I posted this photo on my Instagram yesterday morning, and a few of you asked me to share this amazing recipe with you. I love experimenting with paleo sweets and treats because 1. I have a sweet tooth, and 2. if I can make any baked good a little healthier, I’m all for it!
Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies
These paleo chocolate chip cookies are incredible. I’ve tried many recipes before that just weren’t good, but this one takes the cake hands down. They honestly taste just as good, if not better, than a regular chocolate chip cookie! I’ve made two batches in the last week and they’re already gone. Whoops.
3 cups blanched almond flour (almond meal works but the texture will be different!)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients and mix together.
In a small sized mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla extract with a hand mixer.
Pour wet ingrediens into dry, and then beat together with a hand mixer until well combined.
Melt coconut oil, pour into batter, and continue to blend until combined.
Stir in chocolate chips
On a parchment lined sheet (or a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray), drop balls of cookie dough, about a tablespoon in size.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Transfer to cooling rack and let cool.
These are so addicting, you can’t eat just one. They have a high fat content (almond, coconut oil), but it’s healthy fat and therefore you can indulge a little bit 🙂 Seriously go make these. Like, now!
