Chocolate chip cookies with a unique flavor from ghee – so very tasty!

There were a number of awesome discoveries I made about food during my Whole30 months … one of them was ghee.  You see, many oils are classified as ‘less healthy’ for you, and some oils are classified as ‘more healthy’ for you.  Ghee is clarified butter, and being lactose free means that I can have this and not worry about having issues with my stomach.  And I managed to win some ghee from Tin Star Foods through an Instagram competition so I started using it for all my cooking.  Did you know just how crispy a fried egg can be when you cook it in ghee?  It is absolutely awesome!

But then I thought to myself, how else can I use ghee?  I wonder if I can use it in cookies?  And me, being me, just had to try it.  So I did, and loved the totally unique taste the ghee gave what would have been relatively standard chocolate chip cookies.  Our whole family loved them, and that’s saying something.

You’ll love them too – try them and let me know what you think!
