blogtember | day twenty-three







rather than a family recipe, this is a friend recipe. a couple weekends ago, i was at a bachelorette party, and the bride-to-be made these cookies. it was like heaven in my mouth, y'all. the next morning when i was gathering my things, i searched for any leftover cookies like some kind of drug addict.

i got the recipe and made them earlier this week. i was a little nervous with how they'd turn out because they are baked with almond flour + coconut oil - two things i've never used. i sat the plate of cookies on the coffee table, they were gone in five minutes! everyone was raving about these cookies, which made me feel like betty crocker or something. :)






INGREDIENTS

2 tablespoons solid coconut oil
3 tablespoons organic honey*
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups almond flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon fine-grain sea salt
1/2 cup of chocolate chips


preheat oven to 375 degrees. line baking sheet with parchment paper. 
[i didn't have any, so i used some liquid coconut oil. it worked great!] 
set aside.

add the coconut oil + the honey in a bowl. 
stir briskly with a whisk until they are mixed well. 
add the egg and vanilla, whisk until combined.

in another bowl, add the almond flour + baking soda + salt.

add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. stir well, and add chocolate chips. 

scoop onto cookie sheet. press down gently with finger. 
[i did this right before i took them out of the over, and it was fine.] 
top with additional chocolate chips, if desired. 
bake until edges are golden brown, 8-9 minutes. 


*the original recipe calls for maple syrup, but my friend used honey instead.
she also crushed up a chocolate bar, but i couldn't find one, so i opted for chocolate chips.
