Grain-free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten-free chocolate chip cookies...there is a God!
By now, you pretty much know how I feel about chocolate. Then again, is there a person alive who doesn’t love it?  I suppose there is but seriously, what’s wrong with them?
You can also add homemade chocolate chip cookies to my list of obsessions-and probably yours too. But, they have to be homemade or I wouldn’t waste the calories/sugar poisoning/carb overload-it just wouldn’t be worth it.  So imagine my happiness when I came across this recipe for Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies-even the chocolate chips are gluten free!  Now, I know that doesn’t address the calories/sugar poisoning/carb overload issue but it does address the gluten-free issue.  So, if you’re adhering to a gluten-free diet (and it really would behoove you to do so), here is a little slice of heaven.  Stick with the 3 polite bite rule and your indulgence will result in little damage.  Thank you Paleo Plan for creating this awesome cookie makeover.
