Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip CookiesEveryone needs a sweet treat during the holidays. These are the yummy Chocolate Chip cookies that Steven and I whipped up this morning. They are quick and easy and oh so tasty! Plus, they are paleo AND gluten, egg, and dairy free! Can’t beat that! I adapted this recipe from Elana Amsterdam’s, found in her “Gluten-free almond flour cookbook.” We have used it many times over the last few years. I felt that it was high time that I shared it! 😉


You will need:

  • 2 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon aluminum free baking soda
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 2 teaspoons homemade vanilla
  • 1/4 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
Then simply combine all of the dry ingredients into a medium glass bowl. A fork usually works best for me.

In another small bowl, or a glass measuring cup, combine all of the wet ingredients.

Make a small well in the middle of the dry ingredients, and add the wet ingredients to the dry.

Mix with a fork or spoon until it is well combined. Then add your chocolate chips, and mix again until they are thoroughly distributed.

Use a cookie scoop to place 12 balls of dough onto your cookie sheet. Simply use the palm of your hand to pat them flat. About 1/4 of an inch thick will do.

Bake for 5-9 minutes until the bottom edges of the cookies start to golden.


Do you and your family have any favorite cookie recipes that stand out above the rest? One’s that you always seem to default to?
