A "Healthier" Chocolate Chip Cookie

The holiday season has finally come to an end, and I realized that I had not eaten the one dessert I most look forward to: a chocolate chip cookie that has chocolate dripping from the cookie to your mouth when you take a bite, that is warm and fresh out of the oven, that can only be eaten with a glass of milk. What the heck? There were cakes, brownies, pies, and all other assortments of dessert, but not the one-and-only chocolate chip cookie. Therefore, I decided, I needed to eat one to end the holidays right. And so, to feel less guilty, I began searching the worldwide web for the perfect "healthy" recipe. There are plenty out there, but none seemed to do it justice. So, I mixed a few recipes to create my own. And let me tell you, you would never know that this is a healthier version of a chocolate chip cookie. It's the real deal.

Scrumptious Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 c. almond meal
1/8-1/4 c. chocolate chips - amount depends on your liking
4 T maple syrup
2 T water
1/4 c. coconut oil
1 t cinnamon
1 t baking powder

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine almond meal, chocolate chips, cinnamon, and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Stir well.
3. Add water and coconut oil to the bowl and mix until evenly combined.
4. Spread oil onto a baking sheet and spoon the cookie dough onto the pan.
5. Place cookie dough into the oven and let bake for approximately 30 minutes.
