Chocolate Almond Cookies

For the visiting boys I made two types of cookies.
Chocolate Chunk Cookie


cookieIngredients:

1 1/2 cups of  Almond Flour 
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 egg
1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the almond flour, baking soda and salt and mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the coconut oil, vanilla, maple syrup and egg, and mix well.
  4. Add the wet mixture into the dry mixture, and mix well, then stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Drop the batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden around the edges.
  7. Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. (I found the cookies to be very soft but they did firm up overnight.)
  8. Enjoy!

And Chocolate Chocolate Chunk Cookies

This recipe I found at PaleOMG. Quite a few of the foods in a Paleo diet also fit within my Anti-Inflammatory diet, which is satisfying the crazy sugar cravings I have been having lately and the boys don’t feel deprived of treats.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups almond flour

¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

½ teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon baking powder

pinch of salt

2 eggs

⅓ cup raw honey

¼ cup coconut oil, melted

⅓ cup Mini Chocolate Chips (I used Dark Chocolate Chunks)

Directions:

  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl: almond meal, cocoa powder, cinnamon, baking soda and powder and salt, then mix.
  2. Then in another bowl, mix the wet ingredients: eggs, honey, coconut oil and whisk.
  3. Pour wet ingredients into your dry ingredients and add the chocolate chips. Mix well.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and drop tablespoonful of dough onto your baking sheet.
  5. Bake cookies for 12-15 minutes.
  6. Let cookies cool completely.
  7. Enjoy!

Of the two recipes I liked the chocolate chocolate chunk cookie better, it had a better texture, these also went faster than the plain ones.
