Secret Recipe Club.

Happy Monday y’all!
It’s time for another Secret Recipe Club Reveal and let me tell you, I have not been able to contain my excitement with this one. My secret recipe for this month comes from Taryn, the voice behind the sweetly delightful blog, Sweetly Serendipity. It didn’t take me 10 seconds to fall absolutely in love with Taryn’s blog. Home girl seriously knows what she is doing in the kitchen. As I was reading Taryn’s bio I noticed that we share the same motto when it comes to food: we both have a passion for sharing our food with others and in our kitchens, food=love. I cannot stress how important this is to me…baking and cooking is what I do best, and most importantly, it’s how I show my love for others. I am so glad that I found a fellow blogger who shares the same passion and values! I am sure you all do too! 
Taryn is also from Massachusetts, where I once lived when I was little, and wouldn’t you know? Taryn has aspirations to open up a bakery in the future…just like me! Well, there is NO DOUBT in my mind that she has the talent to do it! I mean, seriously, just check out some of her amazing recipes. You can imagine how stumped I was trying to decide which recipe to choose…I mean, obviously I need to hit up those Bacon Cheddar Scallion Scones and OMG these Candy Bar Brownies! However, one recipe was calling my name: Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies . So, boom. Done! 
Now, you know I am the queen of modification and because there was a giant jar of unopened Nutella in my pantry….these babies were getting stuffed. In order for the cookies to hold up well, I added coconut flour for more of a cookie dough like texture. 
Let me tell you…sinful!

The cookie dough is sooooo buttery, with a nutty flavor from the almond flour…and the chocolate chips…
they kick it up a notch.
 Then I had to go and do this…
which may have been my best idea


A tall glass of almond milk is definitely encouraged with these chewy, cake-like cookies!

I got extra creative with the last batch and 

added unsweetened, coconut flakes 

because it is physically impossible for me to go a day without coconut in my life.

Really, the choice is yours…take these cookies over the top…add your fave mix-ins. 

Oh, and definitely do the Nutella dance…
you will thank me later for that one.

Big thanks to Taryn! 
These cookies are ah-maze!
Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies stuffed with Nutella (GF) (original recipe by Sweetly Serendipity):

2 1/2 c. almond flour
1/2 c. coconut flour
1/2 t. sea salt
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 c. coconut oil, melted
1/2 c. agave nectar
1 T. pure vanilla extract
1 c. dark chocolate chips ( I used Ghirardelli 60% cocoa)
Nutella, for stuffing

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
3. In a large bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, sea salt, and baking soda.
4. In a small bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil, agave, and vanilla.
5. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients into the well.
6. Mix to combine.
7. Fold in the chocolate chips.
8. Portion out a tablespoon full of cookie dough, place the dough on the baking sheet and slightly flatten the dough using the palm of your hand.
9. Put 1/2 teaspoon of Nutella in the center of the flattened cookie dough.
10. Cover with another tablespoon of cookie dough, pinching and sealing the sides of the cookie dough to form a round cookie with smooth edges.
11. Repeat with the rest of the cookie dough.
12. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until slightly golden brown on top. Let cool on baking sheet for about 3-5 minutes, then serve.

Makes about 25-30 cookies, depending on the cookie size.
