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.
