Hooray these are the perfect hearty chocolatey, chewy and crunchy combination for a sweet tooth!

Nutty  Chocolate Cookies (Paleo, sugar-free, gluten-free, milk-free)

1 C coconut oil softened

1 C sweetener w ith drizzle of molasses

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2-2 1/2 cups nut flour (I made my own mixing peanuts and almonds…yum!)

1/4-1/2 C cocoa powder (depending on how chocolately you want it

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4-1/2 C crushed mixed nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix wet ingredients together, then mix in flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda until the dough is somewhat firm (you can always add a bit more flour or oil to change consistencty. Place in freezer for 10 minutes to make sure dough is firm. Mix in nuts or chocolate chips or dried fruit or shredded coconut…I just used mixed nuts because that’s what I had:)

Scoop onto greased baking sheet with ice cream scoop. Bake in oven about 15 minutes until toothpick comes out clean from center of cookie. Let cool for a few minutes on pan, then spatula them out onto a plate or cooling rack to let them get crisp and congealed…:)

Enjoy!
