Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

This gluten-free spin on the classic chocolate chip cookie is one of my absolute favorites. Hints of coconut from the coconut flour and coconut oil paired with the rich dark chocolate chips is nothing short of heavenly! This recipe is also dairy-free depending on the type of chocolate chip you select. Try them out yourselves, and let me know what you think!

What you'll need:

1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp. coconut oil or ghee
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/4 cup raw honey 
2 whole eggs, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
 (I love Enjoy Life Foods choc chips!)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt. In a separate mixing bowl or in your stand mixer, beat together the coconut oil, sugar or honey, and stevia. Next, beat in your eggs and vanilla. Beat until smooth and light. Gradually add your dry ingredients to your wet stirring until thoroughly moistened. Fold in your chocolate chips. Allow dough to sit while you line two cookie sheets with foil and grease them. This will allow time for the coconut flour to absorb some moisture. 
Using a tablespoon, dollop cookie dough onto your lined cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. You should be able to fit a dozen per sheet. Gently flatten the cookie dough spoonfuls out just slightly. They don't spread during baking quite the same way. Place cookies in the oven, and bake for 8-10 mins or until golden brown. Take cookies out of the oven, and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
