Guilt Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
3 cups almond flour
1 tsp baking soda, gluten-free
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup extra-virgin organic coconut oil
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 large egg
2 egg whites
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 and line two baking sheets with parchment paper (these will stick, so this is an important step).
Combine almond flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl and mix well. Set aside.
Beat oil and maple syrup until creamy, approximately 4-5 minutes (we called it at 3 mins)
Add egg, egg whites, and extract; beat for an additional 2 minutes.
Add almond flour mixture to egg mixture and mix until blended.
Add chocolate chips; mix until just blended
Drop by rounded TBSP onto baking sheets. Flatten cookie with a spatula if traditional cookie appearance is desired (we were too impatient for cookies, so we skipped this).
Bake for 14-16 minutes until golden brown.
