You are in for a treat with these cookies…. not only do they only have 7 ingredients, but they are wheat free, gluten-free, dairy free, and egg free. Technically vegan. But, do not let that scare you away from these puppies. They are ah-mazing. I promise. My mouth thanks my friend Jen for introducing me to these cookies…. my waistline, not so much. I could eat ’em all up by myself.
2 1/2 cups almond flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1 cup chocolate chips (make sure to buy vegan chocolate chips if you want these to be truly vegan)
1. Pre-heat oven to 350.
2. Melt coconut oil, and combine with syrup and vanilla. Set aside, and allow to cool a bit (but not completely or coconut oil will return to solid).
3. In another bowl, mix dry ingredients.
4. Add coconut oil mixture to dry ingredients and stir until the dough sets a little bit. If it seems to wet, allow it to sit for a few minutes, and stir thoroughly.
5. Fold in chocolate chips. I got impatient with this step and added them while my dough was still quite warm from the coconut oil, so my chips melted a lot as I stirred. If you want the chips to remain intact, wait for dough to cool completely before adding chips and baking.
6. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
