What kind of dessert section would this be without chocolate chip cookies? Not a very good one, if we do say so ourselves. This recipe does not adhere to super strict Paleo standards, but it is grain free and does not contain any refined sugar. Because of this, they may not be as sweet as you might be used to, but we think that once you try them, you’ll realize that it’s sweet enough for a satisfying treat on a special occasion just the way a dessert should be.
- 3 cups almond flour.
- 1 teaspoon baking soda.
- 2 large eggs.
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup.
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract.
- ½ cup coconut oil.
- 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Sift together the dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Beat in the eggs, maple syrup, vanilla, and coconut oil with a hand mixer until well combined.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
On a parchment-lined baking sheet, drop tablespoon-sized balls of cookie dough about 2 inches apart. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, cool, and serve.
