If you're like me, you think the dough is the best phase of a cookie's life and the best form to enjoy it in.  Yes, I love fresh-baked cookies, but there's just something about the unique texture and coolness of raw cookie dough that you can't find in anything else.  Here's a guilt-free, Paleo, and vegan way to indulge every now and then, without feeling bad that nothing made it into the oven!

Purely Cookie Dough

Prep time: 15 minutes   Cook time: 0 minutes  Total time: 15 minutes

Yield: 2 servings



1.  Melt coconut oil in the microwave on the stove over medium-low heat.  It won't take very long, and you don't want it to boil, so keep an eye out!

2.  Mix together all ingredients, except chocolate chips.

3.  Once a dough-like consistency is formed, fold in the chocolate chips.

4.  Store in fridge for 10-15 minutes to allow dough to firm up, then enjoy!

1 1/2 cups almond flour/meal (I used the leftover meal from my Nut Milk)

1/3 cup coconut oil

1/3 cup maple syrup

2 Tbsp honey

1 tsp vanilla extract

Pinch of sea salt

1/3 cup chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life brand) or cacao nibs
