Paleo Chocolate Chip Nut Cookies

Just when you think you have perfected the best Chocolate Chip cookie ever something even better comes along.  The original recipe that this one is based off of is from Fast Paleo called "The Best Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies".  And because of this recipe and some high quality nut flours I seriously feel like it is mastered.  I had been making these with Bob's Red Mill Almond flour until I ran out just before I needed to make a batch for my CrossFit Kids class.  I had no time to go to the store so I grabbed the Organic Almonds that my sister sent me from her awesome new company "Our Community Pantry" out of Portland, OR…(thanks Sheilah!) and I quickly grounded the almonds in my Baby Bullet (thank you Julie for that lovely gadget!)  Holy cow this cookie came out "Fresh"!  What a difference… I don't think I will ever buy pre-packaged nut flours again.  

I then used up the remainder of my almonds and wanted to make another batch for my kids this weekend… Looking in my pantry I found another bag of nuts that my sister sent me, Brazil Nuts.  I have never used these for anything and thought why not lets grind them up.  The baby bullet works perfectly by still leaving some chunks in the flour so it is completely fine.  This gives the cookies an awesome texture and the Brazil Nuts seem to have a little more oil in them so the consistency is a bit more soft and chewy than the Almond flour ones.  The flavor is amazing and from now on this will be my go to nut for this recipe.  I hope you all enjoy and please check out my sisters Nuts & Seeds business.  She ships to the Virgin Islands in a flat rate box and it gets here quickly.  Just tell her you know me and she will take great care of you!!  Enjoy!
