Double chocolate lower carb gluten free cookies

I found this recipe in the latest Clean Eating Mag and adapted to our needs. I love how dark chocolaty these are! Just one is enough to satisfy your chocolate cravings!!
I swapped out the flours and sugars and cut out the nuts and cherries. These were great and easy to make. Check out Clean eating Mag march 2012 for the original recipe, my recipe is below!

Enjoy!

Ingredients:
3/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp each of baking powder and baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of salt
4 oz very dark chocolate chopped & melted (80% cocoa or greater)
4 tbsp butter at room temp
1/3 cup stevia in the raw-I ended up only using a 1/4-1/2 cup and plenty sweet
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350
Cream together sugar and butter for 2-3 minutes. Mean while in another bowl mix flour thru salt. Set side. Once sugar and butter are light and fluffy, add in the egg and vanilla. Mix well. Add in melted chocolate. With mixer on low, slowly add flour mixture a bit at a time, scraping down sides as you mix.
Form 1-2 tbsp balls of dough and place in parchment lined cookie sheet. Press down slightly.
Bake 8-12 minutes or until cookies begin to crack. Remove from oven and cool on sheet 10 mins. Then remove and cool completely.

    Hey girly! I recommended your blog to a friend whose daughter was just recently diagnosed with juvenile diabetes and celiacs. I think your blog is right up her alley. Thanks for having so many great recipes.

    She brings me new gluten free cookies in class so I knew she would love this recipe!
