Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies
By: Ashley Tresoline
½ cup unsalted butter (organic), melted and cooled
1 cup coconut sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
1 cup almond flour
½ cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup dark chocolate chips or chunks
Melt the ½ cup of butter and set aside to cool
In a large bowl add the melted butter, coconut sugar and vanilla extract. Using a spatula, stir to until well combined. Gently add the egg, egg yolk and stir until smooth. Add the coconut flour, almond flour, baking soda and salt and stir until it forms a soft dough. Add the chocolate chips or chunks and stir to evenly distribute. Refrigerate for 1 hour but not longer than 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop 1/4-cup balls of cookie dough evenly onto the baking sheets leaving 1 inch between each scoop. Flatten them slightly. Bake until the edges are just set and the centers are still slightly soft, 13 to 15 minutes. Allow to cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheets, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
