Almond Flour Gluten Free Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies are almost as American as apple pie but I wondered could I use the knowledge I’ve been gleaning about healthier ingredients and put something together that would meet the need for a treat.  Could I find something that would once again bring that homey smell into my house?  Was there a cookie that could be made without processed sugar so that even though a treat was being enjoyed, there was not a spike to blood sugar?  

Almond Flour Choc Chip Cookie

The answer to those questions is YES! YES! YES!

Fruit Sweet is made from 3 fruits – pineapple, peaches and pears.  It is cooked down until it is a honey type consistency.  I have used this product for close to 20 years and love it.   You can order at Wax Orchards
