Palm Sugar Sweetened Chocolate Chip Cookies


***While these are still very yummy, I have a new favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, click HERE to see it***

I have to say that these are my favorite cookies so far! They are soft, chewy, chocolaty, and so delicious! They kind of remind me of a chewy Nabisco cookie, but softer and with more flavor.They are also way more nutritious! Made with heart-healthy almond flour and sweetened with palm sugar, this is a treat you don’t have to feel guilty about 🙂

These would be great as cookie sandwiches, just let cool and slather marshmallow fluff frosting between 2 cookies. Voila!

***Update– To make these cookies vegan, replace the egg with 1/4 C unsweetened applesauce and 1 Tbsp. ground chia seeds. Increase the baking soda to 1 tsp. and add 1 tsp. grain free baking powder ( has a good recipe for this).
