Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Paleo cookies

While I was enjoying the raw desserts, I think that few things beat cookies right out of the oven, so I tried this recipe from “Oatmeal with a Fork”: http://www.oatmealwithafork.com/2013/03/29/the-best-paleo-chocolate-chip-cookies-ever/

Ingredients

1 cup almond meal (I was happy to see that Trader Joe’s sells bags of this)

⅛ teaspoon baking soda (I didn’t precisely measure mine since I only recently bought a full set of measuring spoons)

3 tablespoons melted coconut oil (I scoop coconut oil out of the jar into a small mug and heat it in microwave for 60-90 seconds to melt it)

2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup

1½ teaspoons vanilla extract

1-3 teaspoons of water

Sprinkle of sea salt

Sprinkle of cinnamon (optional)

2-4 Tablespoons dark chocolate chips (depending on how chocolate-y you like your cookies, non-dairy if vegan)

(makes 9 cookies, on the small side)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix the dry ingredients: almond meal, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon, if including.  Stir in the coconut oil, honey or maple syrup, and vanilla extract.  Add in water as needed to bind the mixture (I used 3 teaspoons).  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Form into cookies and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.  Bake for 10-11 minues.  As tempting as it might be to bite into a cookie right away, let them sit for about 10 minutes so they harden up on the inside.  I stored mine in the fridge, and made the mistake of heating one of them up in the microwave- beware that almond meal and nuking don’t go well together.
