Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a little secret. 

There is not one spot of flour or dairy in these cookies! I kid you not. Gluten free and only 6 ingredients, you would never be able to tell that they're gluten free either.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies could go up against any old chocolate chip cookie and win hands down. They are crispy yet tender-soft on the inside, and are to die for! I think I'm beginning to have an obsession with cookies...

@Ann - There is a link located just above the nutritional info that leads you to the recipe on Clean Eating Magazines website (it says "to get the recipe go to clean eating magazine". I cannot post their full recipe on my site due to their policy. You can also check out my recipe archive located at the top of the page for an adapted version that is vegan & gluten free. Happy Baking :)
