finally, a healthy Passover dessert- chocolate chip cookies your kiddos will want them year round

Ok here is the relationship between me and passover. I dread this holiday because I love it so much. Only because I genuinely enjoy matzah (not more than bread though don't get it twisted) and also because I tend to explore recipes which have no wheat! So for the next week I will eat my weight in matzah yet feel so good about myself for being "paleo" LOL who am I kidding. Anyways, this chocolate chip cookie recipe is awesome because it actually is paleo, and gluten free! I promise you will make them year round for you and your family. 


3/4 cup unsalted creamy almond butter 1/2 cup organic coconut sugar 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted and cooled 2 eggs 1/4 cup coconut flour (I used Trader Joe's) 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/3 cup dairy free dark chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life) 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In the bowl of a food processor, add in almond butter, coconut sugar and coconut oil; process until it comes together, about 1 minute. Add in eggs and process again. The dough will probably seize up at this point, but don't worry that's okay. Next, add in coconut flour, baking soda and salt; process again until a dough forms. Gently fold in chocolate chips. Use a cookie scoop to drop dough onto prepared cookie sheet. You can flatten dough with the palm of your hand if you'd like to have cookies like mine in the photo, or if you prefer, you can leave the dough as is and cookies will be a bit puffier. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cookies turn slightly golden brown around the edges. Allow them to cool on cookie sheet for at least 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. Repeat with remaining dough. Makes around 20 cookies. 

Happy Passover to you all! Xo
