The Best Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

On days like today (cold, cloudy, and rainy despite the fact that it's May already) the urge to bake is much, much stronger than the urge to fit in a good workout. The apartment treadmill is broken so the only option is to run outside. And let's face it, it's cold outside and I'm sick of it. I seem to work on the warm, sunny days and have the grody ones off.

Anyway. Make these. They're amazing, if I do say so myself. Ross agrees.

Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 cup quinoa flakes
2 Tbs. coconut flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
4 Tbs. butter (1/4 cup)
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Mix butter, egg, vanilla, and sugar in a medium bowl. Add almond meal, quinoa flakes, coconut flour, salt, and baking soda. Beat well. Add chocolate chips and stir until incorporated.

Roll into balls (if the dough is too sticky, we your hands first) and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 7-9 minutes. Makes 12 cookies.
