Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Standard

There’s nothing more comforting and satisfying than a deliciously chewy chocolate chip cookie straight from the oven–except one that doesn’t make you feel guilty straight after eating it! You can enjoy these paleo chocolate chip cookies every once in a while without getting that glucose-crash or feeling completely gluttonous. And they are ridiculously delicious!

Paleo Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies (Adapted from Running to the Kitchen) (Difficulty-Easy; Makes a dozen cookies)

  •  1 1/2 c. almond meal
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 3 Tbsp. melted organic extra virgin coconut oil 
  • 2 Tbsp. raw honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon organic coconut milk
  • 1/3 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 c. shredded unsweetened coconut (optional)

Preheat oven to 350° F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat. Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Whisk together wet ingredients in a small bowl. Add wet to dry and mix together. Fold in the chocolate chips and coconut if using. Scoop a tablespoon of dough into your hands and shape into a ball. Bake for 10-11 minutes until bottoms just start to brown. Remove from oven and let cool 2-3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. They will be soft when removed from oven but firm up in a couple of minutes.
