GF Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

These grain free gems can also be made with Peanut Butter. I use a fresh almond butter that I get from a natural food store.  It gives it a hearty texture. You could make your own with a vitamix or sub in any other almond butter.

Recipe Notes

Hint: I freeze bananas in their peel when they get too ripe. Thaw and slide from peel when ready to use for breads or muffins. They mash very easily and add extra moisture to you baked goods.
