Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies + Homemade Chocolate Chips (Paleo and Almost SCD)

When I decided to introduce a bit of chocolate back into my diet, I HAD to find a good recipe for chocolate chip cookies. The one I used to make these cookies was one of the first ones I clicked on. These cookies are absolutely AMAZING. The recipe can be found on elanaspantry.com, she has so many great recipes and has written a couple of awesome cookbooks! Here is the link: http://www.elanaspantry.com/dairy-free-gluten-free-chocolate-chip-cookies/. I also decided to make homemade chocolate chips because there are literally no chocolate chips out there without added soy, dairy, sugar, etc. People on Paleo often use enjoy life chocolate chips, but they have evaporate cane juice, which is not SCD legal! I’ll rewrite the recipe (credit to elanaspantry.com!) here because I made a few substitutions:


Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 cup of coconut oil (the original recipe calls for grapeseed oil)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup honey (the original recipe calls for agave nectar) 
  • 1 cup of homemade chocolate chunks**

Directions:

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, put parchment paper on a baking pan, form cookies and place them on the pan, bake at 350 degrees fahrenheit


**Homemade Chocolate Chunks

Melt the chocolate in a pan, add honey to taste. The chocolate will have a weird texture, but thats because of the honey. Also, make sure to add enough honey, because if you don’t, the chocolate will be REALLY bitter (I learned the hard way). Next, line a pan with parchment paper and smooth the chocolate mixture over the parchment paper. Put the chocolate in the freezer and then cut it into chunks when it has solidified. ( I recommend making a big batch and storing it in the freezer for whenever you need chocolate chips!)
