Paleo Cookies:

palcookies
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 oz 80% dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • Coarse sea salt, for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine egg, coconut oil, coconut sugar and vanilla extract. Next add in almond flour, coconut flour, and baking soda, mixing well to combine. Fold in dark chocolate chunks. You may need to use your hands to moisten the dough so that it sticks together well.

Use a cookie scoop or large tablespoon to drop dough onto ungreased baking sheet. Gently flatten the dough with your hand. Bake for 11-13 minutes, or until edges are slightly golden brown. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt and allow to cool on cookie sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finishing cooling. Makes 12 cookies.
