Almond Meal Cookies with Chocolate Chips and Coconut

Monday night we were craving something sweet and knew I had enough ingredients to whip up something delicious. These almond meal cookies with chocolate chips and coconut were the perfect treat. They have quickly become Luke’s favorite. They’re easy, delicious and a great motification to the classic chocolate chip cookie.

With only one egg and coconut acting as the perfect sweetener these cookies will leave you energized instead of weighed down!

Three things I loved about this recipe: It was simple, healthy and quick to prepare; not to mention it yielded some seriously amazing chocolate chip cookies that any eater – gluten free or not – would be pleased to pick up. *While the recipe below says it yields 20, we made larger cookies and ended up with about a dozen.
