Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies (gluten free, dairy free)
Yield: 12 cookies
You will need: measuring cups and spoons, mixing bowl, wooden spoon, baking sheet
1 1/4 cups almond meal flour (other nut flours work too)
2-3 T cacao powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup coconut oil, avocado oil or olive oil (add about half of this to start to check the texture – see below)
1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
1/4 cup dark chocolate pieces
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Mix almond meal, cacao powder, salt and baking soda.
3. Stir in vanilla and honey and mix well. Add oil a little at a time. Depending on a variety of factors (including climate, brands of ingredients etc) this batter can do different things. You want a somewhat stiff batter to lay on your cookie sheet, so if it’s super runny before adding the oil try going without. If it seems ok, try adding a tablespoon or two at a time (a 1/4 cup is 4 tablespoons). For some of you, it will be just fine to add the entire amount. Don’t be afraid to mess around a little or add a little more almond meal flour.
4. Add chocolate pieces. Bake for 7-9 minutes.
