You can’t go wrong with a chocolate chip cookie, especially when it’s a healthy version! These cookies are high in protein and healthy fats and they’ll satisfy your sweet tooth without all the refined sugar. A couple of these make an excellent snack or dessert.
Makes: 10 cookies
1/3 cup coconut flour
2T almond butter (or other nut butter of choice)
2 whole eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup raw honey
1.5 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of sea salt
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
ONE: Preheat your oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
TWO: Whisk together coconut flour, nut butter, eggs, coconut oil, honey, vanilla extract, and salt. Keep whisking until mixture becomes thick. Then, stir in chocolate chips and shredded coconut
THREE: Using a spoon, portion out the cookie dough onto your baking tray.
FOUR: Bake for about 12 minutes (you want the outside of your cookie to turn golden brown)
FIVE: Let cool and then enjoy!
