Its fun to try new recipes and see how I can make them GF and DF. The cookies below uses Agave Nectar which is a great substitute for sugar in baking, and still tastes great! Even hubby liked them!

  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder (Aluminum-free)
  • 1 pkg. Organic Chocolate Chips (Grain Sweetened is best)

Instructions

  • Eggs...only use 2!Preheat the oven to 375. In a large mixing bowl, combine butter with Agave and mix well with a hand mixer. When combined, add in the eggs, one at a time. Add in the vanilla and mix well.
