Hi guys! It’s been a busy week and it’s going to get busier, so I apologize for being MIA. But Happy Monday! I actually made these cookies on the weekend, but these cookies can definitely be enjoyed every day!

The combination of the almonds, chocolate chip and honey is quite a delight, so if you love cookies and you’re a fan of those three main ingredients, then I believe these yummy wonders are right up your alley 🙂 Have an amazing day everyone!

Recipe: Yields 12 cookies (depending on the size)

Dry Ingredients:

¾ cup quinoa flour
½ cup tapioca starch
½ tsp. gluten/aluminum free baking powder
¼ tsp. gluten/aluminum free baking soda

Wet Ingredients:

1 organic cage free egg
1/3 cup organic raw honey
1 tsp. organic pure vanilla extract
¼ cup organic virgin coconut oil (or ghee)

Final add-ins:

½ cup raw crushed almonds
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (I used Enjoy life)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Mix wet and dry ingredients in separate bowls before bringing them together in one bowl.

Add in chocolate chips and almonds and gently incorporate it into the batter until they are evenly spread out; do not over mix.

Using a cookie scoop, scoop cookie size portions into the baking sheet. Place cookies in the oven and bake for 10 minutes until the cookies begin to brown around the edges.

When ready, place the baking sheet on the counter and let the cookies cool for 2-5 minutes, depending on how eager you are to devour them.

Enjoy with a glass of milk if you’ll like to kick it old school or with tea if you want to be fancy 😉
