Are you craving something sweet but looking for something healthy? These have been my all time favourite.
Nutty Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 3 1/2 cups Almond Meal
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
- 2 Table spoons water
- 6 Table spoons of maple syrup (room temperature)
- 1 Table spoon Vanilla extract
- Recipe calls for 1 cup chocolate chips but I find 3/4 cup is perfect
Preheat oven to 250 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone liner.
In a large bowl, whisk together almond meal, salt, baking soda, then add in the coconut oil, water, maple syrup, and vanilla. Stir well to create a sticky batter and then fold in the chocolate chips.
Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons onto the lined baking sheet and then flatten the cookies using your fingers, fork, or back or spoon. (They will not rise or spread much with baking, so shape them the way you’d like them to turn out).
Bake for 30 minutes, then remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the cookies to cool for 10 minutes before removing them from the pan. Serve warm or let cool completely on a wire rack before storing in a sealed container. I store these in the freezer in attempt prevent myself from eating the entire 2 dozen cookies at once.
