Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (Vegan, Gluten Free, Grain-Free and Mostly Sugar Free)

So this is one of my go-to desserts when I need some comforting me time or just a quick sweet fix.  It's one bowl magic and happiness.  If you're cutting out all sugar I've even made this with baking chocolate chopped into pieces (which is super dark and has no sugar added) and I've considered adding a swirl of peanut butter...somebody please do this and let me know how it tastes!  There's just something about gooey dough and bits of chocolate that takes 5 minutes to make and is available to eat immediately that can't be beat.

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (Vegan, Gluten Free, Grain-Free and Mostly Sugar Free)
2 C blanched almond flour
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 C coconut oil/grapeseed oil or melted butter (not vegan or dairy free though)
1/4 C honey or agave
1/3 C chocolate chips

Using a small mixing bowl, mix the melted coconut oil, honey, vanilla, salt and blanched almond flour.
Gently mix in the chocolate chips- be careful here as they may melt a tad if the coconut oil is still warm. But is that really a bad thing?
Then grab your self some red wine and a spoon and dig in and try not to eat it all in one sitting.
