Notes

Instructions

TO ASSEMBLE THE JARS:
Assemble your jar in the order listed (to keep the colors in nice layers):

  • Bottom layer: coconut flour
  • Next: 1 tsp baking powder + 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • Next: 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • Next: 1/4 cup pea protein powder + 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • Last: 1/2 cup M&Ms (or sub dairy-free chocolate chips to keep it dairy-free and paleo)

TO BAKE THE COOKIES:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Empty out the jar into a large mixing bowl. Add in the coconut oil, eggs, and cashewmilk. Stir until thoroughly combined. 
  3. Roll out dough between two pieces of parchment paper. It's too sticky to roll without the paper. 
  4. I used heart valentine cookie cutters, but you can use whatever cut outs you want... or even roll small balls with your hands.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, or until lightly browned and not super mushy. 
  6. Allow to cool / harden before you devour them. 
  7. OPTIONAL (I added one last step --- and partially dipped them in melted chocolate chips and pink sugar. They're good plain or embellished, so it's up to you!)
