Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are the best paleo chocolate chip cookies EVER.
 That's a bold statement, I get that.  But seriously, I have a 3 year old, and I've had and made many chocolate chip cookies over the years.  I've had many really good paleo chocolate chip cookies and in fact I have my own recipe that I've been using for awhile now.  It's really good!  It makes a sort of crunchy chocolate chip cookie and the crumb is really nice.  But these are like soft baked cafeteria chewy gooey chocolate chip cookies.  Did your high school cafeteria have those? They come warm out of the oven ooey gooey and chewy.  

If you follow me on Instagram you know I'm obsessed with cashew butter.  It's my favorite and I often start spreading it on random shit and adding it to stuff... Well that's what happened here and whoa.  What a difference 1/4 cup of cashew butter makes in this recipe! I was mixing up a batch for my family, and decided to add some cashew butter because it was just sitting there on the counter staring at me.  So, I figured instead of slathering you on banana bread or stuffing dates with you tonight I'll add you to my cookies!!! Score. Enjoy.  Tell me about it.  I love hearing your feedback.  

*Makes 14 cookies

1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup cashew butter (any nut butter will substitute) 
1/4 cup butter, melted (coconut oil or ghee will substitute)
1/2 cup coconut sugar (or other granulated sugar like maple sugar)
1 large egg
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I use EnjoyLife mini chips)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract


1.  Preheat oven to 350F.  Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

2.  Place the almond flour, coconut flour, coconut sugar, sea salt and baking soda in the food processor.  Pulse a few times to combine and transfer to a large mixing bowl.

3.  Lightly beat the egg with the vanilla in a small bowl.

4.  Melt the butter on the stovetop on low.  

5.  Add the egg, melted butter, and cashew butter to the large mixing bowl. Mix to combine. 

6.  Add the chocolate chips in last.  

7.  Drop 1 tbsp sized cookies into the cookie sheets, allowing room for expansion.  Flatten with a fork.

8.  Bake for 10 minutes on middle rack.  

9.  Enjoy!!!
