Paleo Flourless Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

                                                    Yield: 1 1/2 dozen

GATHER:

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Lightly beat the egg in a medium bowl.
  3. Thoroughly mix the almond butter, baking soda, and coconut sugar into the beaten egg.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop the dough onto a parchment paper lined cookie/baking sheet.Use a tablespoon to make the dough balls the perfect size. After spacing the balls well apart, the baking sheet should hold twelve.
  6. Using a spoon, slightly flatten the dough balls to a thickness of approximately half an inch. You may reshape the squished dough for a more aesthetically pleasing finished product.
  7. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes and do not over -bake. The cookies will look and feel underdone; however, the baked cookies will become firm once cooled.
  8. Once the cookies have cooled and firmed on the baking sheet for a few minutes, move the cookies to a plate or plater for serving.

NOTES

  • When I made my cookies, I made my own almond butter. Refer to my later posts to learn how to make your own.
  • In my recipe, I used “blonde” coconut sugar; however, I believe coconut sugar in any form would be substantial.
  • To satisfy the Paleo diet, I used Lily’s Dark Chocolate baking chips. Stevia sweetens Lily’s chocolate chips and are 55% cocoa, vegan, and non-GMO.
