Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies



I just finished the Diamond of the Tough Masters Qualifiers! http://www.diamondofthetough.com/
(40-44 division) Whew! And I was ready for a tasty reward. This fit the bill beautifully! I got this recipe from my dear friend and CrossFit trainer, Michele Mootz. It was past down to her by a friend that had it passed down to her by another friend, and so on (you get the idea)..... Therefore, I do NOT know who is responsible for this amazing Paleo recipe creation to give them the appropriate credit! I am truly sorry for that. I would also like to add that these delicious cookies were made FOR me by my 16 year old daughter who loves to bake Paleo. Am I lucky or what? I hope you enjoy... and if you're even more fortunate, maybe someone will make them for you! :-)

Recipe:
3 C Blanched Almond Flour
1/2 C Coconut Oil, melted
1/2 C Raw (local) Honey
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Vanilla
2 Eggs
1 C Organic 65% Cacao Bittersweet (dairy-free, soy-free) Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine coconut oil, eggs, honey and vanilla. Mix well. Slowly stir in the almond flour, sea salt and baking soda to the mixture. Add the chocolate chips! Mixture will seem a little sticky, that's okay! Drop spoonfuls onto a lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-9 minutes.
Soft, rich and decadent. Hey... we all deserve a treat now and again! One cookie goes a long way!
Enjoy!

* I did find dairy-free, soy-free organic chocolate chips locally at: "Staff of Life". The brand name is: SunSpire, Fair Trade Organic 65% Cacao!

How was the texture on these cookies? Were they cakey or a little crispy.

Katerina, they were soft and chewy. Not really crispy. Thanks!

Great recipe, I just whipped some up. I added a couple of scoops or protein powder and so far so good.

Hmm.. What if I replaced chocolate chips with dried fruits? That would be fine too, right?

if you looking for a healthy diet than you should check this product https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWQb4eyGlI0
. This Diet came out at or near the bottom in every category, and tied with the Dukan diet as dead last overall. Ratings above a 2 were rare; the experts were especially critical of its nutritional completeness, cost, and its applicability for weight loss and for preventing or controlling diabetes and heart disease.

Sometimes you can use coffee, nuts or almonds for different taste.
