Chocolate Chip Cookies

You can never have too many cookies, right? We might like to think this but there is such a thing as “big butt syndrome” induced by overindulgence in cookies 😉 Don’t worry, this recipe has protein along with B vitamins and is of course gluten-free! I would never give a recipe that was full of bad fat and refined sugar so you had to limit yourself to just 1 cookie, that would just be mean!

Hope you enjoy!

…Oh, for everyone who watches The Global Morning Show and follows the amazing Joy McCarthy of Joyous Health these are the cookies you are looking for. She showed them as part of her great gift ideas for the holidays.

Sorry I could not find a picture 😦 but I have linked you to Joy’s instagram photo of them.
