Paleo Sunflower Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

To all lovers of old school chocolate chip and/or peanut butter cookies (or, for the truly daring,¬†lets take the two and combine ūüėČ because really, what’s better than chocolate and peanut butter fused?¬† Nothing, that’s what.¬†¬†Besides possibly¬†pumpkin pie or pumpkin bread, but that’s another¬†debate for a different day).

The coolest thing about these cookies though?  They deliver all the taste of a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie but are grain free, dairy free, Paleo and free of refined sugar.  The texture is cakey and moist.  They taste lightly sweet and peanut buttery, except these guys are made with sunflower butter.  The supposedly healthier cousin to PB, as its not a legume/nut.

Get excited for these guys.  Easy to make and totally delicious.
