ticked off #paleo

my Paleo grocery store haul. so much good stuff. I can't wait to get cooking!

when I first started this post I had absolutely nothing to be ticked off about.
however, after making my very first Paleo recipe, I am now thoroughly pissed.

this IS my real hair

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

what you need:

   1 cup almond flour

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

   3 tablespoons melted coconut oil

   2 tablespoons honey

   1 teaspoon vanilla extract

   1 tablespoon almond milk


how you make it:

1.  preheat oven to 350 degrees
     line your baking sheet with parchment paper [I didn't.. I should have]

2.  combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl

3.  whisk wet ingredients until blended in a small bowl

4.  combine wet and dry ingredients
     mix until completely blended

5.  tap batter out onto your baking sheet in 8-10 small portions
     press batter down in the center of each "cookie"

6.  bake for 11-12 minutes, or until the bottoms just begin to brown

7.  remove from oven and let cool 2-3 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack

**the cookies will be soft when removed from the oven
   they will firm up while cooling [unless you are me and they never do because you added too much honey]

yeah so.. my cookies look like shit. 
but they don't taste too bad so I guess overall it could be worse.
I am truly a horrible baker, which I find strange because I cook so well.
although, I really am terrible at following directions
so it all really does make sense, doesn't it.

make some cookies and let me know how it goes!
