We are getting ready for Sunday Night Football here since our Packers play the Seahawks. The family wanted cookies so I made these Gluten Free Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies and they are pretty damn tasty!
We aren’t gluten free here but I was looking for something a little healthier than the usually butter and bleached flour variety.
Gluten Free Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 3 cups Almond Flour/Meal
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
- 1/4 cup Coconut Oil, melted
- 1/4 cup Maple Syrup
- 1 whole Egg
- 2 Egg Whites
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1/4 tsp Almond Extract (optional)
- 1 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 375°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine almond meal, baking soda and sea salt and set aside. Mix coconut oil and maple syrup in a mixer or by hand until creamy but not fully incorporated, about 5 minutes. Add whole egg, egg whites and extracts (if using) and mix for 2 additional minutes. Slowly add dry ingredients to egg mixture and mix briefly. Add chocolate chips and mix until well combined. Place large rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets, about 1-inch apart. Flatten slightly, to approximately 1-inch thickness. Bake until set and golden, about 15 minutes. Makes 25 servings.
