Dark Chocolate Chaga Cookies (Keto & Paleo Friendly)

Dark Chocolate Chaga Cookies (Keto & Paleo Friendly)

I have a new favorite… I don’t know if it will stand the test of time against my Dark Chocolate Espresso Mint Cookies but the trend of this basic recipe made from collagen and cacao has been a chewy chocolate hero.  These are not super sweet… so if you are used to sugar cookie crack you may not be into them… but for the AIP, Keto and health conscious they are divine. I love the earthy taste of the Chaga mushroom coming through.  I have been wanting to incorporate medicinal mushrooms more in my baking for their cell renewing, immune boosting and cancer fighting benefits and I was pleasantly surprised with this!  Keto and paleo cookies took some getting used to in the process of making and the doughs are finicky.  I use a medium Jenaluca Scoop as I have found paleo and keto cookies to be a little difficult to work with by hand.  They will also need to be pressed down with the palms of your hands.  I like to coat mine with a bit of coconut oil first to keep from sticking.  The dough is wetter than you would expect but it works to create the moist chewy mouthfeel.  I sometimes use a large Jenaluca Scoop to make larger cookies for ice cream sandwiches… or at the request of my kiddos who want to dig in rather than have a tiny treat. I have taken to using Whole Foods 365 Keto Dark Chocolate Chips for these as they do not contain soy, but have sunflower lecithin.  The lighter lilies chips I believe all use sunflower as well.  So if you want to sub white chocolate chips you can still avoid the soy but will need to bake at a lower temp for longer.  Give them a try and let me know what you think!
