I stumbled across this blog while stalking clean eating Instagram accounts (you do it too!). I have been on the hunt for healthy and clean chocolate recipes that I can snack on while I am studying… and plus I love chocolate. I was so happy when I found this recipe on Of Mouth and Mind. She has some amazing stuff on her blog. I recommend you check it out!
Seriously, how good do they look??
Check out the recipe below!
Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies
(dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, paleo, soy-free, vegetarian)
3 cups almond meal/flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, stir together all dry ingredients (almond meal, baking soda, and sea salt).
In a medium bowl, whisk together all wet ingredients (maple syrup through vanilla extract).
Add the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix until everything is thoroughly combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
Chill the dough in the fridge for at least a half hour.
Place small rounds of dough on the baking sheet, spacing them a couple inches apart. I use my hands to scoop the dough, because it’s much sticker than ordinary cookie dough. Don’t worry, that’s normal.
Put the dough back in the fridge while the first batch bakes.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are nice and golden. Let cool on the tray for a minute or two, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Repeat for the next batch(es).
Makes about 24 cookies, give or take. Less if you’re a dough-eater. (Shhh.)
