Delicious, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s the holiday season! Happy December, y’all! My friend made delicious Nestle chocolate chip cookies yesterday, so I was determined to come up with a healthy alternative to the refined sugar-filled cookies. Though I believe in a balanced lifestyle (definitely ate her cookies), the holiday’s are filled with an excessive amout of refined sugar and gluten that can disrupt our bodies natural digestion. These cookied are a great alternative, they are gluten free, refined suagr free, AND though they contain pasture-raised butter, I made a dairy free version which you can find the recipe for RIGHT HERE. I prefer the butter ones, but the dairy free ones are still awesome! Are ya ready?

Enjoy!
