You know, everyone has a chocolate chip cookie recipe.  If you search for ‘chocolate chip cookie’ recipes on Google, you can be inundated by all the choices.  And I’m also guilty of having more than one chocolate chip cookie recipe on this website (see here, here and here).  But, when you feel like a chocolate chip cookie but you don’t have gluten free flour to make any of these other awesome choc chip cookie recipes.  Using almond flour, the texture is a little bit different but unless you are a choc chip cookie connoisseur, I don’t think you’ll notice the difference!

Easily made dairy-free with dairy-free chocolate chips, or you can even mix it up by using raisins, or cranberries … if you don’t have someone in your family who is fundamentally against dried fruit in any form (thanks Abby!).  Simple to make, yummy to eat!
