    Coconut Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

    These cookies are not too sweet, decadent and (you've been warned), mildly addictive. Virgin coconut oil takes the place of butter, and shredded, unsweetened coconut gives the cookie an extra, tropical touch. Puffed amaranth adds to these nutrient dense ingredients, it's a cookie that's almost like a healthy snack. You're welcome!


    Ingredients
    1
    cup
    almond flour
    1/4
    cup
    puffed amaranth
    1/4
    cup
    arrowroot flour
    1/2
    teaspoon
    baking soda
    1/2
    teaspoon
    sea salt
    3
    tablespoons
    shredded, unsweetened coconut
    *
    pinch
    nutmeg
    1/2
    cup
    virgin coconut oil
    1/2
    heaping cup coconut palm sugar
    1
    large egg
    1 1/2
    teaspoons
    pure vanilla extract
    1
    cup
    dark chocolate chips
    1/4
    cup
    chopped walnuts
    Directions
    Line two cookie sheets with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper.
    In a medium bowl, whisk together almond flour, amaranth, arrowroot flour, baking soda, salt, shredded coconut, and nutmeg until fully combined.
    Using a hand mixer, beat the coconut oil, coconut sugar, egg and vanilla in a large bowl on medium until fully incorporated and smooth (roughly 2 minutes). Use a spatula to scrape down the bowl and mix again.
    Add chocolate chips and walnut pieces, using spatula to combine. Refrigerate for 20 minutes. Preheat your oven to 350 F.
    Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop cookie dough and drop onto prepared cookie sheets. Leave a space between them as the cookies will spread.
    Bake for 8-10 minutes until the bottoms and edges are golden and tops look firm.
    Let cool on the cookie sheet for a couple of minutes before transferring to wire racks (give them time to firm up). Serve immediately if you like a crisp on the outside, gooey in the center cookie. Or store in an airtight container for 3-4 days on countertop. These cookies can be frozen too if you don't plan on eating them within a few days.
