Gluten Free Chocolate Almond Cookies

Chocolate almond cookies

Through some experimentation with ingredients, I have come up with these super cool chocolate cookies. They are gluten free and milk free, using only simple ingredients. I also chose to use farm raised eggs for this recipe. If you can, farm raised and free range eggs are ideal for ethical reasons. You can also look for fair trade cocoa. This recipe has no added sugar but the cookies are still sweet and it is extremely easy to make. These are my new all time favorite cookies!

This recipe uses simple ingredients. In a bowl, you can mix coconut flour, cacao powder, almond butter, honey, vanilla, melted coconut oil, cinnamon, baking powder, vanilla and one egg.

Chocolate almond cookie batter

Simply blend the ingredients with an electric mixer until well blended but slightly crumbly. If the batter is so dry that it won’t stick together you can add more coconut oil or a touch of almond milk.
