This is a quick and easy way to get a delicious and wholesome treat on the table. These grain free cookies are always a hit, no one will notice that there is no flour, no gluten and only 4 tablespoons of sweetener in the whole batch, they are just delicious!

 Makes one dozen cookies

1/3 cup butter
3 tbsp sugar (I use mascobado, but coconut sugar or any other sugar will do)
1 tbsp maple syrup 
1 egg
3/4 tbsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup almond meal 
2 tbsp coconut flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
1/3 cup chopped toasted pecans (or any toasted nuts) 

Preheat the oven to 350ºF
Cream together by hand or using a food processor the butter, sugar, maple syrup, vanilla and egg. 
Mix together the almond meal, coconut flour, baking soda and salt. Add dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined. Gently stir in the chocolate chips and nuts.
Drop batter by heaping tablespoons onto a parchment lined baking sheet and flatten slightly.
Bake until golden, about 10 minutes.
