Ingredients

  • 2 cups of Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour

  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup softened (not melted) butter (equivalent to 1 stick)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.
  2. Blend almond flour, Monk Fruit sweetener, salt and baking soda in a large bowl.
  3. Add to dry ingredients stick of butter.  Using your hands (I recommend gloves), combine the butter and dry ingredients.
  4. Add egg and vanilla to mixture and continue to blend by hands. The mixture will be wet. Add chocolate chips.
  5. Roll 1 inch dough balls by hand and place on baking sheet. Do not flatten the cookie - they will bake up really soft in the middle if you leave them in the rounded shape. You'll have enough dough to make about 14-16 cookies.
