I crave cookies more than most other foods (the only thing that tops cookies, is cheese!) so I was excited and prepared to be upset by this recipe. Most paleo desserts are OK, but still leave you missing the original. These chocolate chip cookies are probably the best I’ve ever had!!! And my mum agrees (if you know her, you know that’s a big deal).
1 Cup Almond Flour
¼ Cup Coconut Flour
1 Tsp Baking Soda
¼ Tsp Salt
6 Tbsp Coconut Oil (at room temperature, refrigerate if it is liquid)
¾ Cup Brown Sugar (Coconut Sugar can be used as well)
6 Tbsp Almond Butter
1 ½ Tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Large Egg
1 ¼ Cup Paleo Chocolate Chips (you can use semi-sweet)
Preheat oven to 350°F
In a large bowl, mix together (using handheld mixer or standing mixer) the Coconut Oil and Brown sugar until combined.
Add Almond Butter, Vanilla, and Egg and mix well.
Add in dry ingredients and mix until all ingredients are combined. If Coconut Sugar was used, place bowl in fridge for an hour or until cookie dough is firm (this is not necessary when Brown Sugar is used).
Place Parchment Paper or Silpat mat on cookie sheet so the cookies don’t stick to the bottom.
I make 8-12 large cookies (so I wouldn’t be tempted to grab a few, one is good enough) with this recipe and cooked them for 15 minutes in the oven. I left them to cool completely on the cookie sheet to continue cooking throughout. If you have an older oven, you may need to keep them in the oven a few minutes longer. If you make smaller cookies or use coconut sugar, you’ll need to adjust the time they are in the oven (set a timer for 12 minutes and keep an eye on them).
Let me know how they turned out in the comments! Happy Baking!!
