Chocolate Chip Cookies - GF, Paleo

Chocolate Chip Cookies, almond flour, gluten free, paleo, delicious, melt in your mouth cookies

Chocolate chip cookies have always been my favourite!  My Mom's cookbook opened automatically to the page the recipe was on.  Because we now eat gluten-free and often grain-free, I use a new recipe.  Saturday night I posted to facebook that that I was craving cookies.  I whipped them up and have been enjoying them for a couple of days.  These little gems come with less guilt.  They are high in fibre, protein and just plain delicious!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 2 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F.  Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In the bowl of your mixer, blend the butter and coconut oil together, add the honey and vanilla.  Continue to beat until smooth.  Add the the dry ingredients, including chocolate chips and mix until well combined.  With a little elbow this can be done by hand if you don't have a mixer or don't want to have to wash it.  Either way, they are still delicious!

Using a small scoop (about 1 Tbsp), place dough on the parchment-lined cookie sheet, flatten slightly with a fork, leaving about an inch between cookies.

Bake about 10 minutes, until golden.  Watch during the last couple of minutes as they go from golden to brown, quickly.  Enjoy!
