In my opinion, you can never have too much chocolate. These cookies live up to that statement. They are full of chocolate, chewy delight! I recently baked them for a football party and failed to mention that they were Paleo and didn't contain any sugar, butter or flour. I waited until everyone had tried one. After compliments from multiple people about how delicious they were and how they wanted to eat the whole plate, I informed everyone of what they consisted of. Needless to say, I got multiple responses that they wish they knew because they would have gone for seconds! These are sure to be a crowd pleaser and a healthier option to traditional chocolate cookies.
