I am going to share a secret with you...
I was never really good in baking cookies. Yep! On this journey on going as much as possible gluten-free, every time I tried to bake cookies, they turned not too well. But I finally got it right!
This recipe is gluten-free, sweetened by maple syrup and so so delicious. Did I say it is easy-peasy to make? Yesss! Like super easy. And...you can make in less than 20 minutes!
If you want to serve as a dessert, you can make my berries ice cream recipe here. Yummy!
Ingredients (12 cookies)
2 cups almond flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt + for sprinkling
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup tablespoon maple syrup or you can use raw honey
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips. I like this one here!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients almond flour, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine. Then add maple syrup or honey, olive oil, and vanilla extract and stir to combine until dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in chocolate chips.
Scoop dough with a tablespoon and roll into a small ball. Space about an inch and a half apart on baking sheet. Using the palm on your hand, press ball down forming the cookie shape. Sprinkle with sea salt.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until edges are just golden brown. Let them rest on baking sheet for 10 minutes then transfer to wire cooling rack.
Store the cookies in an airtight container.
