Paleo Double Chocolate Cakies

So today I decided to try my very first paleo treat! I love to bake, but my crossfit coach is trying to get me out of it since it uses so much flour and sugar! I found a recipe that looked very yummy from http://www.multiplydelicious.com for double chocolate cakies. They have the consistency of cake but are baked like cookies!
Are paleo desserts healthy?
No not necessarily…but they are a lot healthier than normal cookies!!
I don’t suggest you make a paleo dessert everyday, but when your craving a treat these will definitely fill that craving! Enjoy 🙂

Ingredients:
2 ripe bananas
2 tblsp almond butter
3 1/4 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 1/4 cups almond flour
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl mash bananas with a hand mixer.
Add the next 5 ingredients and mix well.
Add the almond flour and mix.
Fold in the chocolate chips with a spoon.
Scoop tablespoons of batter onto parchment paper. (Should make about 12).
Bake for 15 minutes.
*Since these are cake-like cookies, refrigerate them after they cool. These cookies are even better the next day.
