Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

I personally haven't tried this diet but I saw this recipe and thought I'd share:

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

By Elana Amsterdam

2 cups blanched almond flour
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp sea salt
¼ cup Spectrum all-vegetable shortening
¼ cup honey
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
½ cup dark chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a food processor, pulse together the almond flour, baking soda and salt. Add the shortening, honey and vanilla extract and pulse until thoroughly combined. Remove the blade from the food processor and stir in the chocolate chips. Scoop the dough 1 tablespoon at a time onto the prepared baking sheets, pressing down with your palm to flatten, leaving 2 inches between each cookie.

Bake for 6 to 9 minutes, until golden brown. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 20 minutes, then serve warm.

Cook's Note

*I have tried this recipe mixing ingredients in a bowl with a spoon (instead of a food processor), and the cookies still turned out wonderful.

Makes 16 to 24 cookies.
