Surprisingly Fantastic and healthy cookies! Gluten-free, Paleo, Vegan!

Introduction

Paleo, Gluten-free, Vegan cookies. Paleo, Gluten-free, Vegan cookies.
Number of Servings: 26

Ingredients

    2 cups almond flour (I ground up almond slices in a food processor, which works on a 1:1 ratio)
    1/4 tsp sea salt
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/4 cup vegan shortening (I used pressed coconut oil, hard)
    1 mashed banana
    2 tbsp honey (replace with agave if you are a non-honey vegan)
    1/4 cup frozen blueberries
    1/4 cup sunflower seeds
    1/4 cup chocolate chips (make sure they are vegan/GF for diets!)

Tips

Try eating the raw dough. It's delicious AND safe!


Directions

Preheat oven to 350F
Mix everything together in whatever order suits you. Then, with glee, roll up balls that are only 1/2 inch in diameter (they might look small, but they'll flatten nicely).
I highly recommend using a silicon mat, and if you don't have one, buy one. Seriously, they are like $5 and now you don't have to spray calories all over the place just to bake.
Place 12 per sheet and bake 15-20 minutes, rotating halfway through. Rotating is really super important for baking, you guys. Read Cook's Illustrated to find that out.
When they are done (beginning to brown for those who like them soft, brown for those who like them crisp) put the silicon mat on a cooling rack (you can just peel off the cookies later, no problem). If you aren't using the rack well, put the cookie sheet on the cooling rack. Seriously, you can't move these cookies until they are cool.

Serving Size: Makes two dozen 2-inch cookies plus two extra for "tasting", or just eating the dough!
