Dessi and Rose made these Valentine’s day cookies the other day and they were fantastic. The chocolate cookies are paleo, gluten, and so easy to make. The texture of the cookies is very similar to the ones you get from a box at the store, but made with best in class ingredients.

How To Make Chocolate Cookies
The base of this cookie recipe is very versatile, we used it for shortbread cookies for the holiday too. Just add almond flour, tapioca starch, cacao powder, and salt to a large bowl and mix well.
To the same bowl, add maple syrup, vanilla extract, and 5 tablespoons of butter. Mix well using your hands, make sure to smash all of the butter into the almond flour then rest the dough in the fridge for at least 1 hour, ideally 3 hours.
Roll the dough to 1/4 thick and cut of heart shapes for Valentine’s day sand place on a parchment sheet lined baking tray. Bake for 18-22 minutes, until golden brown on the edges. Allow to cool before dipping in melted chocolate chips.
We used Hu chocolate gems, they are made with coconut sugar and the best chips you will ever taste! Store cookies in a air-tight container on the counter for 3 days.
