Taylor's Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today's cookie comes from one of my favorite fashion bloggers Taylor of Sterling Style! Taylor recently tried to cut out grains or gluten from her diet to help with her allergies. She was following the Paleo Diet, which you can read more about here.  Her chocolate chip cookies are grain free and apparently delicious! I'm dying to try them! Here's what she says about them, "These cookies are made with mostly healthy nuts, dates, and coconut and taste so similar to a regular chocolate chip!! My boyfriend and I have been fighting over them."
Taylor's Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe from here
(Makes 12)

    •    4 dates, pits removed
    •    1 1/2 cup walnuts
    •    1/2 cup pecans
    •    1 tsp baking soda
    •    1/8 teaspoon salt
    •    2 tablespoons coconut oil
    •    1 egg
    •    1 teaspoon vanilla
    •    1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
    •    1/4 – 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grind dates in the food processor until a paste forms, about 40 seconds. Add walnuts and pecans and blend until very finely chopped, about 35 seconds. Add baking soda and salt and pulse a few more times.
Warm the coconut oil so it is in liquid form. With the food processor running, drizzle it into the batter with the egg and vanilla. Stop mixing as soon as the egg and oil are blended in.
Scrape the batter into a bowl and stir in coconut and chocolate chips by hand. The dough will be sticky and wet. Drop 12 portions of the dough onto a cookie sheet, then flatten slightly with your fingers.
Bake 15 minutes, or until nicely browned.

I love that this recipe doesn't call of any weird/hard to find items. And the fact that it's healthy and delicious is all the more appealing!
