“Real Deal” Chocolate Chip Cookies—Grain Free, Refined Sugar Free

Real Deal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I recently made Danielle’s Real Deal Chocolate Chip Cookies.  She’s the author and brains behind the blog and cookbook, Against All Grain.  These ARE a great grain free, refined sugar free chocolate chip cookie. 

They are made with almond flour and a little coconut flour.  To sweeten them up, they have coconut palm sugar and a little honey.  I will definitely make these again and probably again…..

The only difference to her recipe, which called for either palm shortening or grassfed butter was that I didn’t use grassfed butter, but I did use butter and a good brand at that.  A little funny here, but I didn’t realize butter can be fed anything. Winking smile

If you’re like me and cutting out or back on grains and refined sugar, these are a great cookie to try, so go now to Danielle’s blog and make them ASAP.  I was lucky and blessed to buy her book, Against All Grain, with a wonderful gift card my parents sent for Christmas.  Thanks, Mom and Dad!

Why did I put “Real Deal” in quotes, you wonder?  Since I didn’t use grassfed butter, I don’t want you to think I copied her recipe completely, but that is the only change I made.
