Oh! Chocolate chip cookies how we’ve missed you so! You would not believe that these cookies are gluten free, grain free, vegan and paleo! They are scrumptious, with their chewy, moist texture and keep you coming back for more. I have a hard time keeping these on the cookie platter for more than an hour or two before little fingers attack!

I am always putting out cucumber slices, carrot sticks, sliced apples, grapes and the such for everyday snack for my kids to munch on when they come home from school. This recipe offers us a special “friends are coming over…break out the yummy chocolate chip cookies” feel.  Yes, a great way to have nutritious treats for your kids, their friends, and don’t forget holiday parties! Enjoy!
