Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was playing in the kitchen the other day and I came up with these tasty little Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies. Like all my recipes, they are so easy to make and are ready in less than 15 minutes. 

By using Almond Meal, these cookies are 100% gluten free. They are also free from dairy (depending on which chocolate you use) and any refined sugar. What’s not to love?

    I absolutely LOVE these cookies! Made them twice and probably going to make some more today! They’re that good! When I make mine I don’t use almond meal, I blend macadamias, almonds, and cashews to form small chunky pieces. Makes them super crispy in the oven!
