Chocolate_Chunk_Cookies_lizschauThese chocolate chunk cookies are so simple to make and decidedly less involved than many gluten-free baking recipes. They bake up thin, crispy, and perfectly chewy. These cookies contain no flour or starches, which means they are lower in carbohydrates and, since they are made with cashew butter, are loaded with protein. And, should you choose to use dark chocolate, they're also dairy-free. As always, be vigilant and check labels -- especially when purchasing chocolate, as some contain wheat and gluten.
