Chocolate Chip Cookies (that might be gluten free too!)

I LOVE a good old fashioned chocolate chip cookie. It reminds me of the standard slice and bake Nestle cookies that I had at least once a week as a kid. Good news with this recipe, making a big batch once a week is no biggie! So enjoy with no guilt!

Ingredients

1/2 cup melted butter (grass fed, if possible)

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

3/4 cup brown sugar (you can sub 1/2 cup brown sugar with coconut sugar here if you want to cut the sugar content even more)

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 large eggs

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoonsalt

3 cups almond flour (I have used the Bob Mills brand; however, if you have plain almonds on hand, you can grind in food processor to make a flour.)

1 1/4 to 1/ 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips and/or chucks

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix butter, coconut oil, and sugar with a hand or stand mixer. Add in vanilla and eggs. Using mixer, beat for another minute. Add baking soda and baking powder and mix few seconds longer. Slowly add in almond flour. Stir in chocolate chips. Spoon onto a cookie sheet and bake for 12 – 15 minutes.
