Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Since going gluten free, we have been on a quest to find new things that we love and taste great. We had our first attempt at chocolate chip cookies recently and LOVED THEM! The almond flour gives it a delicious buttery taste unlike regular chocolate chip cookies. I actually got this recipe from the fixate cookbook and wanted to share it with all of you. The fixate cookbook has been my saving grace while I transitioned to gluten free because many of the recipes are already adapted to be gluten free. You can click here to check it out on my website.

1 tsp. baking soda, gluten free
1/4 tsp. sea salt or Himalayan Salt
