Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mothers out there. I've been doing so well staying Paleo and today I was craving a little sweetness on Mother's Day. These cookies turned out so delicious that I had to share them with you. You can easily double this but since I really don't want them hanging around for long, I made this version.
Paleo Almond Joy Cookies
1 1/4 cup almond flour (I use Trader Joe's)
1/4 tsp salt (I use sea salt)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup pure maple syrup (room temperature), honey or agave (I use syrup)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix wet ingredients in a small bowl. Mix wet into dry until combined. I use a spoon for all my mixing. Fold in chocolate chips. Take a taste, it's yummy raw! Drop by the spoonful onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Flatten slightly. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Enjoy!
