Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies (Made with Almond Meal and Sweetened with Honey!)

Posted by Wendy Lucas on June 14, 2013 at 3:50 PM

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies!

DAIRY, GLUTEN, AND GRAIN FREE! 


I finally discovered a healthy cookie recipe that tastes good!  Praise to the cookie-Gods! (Thanks to Gina Matsoukas' blog!)

These cookies are made from almond meal! So they are naturally gluten-free!  

What I especially like about these cookies is they are free from refined sugars.  They are sweetened with raw honey

Ingredients:

- 1 cup almond meal
- 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon pink himalayan sea salt 
- 3 tablespoon melted organic coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons raw honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon almond milk 
- 1/4 cup mini dark chocolate chips
(or you could use cacao nibs to reduce sugar/increase super-food content.) Use whatever chocolate you prefer. 
- Optional :
(1/2 tsp. cinnamon, walnuts, pecans, coconut shreds, dried cranberries, other mix-ins)


Instructions: 

1.) Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2.) Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
3.) Whisk together wet ingredients in a small bowl. 
4.) Add wet to dry and mix together.
5.) Fill a tablespoon measure with batter and press down to form a half-circle. Use a spoon to scoop batter out onto baking sheet and lightly press down in the center. 
6.) Bake for 10 minutes or until bottoms just start to turn brown. 
7.) Remove from oven and let cool 5-10 minutes before transferring to a plate. 

***Please note - batter will be oily consistency, this is totally normal! =) 


Enjoy good-for-you-cookies and have great health too,

Wendy :D
