Summer days are for loosing track of the time and not really knowing what day of the week it is. I was just telling my husband the other day how I feel like I’m in a bubble this summer and it’s quite incredible. Mommy-hood is nothing like I expected it to be and I feel like all those pictures of mommies in my head is nothing like I feel. I have an overwhelming love for my precious baby, but not like I’ve crossed over to a different world. Every time I look at him I just think, do you really want us to be your parents? I feel as if I’m given this large task to care for this angel of a baby and I’m so undeserving of such privilege. How do I live each day making his world better, taking care of my husband, keeping the house, and still get enough coffee(but not too much to make me crazy) to keep me awake to do it all? Well making some delicious soft-baked cookies is a great start.
2 cups almond flour
3 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
2. Add the coconut oil and maple syrup (the coconut oil should not be melted). Mix until combined. Add the egg and vanilla and whisk together until combined.
3. In a separate bowl, add the almond flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the wet minute and stir just until combined.
4. Scoop tablespoon-size cookies onto prepared baking sheet. Add chocolate chips on top.
5. Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
6. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 7 days.
