Paleo Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies (better then some non-paleo)

Did you notice how this picture is larger then the other ones?! They are so good that they deserve a larger picture!  When people think Paleo cookies, I'm sure no one is expecting them to be good at all. As in 'only desperate people on a paleo diet would make such non-sense', well you are wrong because these cookies rock!  These are so chewy and take only 20 minutes to make so whip up a batch yourself!

1 egg
1/4 cup honey
3 tablespoon grass-fed butter, softened (it's at whole foods)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut flakes
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips

1. Preheat the oven to 350
2. Whisk egg, honey, butter and vanilla is a largerish bowl
3. In another bowl, put flour, coconut, baking soda and salt
4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet (slowly, don't just plop in!)
5. Stir in the chocolate chips and help yourself to a handful to eat now.
6. Using a tablespoon, scoop up a nice size amount of the dough and put on parchment paper.  Make sure you leave some space between each cookie or else you'll end up with a nice sheet of 1 cookie.
7. Bake for 10- 12 minutes (however depending on your oven, at around 8min you should take out and put a toothpick in to test- if the toothpick comes out clear it's ready- if toothpick has crud on it, it means you need to chill and keep it in there a bit longer)
8. Let it sit for 10 minutes then put on wire rack to cool
9. Who are we kidding, why would we wait until it's cool! Cookies were meant to be devoured the second it comes out! Enjoy!
