Chocolate Chip Cookies have been my favorite thing to eat for the longest time. Growing up in Brazil I never tasted a chocolate chip cookie so good until I moved to the US. I just love a soft, chewy and chocolaty cookie and I will not lie that I crave this more than anything. Every time I walk past a bakery I have to hold myself from going in there and buying a cookie. That smell of fresh cookies being baked is just so irresistible and tempting….
I think you will agree with me and think this recipe will more than satisfy that craving and your kids will love them too. These cookies are grain free and Paleo, so enjoy them with your family as a treat when you get those cravings for a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie.

- combine wet and dry ingredients and mix gently with rubber spatula until combined, then stir in the chocolate chips
- refrigerate the dough for about 15 minutes
- scoop out tablespoon-size balls of dough about 2 inches apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and flatten each cookie with the palm of your hand
