The Best Almond Meal Cookies!

I have to warn you that these cookies are addictive! My family and I can never have enough of them. There's always a new batch in the oven when our supply is running low. You can never just have one of these delicious, guilt-free cookies!

2 cups almond meal (I use the Trader Joe's brand)
1 TBs ground flaxseed (optional)
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. water
6 TBs melted organic butter
4 TBs honey
6 TBs semi-sweet chocolate chips

-Preheat oven to 350
-Mix dry ingredients together, then add cooled melted butter, vanilla, water and honey. Mix well then add chocolate chips. The batter should be able to hold its form once you roll it into balls (a heaping tablespoon for each ball). If it's too soft or sticky feel free to add a bit more almond meal, and if it's too dry you can add 1 tsp of water.
-Place rolled balls on parchment paper and bake in preheated oven for 10-13 minutes or until golden brown. Leave in pan for 10 minutes to cool before handling.

Just replace the butter with coconut oil and instead of chocolate chips you can use dried cranberries.

Tip: Best served fresh and warm!
