it’s finally…
i mean, i know you can use a crockpot/slow cooker year ’round.. but something about fall just makes it a little more acceptable.
is that the word i’m looking for?
you get it, right?!
you just toss a bunch of leftovers in the big bowl, pop a lid on it and leave for work.
when you come home, your place smells like vegetable stew heaven, and you’re ready to eat!
saving yourself an hour of prep time you would usually do sans-crockpot.
so making dinner in it is the norm…
but did you know making dessert in it, is JUST as amazing?!
yep. you read that. i love using my crockpot to make baked goodies!
i mix up the ingredients as i would dinner, then toss it in the crockpot and forget about it for awhile.
then before you know it, your whole home smells like a bakery shop.
i bring you a chocolate chip cookie, so big it’ll be the size of your head.
and you’ll want to pretend it’s 1 serving size.
because well, it’s technically ONE cookie, right?!
this massive cookie will be the perfect treat for your entire family, easy to whip up and even then take to a potluck or family gathering.
surprise people when they go to reach into the crockpot thinking its meatballs and it’s a chocolate bowl of heaven!
so let’s get to baking, shall we?!
Crockpot Chocolate Chip Cookie
say that 10 times fast…
what you need:
1 1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup coconut sugar
3 tbsp melted coconut oil
2 tbsp egg whites
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp semi sweet chocolate chips
1 tbsp cacao nibs
Step 1: combine all dry ingredients (besides chocolate chips and cacao nibs) in a large mixing bowl and mix thoroughly.
Step 2: melt coconut oil, then add in your egg whites to the dry mixture, followed by your melted coconut oil.
Step 3: grab a spoon or spatula and stir away! slowly adding in your chocolate chips.
you know the #1 step… is to not lick the entire spoon until all the batter is in the crockpot….
try it, i dare you.
Step 4: once combined and cookie dough texture is created, line your crockpot with parchment paper, plop in that cookie dough and with a spatula spread evenly along the bottom.
Step 5: Cover crockpot with lid, and let sit on LOW for 2 hours.
Step 6: Once you’re able to stick a fork in the center and it pulls out clean, it’s time to dig in!
i mean… pull out and cut into whatever shape your heart desires!
look at that texture though!!
i put mine in a glass tupperware, and keep in the fridge to then sprinkle over my nightly ice cream!
that’s after i ate 3 of them when they were nice and warm and gooey…
because who can resist a hot cookie?! get outta town!
Makes 12 cookies
