My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

September 6, 2016

Who doesn't love chocolate chip cookies?! If you don't, I am sorry to say but your missing out...I mean come on how can you resist the crisp edges, soft and chewy middle, and dark chocolate chunks...yum...yum...yum!  Not to mention that I add my favorite nut butter and coconut oil to the mix.  Using coconut oil tends to add a nutty flavor making these cookies a little sweeter, wonderfully thick, and absolutely scrumptious.  They are easy to make and are perfect if your craving a little after dinner treat!  Give them a try and ENJOY!





4 large eggs

1/2 cup honey

2 Tablespoon organic unsalted butter, warmed

1/4 cup coconut oil, warmed

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 packet Justin's Almond Butter

1/2 cup coconut flour

1 cup almond flour

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 heaping cup of dark chocolate chips 




Step 1:  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a medium bowl, add the eggs, honey, butter, coconut oil, vanilla, and your favorite nut butter.  Whisk until thoroughly combined.


My secret ingredient:  Justin's Almond Butter


 Step 2:  Add coconut flour, almond flour, and baking soda.  Mix together until everything is combined.  Don't forget to add in the best part...


I like to use Ghirardelli's 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips!


Step 3:  Use a spoon to drop a dollop onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes.  Typically, I find that 15 minutes is perfect but if you want a little longer go right ahead!  



Step 4:  Lastly, remove from oven and let them rest for about 5-10 minutes before removing to a plate.
