Everyone loves a good chocolate chip cookie. Some people more than others… *ahem, Zeb*. While I have my favorite recipe I’m always on the lookout for something better and this one looks absolutely delicious. I’m excited to try a recipe that combines both almond and coconut flour and uses coconut sugar instead of maple syrup.

Reward yourself for all of the cheering you did this weekend with these heavenly looking cookies, you deserve it. And don’t forget to make an extra batch for the PCF Team who competed this weekend. They are the real superheroes, after all. 😉

Another Chocolate Chip Cookie:

Makes 12-16 cookies

1 cup almond flour (I suggest Honeyville brand)
1/3 cup coconut flour (Bob’s Redmill works just fine)
3/4 cup coconut sugar (available at Whole Foods)
1/2 cup coconut oil (I suggest Dr. Broner’s – available at Whole Foods)
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
2 pastured eggs
3/4 cup chocolate chips (I like this brand, available at Whole Foods)

1. Pre-heat the oven to 350°.

2. In a food processor or mixer combine all ingredients except the chocolate chips and mix well. Make sure you soften or melt the coconut oil so it’s easier to combine.

3. Gently fold in the chocolate chips manually with a spoon (do not mix it with the food processor or it will chop up all the chocolate chips).

4. Take small bits of the dough and shape into a round cookie and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

5. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until slightly browned on top. If you feel the cookies right out of the oven they may feel a bit soft, but allow them to cool and they will harden.
