I don’t use “best” loosely! I have made hundreds of batches of gluten-free and paleo cookies. This is my perfected tried-and-true recipe.

The outside gets delicately crispy, the inside is soft and chewy, and the chocolate chips just take it over the top.

I’m confident you won’t know the difference between these and “normal cookies”. They satisfy my sweet tooth but don’t leave me craving the whole batch because of the healthy fat and protein in the almond butter and almond flour.

Enjoy fresh out of the oven, dunked in milk, and leave a review below to let me know how you like them!
