Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Yes!  Chocolate Chip Cookies!  On our journey to health we have discovered chocolate chip cookies.  This recipe by Healy Real Food Vegetarian is simply DELISH and, dare I say, "healthy"!   :)

Grain-free Chocolate Chip Cookies: 12-16 cookies

1 cup almond flour (if you want to make your own she tells you how here, so easy!) 

1/3 cup coconut flour 
3/4 cup coconut sugar (we don't have any coconut sugar and have been using sucanat with good results.  Going to start using less and see how they turn out as well.)
1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)
1/4 tsp salt (we use Pink Himalayan salt)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
2 pastured eggs
3/4 cup chocolate chips  (our choice for chocolate)

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees
Combine all ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in mixer and mix well.
Carefully add and fold in the chocolate chips with a spoon.
Using a small scoop(we use this scoop) place dough on cookie sheet (we use stones)
Bake 10-15 minutes.  (Our cookies tended to be too soft at 10 minutes)
Also delicious, adding a few handful of organic walnuts to the dough - yummy crunch! 
We have been baking gluten free for eight years and have tried dozens of recipes and these cookies are seriously delicious, soft, one of the best recipes we have ever tried, and did I mention yummy!?  To see her original post and plenty of other wonderful grain free recipes pop over to Healy Real Food Vegetarian.
