Paleo/GF Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s time for another Friday Cheat Day/Treat Day post!  I’ve been working on perfecting this recipe for the last few weekends, and I think it’s now ready for primetime.  These definitely meet my standard for being Paleo/GF friendly and servable to Normals without lengthy explainations about your dietary choices (unless you choose to give them!)  Enjoy!

The Stats:

Active Time: 10 min.

Total Time: 25 min.

Yield: 1 1/2 – 2 doz. cookies

Ingredients:

1 1/2 c. almond flour
1/4 c. butter at room temperature
1/4 c. cocoa
1/4 stevia, honey, or sweetener of choice
1 egg
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 c. dark chocolate chips
enough instant coffee powder to make 1 cup of coffee (I used one Starbucks Via package.)

1/4 c. chopped dried cherries (optional)

The How-To:

Preheat oven to 375.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sweetener.  Add egg and vanilla, then stir in coffee powder, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.  When well combined, add almond flour in thirds and stir until combined.  Fold in chocolate chips and cherries. 

Spoon onto parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.  Cool and enjoy.
