I saw the weather predicted rain and I wanted to turn the oven on and make something sweet. Time for cookies! 

2 cups almond meal, or almond flour
1/4 cup coconut oil, softened
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup dark chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. In a medium bowl, mix the almond meal, salt, and baking soda, then add the coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract. 
3. Fold in the chocolate chips, then drop batter by rounded tablespoons onto a baking sheet
4. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes, until the edges are golden brown.
5. Allow to cool on the pan for 10 minutes, then serve warm or allow to cool to room temperature
