Cocoa Cookies
Jessica Merchant


3/4 cup ground almonds
1 1/4 cups ground oats (grind in blender)
1 1/4 cups flour (I use whole wheat)
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup oil (I use olive, but canola works, too)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 pinch salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Combine ground almonds, ground oats, flour, cocoa, salt and chocolate chips.
  3. Add maple syrup and oil and mix until well combined and dough forms.
  4. Scoop out heaping teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet and bake at 15 to 20 minutes; cookies should be just set.
