Almond-Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies {Grain-Free}

Is a grain-free diet healthier than grain-full(?) diet? No clue.  But it sure can be tasty! I used this recipe as a guideline.  Really, ingredient-wise I made minimal changes (I decreased the brown sugar and coconut oil, but barely), but I made HUGE changes to the methods.  Honestly, I did so because I did not… Continue reading Almond-Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies {Grain-Free}
