Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Paleo Chocolate Cookies

Photo: Chocolate walnut cookies ( gluten free, soy free and dairy free)

In a baking mood.... bread or cookie ! Finally decided on cookies. I am really not good at baking cookies.. They often came out over baked.  And .. I over baked this one too. But it still taste pretty good. The BF had 4 pieces when he came back from work... so I guess it is good ;)

Adapted the recipe from Elana's pantry for this.  Instead of grapeseed flour, I added unsweetened cocoa powder. Also, I added walnut instead of chocolate chips.. for the basic reason that I do not believe that chocolate chips are Paleo ( even though some Paleo fanatic claimed it is )

(Modified version. Refer to Elana's pantry for the original recipe )
2 1/4 cups blanched almond flour
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ cup grapeseed oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoon of honey ( the BF feedback : 4 tablespoon would be awesome if you have sweet tooth)
1 cup chopped walnuts

1. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl
2. Stir together wet ingredients in a smaller bowl
3. Mix wet ingredients into dry Form ½-inch 1-inch balls and press onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet
4. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes
5. Cool and serve
