Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 3 cups almond meal
- 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup cashews raw chopped
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt for a sweet and salty cookie add a little more
- 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/3 cup honey
- 2 1/2 tablespoons avocado oil
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg
Preheat oven to 350
In a bowl, mix dry ingredients (almond meal, chocolate chips, cashews, salt, baking soda)
In another bowl, whisk egg and add honey, coconut oil, vanilla extract
Mix dry and wet ingredients together
Prepare cookie sheet with parchment paper
Using a cookie scooper add cookie mixture
Use a spoon (greased with a little coconut oil) or small bowl to flatten cookie. The cookie will not expand while baking so it will stay the size you press it down to.
Bake for 10-13 minutes
Allow to cool before removing from parchment paper to prevent sticking and also allowing it to mold together. Tip: it will feel crumbly, but will mold together while cooling
