Gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, flour free. . . and yes, still taste amazing! Most gluten free cookies do not have a texture of a cookie, or taste good like a cookie for that matter. These babies however will take that cookie craving, and satisfy it.
Some days I even like these cookies more without the chocolate chips, but that is up to you. When I do use chocolate chips, I use the brand ‘Enjoy Life’ because they are dairy, soy, and gluten free. Or, I use raw cacao nibs, because that is true, healthy chocolate that is good for the soul.
Dr Jockers Comments:
Who doesn’t like chocolate and when you combine that with the creaminess of almond butter you have an incredible cookie. Organic dark chocolate that is minimally processed is loaded with anti-oxidants and compounds like theobromine and PEA’s that improve blood flow into the brain and boost dopamine levels and make you feel great.
These grain-free cookies are low carb, ketogenic and fat burning. We swapped out the maple syrup that Megan used in her original recipe for the keto maple syrup that is sugar-free. So these cookies will not increase your blood sugar and you can enjoy them as a regular treat. I know you and the family will really enjoy these!
