Guilt Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

   Since I’m technically on Mat leave right now I’m enjoying lots of time recipe testing in the kitchen. I’ve been experimenting with all sorts of “guilt-free” baking. These chocolate chip cookies are light, fluffy and pretty delicious for having no sugar!  3/4 cup almond butter 2 tbsp coconut oil 2 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut 2 tbsp of molasses  2 tbsp of cocoa  2 eggs 1/4 cup of coconut flour 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/4 tsp salt 1/3 cup unsweetened, dark chocolate chips Preheat oven to 350 and line a tray with parchment paper. Mix almond butter, cocoa, molasses and coconut together in food processor. Add eggs, coconut flour, coconut oil, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chips. Using a spoon, scoop out dough and form into balls, flatten them onto your baking sheet. Note, the dough will be sticky. Bake for about 10-15 minutes.
