Yum. Everyone loves a good chocolate chip cookie (especially around the holidays!) and nothing beats a warm, delcious one straight from the oven! We decided to take this classic cookie and make it in a better-for-you version! Made with good fats, like coconut oil, and natural, alternative sweeteners like honey and coconut sugar. These grainless goodies are a healthier way to satisfy your sweet tooth, keeping your gut happy without throwing your internal microflora out of whack! ;)
