All Natural Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here is another cookie recipe to get you through the sugar assault that is Easter! This is a recipe from my ultra-healthy sister in law. Thanks Aubrey!

3/4 cup room temp. butter
3/4 cup sucanat or palm sugar
1/3 cup maple syrup, preferably grade B
2 T raw honey
1 T vanilla extract
1 egg
2 1/2 cups flour--I used ground soft white wheat
1/2 t salt
3/4 t baking soda
1- 1 1/2 cups grain sweetened chocolate chips or carob chips (there is a chocolate bar I found at Target that is sweetened with Raw Organic Sugar, that works in these chopped up. It gives these more of a "gourmet" look.)
Preheat oven to 350
Let all your cold ingredients come to room temp...they will cream much better that way.
Cream the butter, sugar, syrup and honey very well. Add the vanilla and egg. Cream very well. Add the dry and mix until combined, stir in chips.
Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 8-9 minutes.
Cool and enjoy!
