Ingredients~

3 Cups Blanched Almond Flour

1 Tsp Baking Soda

2 Eggs

1/2 Cup Pure Maple Syrup

1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

In a medium sized bowl combine the dry ingredients

In another bowl, beat the eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla extract with a hand mixer

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and beat with the mixer

Mix the coconut oil until it is combined

Stir in the chocolate chips

On parchment paper, drop tablespoon sized drops of the batter

Bake for 15 minutes

Let it cool and serve with coconut milk 🙂
