Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies

Shark week. 
Need I say more ladies?
It is the week that all your hard work can go out the window because the evil Bitch wants chocolate and she wants it NOW!
NO!
Not this time.
This is what we do. 
We pause for a second and realize we CAN have it, we just gotta make it! 
We are like everyone else. We have cravings. We just know how to make them healthy. This is how I help people lose weight while EATING everything they love. You just need the knowledge! Knowledge is power and this is why working with a nutritionist is priceless. Oh hey, I am a nutritionist, and I help people online with their nutrition. If you need help, be sure to send me an message.

Back to these amazing cookies.
I would take these over any other cookie any day of the week. Especially fresh from the oven. If you use Enjoy life chocolate chips then this recipe is free from most allergens. I use God given sweetener. The syrup from a tree, or the honey from a bee, and very very little of it. I find a 50/50 blend of the two makes for perfection. These are also gluten free, grain free, soy free, and PACKED with protein. 
These boast:
150 calories per cookie
5 grams protein per cookie
3 grams fiber per cookie

So they actually add nutrition. The ingredients are wholesome REAL food. You can cut back on the calories if you want to lower the chocolate chip count, but I say INDULGE! Having one of these is like having a scoop of peanut butter healthwise... so GO FOR IT!

Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies
makes 16 cookies

2 cups Almond flour 
1/4 cup coconut flour 
1/3 cup PURE RAW honey or PURE maple syrup or 50/50
1/2 tablespoon baking powder 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
2 teaspoons vanilla 
1 egg
3/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven for 375
Mix all ingredients, except chocolate chips, together until fully blended like dough.
Stir in chocolate chips. 
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper to prevent sticking. 
Scoop the cookies into 16 mounds. I used the pampered chef cookie scoop to make them all the same size. 
Bake for 13 minutes. Serve warm, or cold, or however you like.
