Flourless Chocolate Madeleines (Paleo)

Flourless Chocolate Madeleines (Paleo)

(Originally published 25 January 2016 at Https://CornFreeHippie.com)

I was in the mood for a cookie and experimented with a dough. It turned out to be more of a batter, pretty wet, and I thought: "I'll put it in my Madeleine pan so it has a pretty shape." What came out of the oven was an spongy cake like the real deal and the recipe is so simple.

I of course had my little taste testers share their thoughts and they both agreed that they prefer the SunFun Butter™ version because of the roasted flavor in addition to the cacao. While I enjoy both, I felt the cashew butter offers a more creamy flavor.

         Ingredients

1/2 cup Cashew Butter or Date-Sweetened SunFun Butter
1/4 cup coconut sugar*
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/2 tsp. vanilla powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 egg

         Method

Preheat oven to 375ºF. Grease madeleine pan with coconut oil.

Mix all ingredients except egg in food processor. Adjust sweetness if desired. Add egg & process until incorporated. Place into madeleine pan. Bake 9-11 minutes. Be careful not to burn. Allow to cool. Enjoy!

*If using SunFun Butter™ which creates a drier batter, you can use half coconut sugar & maple syrup.
