Found this recipe on Elana's Pantry.  I have been wanting to make them for a while.  The cookies are considered paleo as well as gluten free, egg free, dairy free (if you don't use a chocolate that contains dairy).  I decided to call them cookies instead of trying to put some kind of label on them. Elana's recipe is for chocolate chip, which these are not.  Also, I split the dough in half and made some with macadamia nuts and the other half with Sunspire Milk Chocolate Sun Drops, I made this half for my husband, I am allergic to chocolate :-(

The original recipe calls for almond flour, I substituted hazelnut flour in its place.

Cookies (Paleo, Gluten Free, Egg Free, Dairy Free)
2 cups hazelnut flour
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup vegan shortening (I use spectrum vegetable shortening)
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup chocolate drops or 1/8 cup macadamia nuts (only if splitting the recipe, otherwise use 1/2 cup of chocolate chips or drops)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Combine flour, salt and baking soda into a food processor.  Pulse in shortening, honey and vanilla until a dough forms.  Remove from food processor, add chocolate.  (split the dough in half and add what you would like).  Scoop dough about 1 tablespoon onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Press down balls of dough lightly.  Bake for 6-8 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool on a wire rack for at least 15 minutes.  Removing them sooner will make them fall apart.
