About

These chocolate chip cookies are gluten, dairy, soy, and sugar free --- but they are oh so good! What surprised me most about these chocolate chip cookies were how soft, light, and tender they turned out. Not even to mention the taste. They tasted like they were packed with butter and sugar when in fact they were made with agave syrup, vegan butter, and the very nutritious almond flour.
**Note-Only very finely ground blanched almond flour will work, I used the Honeyville brand
