Ok seriously, these cookies have like 5 indgredients, all of which are nutritious and delicious. Next time you get a sweet tooth, I hope you give these a try!

This recipe was inspired by Taylor Made it Paleo.

I've had an insatiable sweet tooth of late, and don't like to load up on refined sugars. So I found this delightful paleo chocolate chip cookie recipe and thought I'd give it a go. Much to my pleasant surprise, these cookies are simple to make and delicious indeed. They're like little, glossy, fluffy, chocolate chippy bites of heaven. You'll see what I mean about "glossy." They've got a little sheen like they've been painted with lacquer. May you enjoy!

Ingredients:

1 cup chunky nut or seed butter (I used almond butter and it was divine.) 1/3 cup maple syrup 1 egg 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste 1/2 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts) 1/2-3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (preferably no refined sugar added)

Method:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Mix all ingredients thoroughly.

Using a large spoon, scoop the cookie dough into little balls and place them onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet (leave ample space between each as they expand).

Bake for 12-15 minutes.

Allow to cool, and enjoy!

Benefits:

In moderation, chocolate chip cookies can be good for the soul.
