I did what I always end up doing while waiting for a four-legged loved one to recover from anesthesia, I made cookies. To keep my mind off the fact that it’s been eight hours and still no word.
I dropped my Maximus Aurelius Rodriguez at the vet at 7 a.m. for a dental and now that it’s 3, I’m getting a little worried about my geriatric friend.
So I hit the sanctuary and baked.
Here’s what to do if you’re a little worried, too.
In a small bowl whisk together:
75 grams (5/8 c.) all-purpose flour
30 grams (1/4 c.) coconut flour
30 grams (1/4 c.) hazelnut flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
a pinch of cinnamon
In a larger bowl cream together:
5 oz. organic grass fed butter, softened
1/4 c. granulated sugar
3/8 c. date sugar (or brown)
1 organic free range egg
1/2 t. vanilla
Now slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
Then stir in:
a whole bunch of callebaut semi-sweet chocolate chips, as many as you like.
Drop them by spoonfuls onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees in a convection oven or at 375 degrees in a conventional oven for 10 – 12 minutes.
Light, tender, nutty and somewhat healthy.
They’ll get you through.
