GLUTEN FREE PALEO CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE RECIPE

February 9, 2015
PALEO CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE RECIPE

Over the course of my heightening food sensitivities and becoming a mom of two (and conscientious about the food I give them), I have become increasingly obsessed with all things Elana’s Pantry.  She comes up with nutrient dense, allergy-free alternatives to heavenly baked goodness that create happiness in our household.  One of my go-to recipes is her gluten free, grain free chocolate chip cookie recipe.  I don’t feel so bad when my 3 year old knocks these down her throat cookie monster style!  She washes them with a glass of almond milk or a cold smoothie making this snack pure healthy, nutrient dense yumminess!  Bake them for your loved ones!



INGREDIENTS
  • 2 ½ cups blanched almond flour
  • ¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 10 tablespoons grassfed butter, melted (I sometimes use grapeseed oil if I’m out of my Kerrygold grassfed butter)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup organic honey
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chunks (I use either Dagoba or Enjoy Life.)
DIRECTIONS
  1. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl
  2. Stir together wet ingredients in a smaller bowl
  3. Mix wet ingredients into dry
  4. Form 1-inch balls and press onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet
  5. Bake at 350° for 7-10 minutes
  6. Cool and serve.

TIP:  Don’t cool these too much.  They’re extra delicious right out of the oven with the chocolate chips melting all over your fingers!

NOTE:  You can make this recipe vegan if you choose by substituting grape seed oil instead of butter and maple syrup (or agave) instead of honey.
