The Best Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever
Author: Lauren Goslin
1 c. almond meal
scant ¼ t. sea salt
⅛ t. baking soda
¼ t. cinnamon, optional, but delicious!
3 T. coconut oil or butter, melted
2 T. honey or maple syrup
1½ t. vanilla
½-1 t. water, only if/as needed
2-4 T. chopped dark chocolate, depending on your personal preference (I used 3 T.)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the almond meal, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon.
Stir in the coconut oil, honey/maple syrup, and vanilla.
Add in water as needed to bring everything together.
Stir in the chopped chocolate last.
Bake for 10-11 minutes on a well oiled or parchment paper-lined cookie sheet (the edges should be golden).
Let them sit on the pan for 5-10 minutes (they firm up during this time, so this is an important step!).
Remove and enjoy!
