Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are very close to tasting like the delicious, melt-in-your-mouth, chocolate chip cookies prior to going grain-free.  This is a splurge for me, though, since it has a little more sweetener than I would like.  But, for a treat or a birthday party or gathering, they are great.  They are best eaten within a couple of hours of baking, so plan wisely.

Ingredients

1 cup butter, nearly melted (you can use coconut oil instead)
3/4 cup honey, agave or coconut palm sugar (I used a combination)
2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 tsps. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips or chopped chocolate (72% cocoa or higher)

 How Do I Make These?

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.  Prepare 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the butter and honey (or agave or coconut palm sugar) on high until creamy and the butter has turned a lighter shade of yellow.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda and salt.
  4. Add 1/2 of the dry ingredients into the butter and beat until combined.  Add the remaining dry ingredients and beat until fully incorporated and batter is smooth.
  5. Using a rubber spatula, fold the chocolate into the batter until completely dispersed.
  6. Using a small ice cream scoop or a large spoon, scoop about 2 Tbsps. of batter onto the cookie sheets spacing about 1 inch apart.
  7. Bake at 350° F for 15 minutes, rotating halfway through.  Check on them during the final 2-3 minutes of cooking to make sure they are properly browned.  If they aren’t browned enough, add 2-3 minutes.
  8. Let cool slightly and remove to cooling rack
  9. Enjoy!
