Chocolate Walnut Cookies (gluten free)

We had a great weekend in Omaha celebrating Ross' birthday and now we're back in KC and back to work. I will post weekend pictures tomorrow, but for now: cookies!

These were inspired by another recipe from Elena's Pantry. I liked the idea of the double-chocolate mocha version, but we've eaten a lot of chocolate chips lately, so I improvised.

Chocolate Walnut Cookies
1 heaping cup almond flour
3 Tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup coconut oil or butter
1/4 cup maple syrup or agave
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3 cup walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. In a smaller bowl, stir together coconut oil, syrup, and vanilla. Stir wet ingredients into dry and then add walnuts. Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 7-8 minutes. Makes 12 cookies.
