Smashing Paleo Chocolate Cookies

I love a good cookie.  And I love chocolate.  And so, Smashing Chocolate Cookies were born.  They are easy peasy.  But beware, the chocolate packs a punch.  So keep them away from your toddler unless you actually want a bit of crazy in your life.

Why smashing?  Because it's British.  Yep, I'm one of those.  Plus, these cookies are just so darn good, they deserved a title with some punch.  When you make them, make sure you eat at least one while it's warm. You will be gobsmacked.

Smashing Chocolate Cookies


2 C almond meal
1/4 C cocoa powder
1/4 t baking soda
1/4 t salt
1 stick of butter, melted
1/3 C maple syrup
dark chocolate bar of choice


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium sized bowl, combine all dry ingredients.  In a small bowl, combine the butter and maple syrup.  Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until a nice dough forms.

Drop spoonfuls of dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for about 8 minutes.  After you take the cookies out of the oven, but before you take them off the sheet, place a dark chocolate square (from the dark chocolate bar) on each cookie.  Make sure you do this gently, as the cookies will be very hot and you don't want to either burn your fingers or mush the cookies.  Let the chocolate topped cookies sit on the baking sheet for a minute or two, then remove to a plate or rack to cool.  Enjoy.
