Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

We were getting ready to go to grandma's 90th birthday party when I realized that there probably wouldn't be any gluten free treats available there for my daugher. So I found a big ripe banana in the basket of fruit in my pantry, some dark chocolate chips in my freezer, and came up with these delicious gluten free, egg free, paleo, refined sugar free AMAZING cookies!

Don't worry about all the stuff they don't have, these babies are so good! As in good enough that I was swatting hands away while trying to take a picture before they all got eaten. I was lucky to make it out of there with one for myself before the feeding frenzy began. This recipe makes a dozen or so cookies. They're great to freeze for a quick, healthy treat and really good dunked in almond milk!

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 large ripe banana
1 cup almond flour
1/3 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup organic coconut oil, warmed to liquid
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/8 cup pure maple syrup or wild honey
dash sea salt
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (60% or higher)


Preheat the oven to 350. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. The coconut oil will become a liquid at warmer temperatures so just run the container under hot tap water until it liquifies. Use an electric mixer on medium-high speed so that the banana gets mashed and incorporated with all the other ingredients. There's no egg so if you're one of those cookie-dough-eating people then here's your chance to nibble ;) Otherwise roll the dough into balls and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. You can use a cooking spray or rub it with some coconut oil so they won't stick. I realized after a few minutes in the oven that the cookies would need some help flattening so I used my spatula to press them into a cookie shape. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
