These Chocolate Chip Cookies are not only grain-free and gluten-free, they are also refined sugar-free, vegan, and nut-free! They are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Even though they are ‘free’ of so many things, they are not flavor free. I bet you can’t eat just one…

My mom made the best chocolate chip cookies when Iw as growing up. I am sure everyone has a chocolate chip cookie memory and vows that their grandma or mom made the best. My moms were small and had a lot of chips in them. That’s what I loved about them. The dough to chocolate ratio was perfect. Those cookies probably contributed to why I love chocolate so much today.

This recipe has you use sunflower butter. Sunflower butter or also known as sun butter can be one of those pantry items that you buy for one recipe but never use it again. I know I am guilty of that. If you have almond butter, or cashew butter in the pantry already, those are fine replacements. But if you are nut-free, stick with sun butter, tahini or pepita butter.
