Much like every woman needs a little black dress, everyone needs a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe. This cookie recipe will satisfy that basic need. It also comes with a twist- it is not only gluten free but paleo, dairy free, and vegan. It is a guilt-free, homemade cookie that is actually healthy for you and tastes exactly like it should- a delicious chewy chocolate chip cookie. Enjoy!
2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup arrow root flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sunflower seed oil (coconut oil would also work just heat it up enough to liquify it before adding it with the other ingredients)
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup paleo friendly chocolate chips (I like to you Enjoy Life)
1/2 cup walnuts (crushed into small pieces)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Mix together your dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl, without chocolate chips and walnuts. In a separate bowl, whisk together the liquid ingredients. Pour wet into the dry, and using a hand blender or a stand mixer incorporate it all together. Add chocolate chips and walnuts at the end.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and scoop dough onto it (about 2 tbsp of dough per cookie). Gently flatten the cookies with your hand to help them spread. Bake for about 12 minutes.
This will make 18 cookies OR 12 cookies and 1 giant heart shaped cookie–my daughter and I like to make that for her daddy–she puts her handprint right in the center for him. It is a little hard to see but it is there and full of love!
