O' Christmas Treats: Body SymmetryMD 's Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you think eating healthfully during the holidays is impossible, have we got good news for you...

Here's a yummy and nutritious Christmas favorite from our Body SymmetryMD wellness squad that even Santa will love!

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies 

- 3 1/4 cups almond  meal
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 tablespoon organic vanilla  extract
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
- 2 eggs

1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Grab a cookie sheet and some parchment paper or aluminum foil.

2. Combine 3 and 1/4 cups of almond flour with a teaspoon of salt and a teaspoon of baking soda.

3. In a large bowl combine 2 eggs, a teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/2 cup of coconut oil and 1/2 cup of honey.

4. Combine wet and dry ingredients, then add 1 and 1/2 cups chocolate chips.

5. Spoon mixture in to small balls, place them onto parchment paper/foil-covered cookie sheet and pop them into the oven (this recipe makes about 24 cookies, and we usually prepare 2 rounds of 12).

6. Bake cookies for about 8-10 minutes (the tops will start to turn golden brown). 

7. Place a few cookies on a plate. Leave the plate next to a glass of almond (or rice) milk for Santa and enjoy the rest of your delicious, low-calories treats!
