Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies That Are Healthy And Good For You

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies

These chocolate chip cookies are gluten-free, dairy-free, and paleo. They go really fast in our house.  We have had friends sneak a few of these when they’ve been over and they’ve all agreed that these don’t taste like typical “healthy” cookies.
If your are looking for a healthy dessert then these  cookies will add a pleasant surprise to that sweet tooth.
They are chewy, moist, and satisfying – perfect for post-workout or grab a few for breakfast if you’re on the go. These Paleo chocolate chip cookies have healthy fats and a bit of protein, so in a pinch, they will keep your stomach from growling till you can have a real breakfast.
If you eat these, they are much better than going without breakfast or chowing down on a sugar-loaded coffee shop muffin. (Still stop to get a coffee in the morning though – these taste great with a cup!) When you enjoy this recipe go to the home page of Healthy Dessert Recipes and enjoy more.
