Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

I know, I know.  It’s January 1st and you are ready to kick to junk and sugar and start fresh for the new year.   I get it.  I did my fair share of overindulging the past couple of weeks too.  BUT, I HAVE to share these with you!  They are so yummy. My kids and I whipped up a batch last night to enjoy for our New Years Eve celebration. Just file them away for later when you need to whip up a quick dessert.  I also like that these don’t make a huge batch so you don’t have dozens of cookies hanging around for days (or a night, I know, I do it too!) to tempt you.  You can easily double the recipe to make a larger batch.  Also, I’ve talked to a couple people who (GASP!) don’t like coconut!!  I know, I’m in disbelief too.  If this applies to you, just leave out the shredded coconut and these will make delish grain free, refined sugar free (besides the chocolate chips) chocolate chip cookies.

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups almond flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/3 cup shredded coconut

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 – 1/3 cup of Enjoy Life Chocolate chips

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375.  Mix your almond flour, baking soda, coconut and salt together in a small bowl.  In a larger bowl add your wet ingredients and mix well.  Add your flour mixture to the wet ingredients.  Once incorporated, add your chocolate chips.  Use a spoon or pastry scooper and place a tablespoon sized ball onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.  These will keep their shape as they bake so gently use the back of a spatula or clean hands to press down on each cookie to flatten it slightly.  Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes, until slightly browned.  Enjoy with a glass of almond or coconut milk!
