These cookies are rich, moist and chewy... and paleo friendly!

Adapted from Multiply Delicious, makes one dozen cookies


10 dates, pitted and chopped
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/3 cup coconut oil
2 eggs
1 tablespoon molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2/3 cup dark chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with Silpat or parchment paper.

Add the dates to a small bowl with 1 tablespoon water and microwave on high for 30 seconds.  Mash dates with a fork until they form a thick paste. 

In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the date mixture, maple syrup, coconut oil, eggs, molasses and vanilla extract. Mix until combined. 

Add the almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon and cloves, mixing until combined, scraping the bowl as needed. Stir in the chocolate.

Spoon heaping tablespoons of dough onto the prepared cookie sheets, leaving at least an inch between cookies.  Bake 8 to 10 minutes.
