Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

I had a huge chocolate chip cookie craving one night.  I found this recipe for paleo chocolate chip cookies but I didn't have the dark chocolate to cut up.  I used our cocoa nibs instead and didn't get the melty chocolate taste of a chocolate chip.  They tasted nutty, not chocolatey.  I now have some nice dark chocolate in the house so I can try this recipe again!

  • 1 cup almond meal
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk
  • ¼ cup chopped dark chocolate pieces

Combine all of the cookie ingredients together in a bowl.  Place a silpat on a baking sheet.  Scoop about 10 cookies onto the silpat.  I got exactly 10 out of the recipe.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 11 minutes.  The edges should be starting to brown.  Remove from oven and let cool.  They will be very soft so let the cookies rest on the pan before moving them to a cooling rack.
