Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe by Clark, The Trainer

Ingredients:

3 ¼ cup almond meal
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract
½ cup honey (maple syrup or agave nectar works too)
½ cup coconut oil, melted
1 ½ cups cacao nibs (pure chocolate chips and vegan chocolate chips work too)

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Grab a cookie sheet and some parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  2. Combine 3 and 1/4 cups of almond flour (Trader Joe’s almond meal is by far the best, and it’s cheaper than Red Mill or others) with a teaspoon of salt and a teaspoon of baking soda.
  3. In a large bowl, combine 2 eggs, a teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/2 cup of coconut oil and 1/2 cup of either honey, pure maple syrup, or agave nectar.
  4. Combine wet and dry ingredients then add 1 and 1/2 cups chocolate chips. The darker the chips the more paleo friendly they are, but the dairy free ones from Trader Joe’s taste pretty good. (The dough will look pretty wet, I placed my dough in the fridge to firm up a bit before rolling them into balls, but you can just pop them into the oven as is.)
  5. Spoon them onto your parchment and pop them in the oven. This recipe makes about 24 cookies. Bake them for about 8-10 minutes (the tops will start to get golden brown). If they go longer than that the bottoms burn because of the sugar in the honey.
  6. Remove from oven. Cool on parchment and enjoy.
