Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies & Season 4 Is Back!

Paleo here, Paleo there, Paleo everywhere.  All my friends keep talking about their new diet called Paleo.  AKA: The caveman diet.  It's a pretty cool thing to cut back on sugar and focus on meats, seafood, veggies, fruits, and nuts.

So for my very first episode of season 4 I whipped up a batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies, and decided to make them Paleo.  I substitute sugar for honey, flour for almond flour, oil for coconut oil, and the chocolate chips are soy free, dairy free.

For a chocolate chip lover I do say they taste strange, but a good strange that totally grows on you.  Especially if you are diabetic and have to stay away from sugar I recommend this recipe.

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups sifted blanched almond flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1 cup Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips (soy free, dairy free)

1 organic cage-free egg
1/3 cup raw honey (melted)
1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla Extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large bowl, mix together the almond flour, baking soda, and salt with a fork.
Add the chocolate chips to the dry mixture and combine.
In a small separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients together, honey, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and egg. You may need to heat the honey and coconut oil in order to liquefy them, remember to heat before you add the egg.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until evenly mixed.
Let the dough chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. 
For baking the ramekins
