Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies (gluten free, dairy free, sugar free)

I know, they sound gross, but they are so good for being so healthy! Very coconuty-tasting, which I like.

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

yields 1 dozen cookies

1/4 cup coconut oil at room temp or palm shortening
1 egg at room temperature
1/4 coconut crystals (coconut palm sugar)
2 Tbs. honey
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
2 Tbs. coconut flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/4 cup dark chocolate pieces (dairy free)
1/4 cup dairy free chocolate chips

1. preheat oven to 350
2. place the shortening and egg in a food processor and process for 15 seconds
3. add the coconut crystals, honey, and vanilla. Process again until combined.
4. add the flours, baking soda, and salt. Process for 30 seconds.
5. Scrape down the sides and pulse again if necessary to fully incorporate the dry ingredients.
6. stir the chocolate in by hand.
7. use a large tablespoon to scoop balls of the dough, placing them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Lightly press them down to flatten, making disks about 1/2 inch thick.
8. Bake for 10 minutes, until the cookies are browned around the edges. Cool on a wire rack.
