Basic almond meal cookies

I have ruined quite a few batches of cookies trying to get this right!  But I think I have finally come up with a "base" recipe for cookies that the kids will eat. 

I use Trader Joe's Stevia extract in the little bottle.
I use Trader Joe's vanilla - no alcohol

2 cups almond flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
8 TBSP melted butter (or 1/2 cup olive oil)
1 tsp Stevia
2 eggs
1 TBSP vanilla

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
2. Combine all ingredients and mix well
3.  Place spoonful of batter on greased cookie sheet
4.  Bake for 12-15 minutes until fork or tooth pick is clean

1.  Add 1 cup unsweetened chocolate chips (yummy!  Best one!)
2.  Add 1 TBSP cinnamon
3.  Add 1 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
4.  Any variation of the above!

I made a batch with some melted unsweetened cocoa (into brownies). The basic recipe is fine- just adds more flavor to put in some cinnamon or something like that.
