Just the sort of cookie I hope my Poe and our little family grows up holding dear – that perfect balance of indulgence meets nourishment- say hello to these dark chocolate chip delights. A grain free, gluten free, and completely vegan almond flour cookie, these leave you missing nothing between each bite of sweet and saltiness, chewy and crunchiness, and altogether chocolate chippy-ness. Each is packed full of protein and fiber rich hemp and almond, belly filling coconut oil, and perfect little pops of naturally sweetening maple. Bet you can’t munch just one!
