Primal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Primal Chocolate Chip Cookies are made with high protein almond flour and  naturally sweetened with honey. This incredible grain-free cookie is made with just 7 ingredients and will knock your socks off! No one will know this is a healthy cookie recipe!

There are so many forms of the grain-free diet. Primal. Paleo. Specific Carbohydrate Diet. GAPS. Call it what you want. I began the grain-free diet in 2001. I have adhered to it religiously ever since. When I began, I followed the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. And ever since then, I’ve been strictly grain-free. This is not a fad for me. It’s a way of life. When I started the grain-free diet, people thought the gluten-free diet was freakish.

Now there are so many of us on paleo diets. We’re gluten-free. We’re grain-free. We’re definitely not freaks. Now we’re merely a bit ahead of the curve. It wasn’t always like that.

The almond flour cookie recipe that I share with you today for a paleo chocolate chip cookie reminds me of the way I used to bake a decade ago. When I used honey quite often in my recipes. Call them what you want. Argue with what they’re called. It’s all semantics anyway. And I promise you. I won’t argue back. I just want you to enjoy the cookies.
