Grain Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

 I'm always looking for new healthier options for dessert and I must say these cookies have been a HIT! I steer clear of traditional flour since it really has no benefit so I'm constantly trying out new grain free recipes. This one is from Healy Real Food Vegetarian and she has some other great recipes so check her out.

Grain-free Chocolate Chip Cookies:

Makes 16 cookies
1 cup almond flour
1/3 cup coconut flour (where to buy coconut flour)
3/4 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil (where to buy coconut oil)
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
2 pastured eggs
3/4 cup chocolate chips (I like this brand)

 1. Pre-heat the oven to 350°.
2. In a food processor or mixer combine all ingredients except the chocolate chips and mix well. Make sure you soften or melt the coconut oil so it’s easier to combine.
3. Gently fold in the chocolate chips manually with a spoon (do not mix it with the food processor or it will chop up all the chocolate chips).
4. Take small bits of the dough and shape into a round cookie and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or silpat.
5. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until slightly browned on top. If you feel the cookies right out of the oven they may feel a bit soft, but allow them to cool and they will harden.
