Paleo/Primal Friendly Cookies – AND they actually taste GOOD!!!

Time: 15 minutes prep

Bake Time: 15 minutes

Difficulty:   2/5

What you will need:

  • 3 cups Almond Meal
  • 1 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup Chopped Walnuts
  • ¼ tsp Kosher Salt
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/3 cup Raw Honey
  • 2 Tbl Virgin Coconut Oil (melted)
  • ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Egg

How it’s Done:

Preheat oven to 350 F.

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix the dry ingredients together with a fork. Includes: almond meal, salt, and baking soda.
  3. Add the chocolate chips and chopped walnuts to the dry mixture and stir evenly.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the wet ingredients together (honey, oil, vanilla extract, and egg).
  5. You may need to heat the honey and oil in order to liquefy them. Be sure to heat BEFORE you add the egg.
  6. Make a crater in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the whisked wet ingredients.
  7. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until evenly mixed.
  8. I used my hands to make 1tbsp sized, cookie balls, and then gently flattened them (into the shape I wanted) in my palm.  The cookies don’t expand much during baking, the shape you make will stick.
  9. Bake for 15 minutes then let cool for at least 5 minutes.
  10. The cookies will not come off the parchment paper very easily if they’re too warm.
