I think I have a real problem here people!  I have these "little love drops" perfected!  Each Saturday night we treat ourselves to a  Paleo cheat (it helps us to not feel deprived and stay on track the rest of the week.)  I usually try to experiment with different recipes each time.  To be honest, it has been awhile since I have made anything other than these darn cookies.  They have me completely smitten, to say the least!  Like the best, ooey -gooey, chocolate chip cookie you have ever had!  I am waiting to get sick of them but instead I dream about them....this really is LOVE!  In honor of Valentine's Day, I thought I would help you fall in love:)



-1/2 cup coconut flour, sifted
-1/2 cup almond flour
-1 tsp. baking soda
-1/4 tsp. baking powder
-1 tsp. sea salt
-1/2 tsp. cinnamon
-2 really ripe, brown bananas
-1/2 avocado (about 1/3 cup mashed)
-1 cup canned coconut milk (regular, not light)
-4 Tbsp. honey
-1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
-1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
-2 eggs
-1/3 cup shredded coconut
-3/4 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips


-Preheat oven to 375 degrees
-In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients. (coconut flour, almond flour, baking soda & powder, sea   salt, and cinnamon)
-In a large bowl, mash avocado and banana well with a fork.  Then add remaining wet ingredients.
-Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, mixing well and working out clumps.
-On a parchment lined cookie sheet drop about 2 Tbsp. of dough per cookie.  For an ooey-gooey center leave the cookie rounded.  If and evenly baked cookie is desired, press down and flatten the tops slightly.
-Bake cookies for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.  ( I usually set my timer for 16 minutes and keep a watchful eye until they are done.)

ENJOY!  Eat Well & Be Happy:)
