BakerGal Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie Balls

This delicious baked cookie ball is slightly crisp on the outside, and delectably soft on the inside. Best eaten warm! I discovered the "Cookie Ball" while devising a tasty paleo chocolate chip cookie recipe. As I tested each new recipe variant, I gauged the batter's spreadability with a "ball test": I'd leave one lump of cookie dough as a perfect ball and see how much it spread out in the oven on its own. The Cookie Ball was born!

5 oz (1 1/4 cups) very finely ground blanched almond flour (Bob's Red Mill brand can be bit too coarse)
1/4 teaspoon salt (I know you're supposed to avoid salt, but this is seriously important for flavor)
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup raw agave nectar
1/8 cup macademia nut oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
scant 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
