What I love most is that this recipe can be a base for any flavor you want. I thought that maybe replacing the coconut oil with peanut or almond butter would be nice for a chocolate-peanut butter version. Or, add some cinnamon, orange zest, and raisins for another variation. The real key here is the almond flour. Marta said you could also use a mix of coconut flour with almond flour, too.
However you do it, you can feel a bit better knowing these cookies are free from processed flours and sugars. Its not too sweet and has a bit more protein than a regular cookie. So, it keeps you full a bit longer than a regular chocolate chip cookie and manages your blood sugar levels a little better.
