Chocolate Chip Cookies {grain-free, dairy-free}

Chocolate Chip Cookies—Souflul Skin | These paleo chocolate chip cookies can be made two ways. With coconut oil they are round, american-style cookies. Or made with butter they can be a smaller, firmer biscuit. You choose!

We spent a whole week testing out different versions of these cookies *sigh*, it was tough! This version is dairy-free and uses coconut oil, which results in a larger american style cookie. You can also use butter, which is delicious and makes a smaller, firmer biscuit.

I usually like to be economical with almond flour and don’t make a lot of recipes that call for 2 cups, but we made an exception for these cookies. :-)

Depending on the type of dark chocolate that you use, these can be free from refined sugar as well. We often use chocolate sweetened with erythritol and stevia.

Keep a close eye on the cookies when baking as they can burn easily. We wasted one batch by getting distracted watching videos of cute baby elephants on facebook . . .
