Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies, Because Sometimes You Have To

Adapted from original recipe here.

Makes approximately 2 dozen teaspoon cookies

2 cups almond flour, finely ground
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup coconut oil, unmelted 
1 Tbsp honey or pure maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 handful of Paleo-friendly chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips in a large mixing bowl. Combine thoroughly and then fold in chocolate chips. Chill dough in freezer for 5 minutes to stiffen coconut oil. Using a coffee spoon, add spoonful-sized cookie balls to a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet and lightly press down. Bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes or until edges become golden brown. Cool for at least 10 minutes or cookies will crumble.

Note: store extra dough in freezer between batches to keep coconut oil firm.
