Salted Almond Meal Chocolate Chip Cookies

In case you didn’t know, almond flour is highly nutritious. Unlike traditional grain-based flours, almond meal is high in protein and low in carbohydrates and sugars. Healthy, organic, and gluten-free, you’d expect these cookies to taste like dirt but they’re actually to die for. Soft yet crunchy, this GF treat from the Sprouted Kitchen Cookbook contains three gloriously delicious flavors: chocolate, almond, and coconut. Uh, YUM!
