A Healthy Gluten Free Version of Chocolate Chip Cookies

A client shared this with me and so I’m going to share it with you. This is a gluten free, mostly healthy version of chocolate chip cookies. I made them and they are pretty good, not grandma’s recipe, but knowing that I’m not consuming a bunch of unhealthy ingredients seems to make them pretty darn good

Ingredients

1/4 cup coconut oil, softened
3 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1/2 cup dark chocolate chips


Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond meal, salt, and baking soda, then add the coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract and mix well.
3. Fold in the chocolate chips, then drop batter by rounded tablespoons onto a baking sheet
4. Bake at 350F for 25 minutes, until the edges are golden brown.
5. Allow to cool on the pan for 10 minutes, then serve warm or allow to cool to room temperature


My tips? Use organic organic organic to optimize the healthiness of them.

My nephew said they were really good and considering he’s kinda a kid, I take that as a good sign.
