If you're a Paleo diet devotee, then you will love this recipe for chocolate chip cookies! They're soft and chewy just like a regular chocolate chip cookie, but gluten- and grain-free. I promise you won't even notice a difference. They're that delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups almond meal/flour
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp creamy almond butter or sunflower butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 cup Paleo chocolate chips, such as Enjoy Life chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well until batter is blended evenly. Chill batter in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

  4. Bake cookies for approximately 10-12 minutes until cookies are lightly browned.
  5. Remove cookies from baking sheet and allow to cool on wire rack.
