Rosemary Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Rosemary Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies… who doesn’t love them!? I, personally, love all cookies and definitely do NOT discriminate! Whether you like them soft & chewy, crisp & crunchy, or crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside, these babies can satisfy any cookie lover’s tastebuds.

As usual, these cookies are grain & refined sugar free and to top it all off, they may be the easiest cookies I’ve ever made. A few shakes of a whisk and they’re ready for the oven. Unlike most cookie recipes where you need to beat the butter & sugar together, that’s all thrown out the window here. That’s another plus of baking with almond flour… no need to worry about over-mixing when there’s no gluten! This easy recipe is also the base for my equally delicious maple-bacon chocolate chip cookies. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do! Be on the lookout for my Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe… it’s in recipe development as we speak!

**For regular chocolate chip cookies, simply omit the rosemary & pecans.
