Chocolate Chip Paleo Cookies

Posted by in Recipes

Every once in a while, I like to treat myself to some baked paleo goods.  Let’s be real, what paleo gal doesn’t crave chocolate chip cookies once in a while?!  I’ve experimented a lot in the kitchen with almond flour lately and I have to say, these chocolate chip cookies are phenomenal. You almost forget they’re paleo because they taste THAT delicious.

Now what are you waiting for?  Go make these cookies immediately! Image

– 1 tsp vanilla extract
