I can't take full credit for this recipe. It's the Nestle Toll House(R) chocolate chip cookie recipe turned grain-free and gluten-free. Why reinvent the wheel when an awesome recipe can easily be transformed into this paleo masterpiece?

2 cups chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cassava flour is a grain-free flour alternative to wheat flour. It's made from the cassava - or yuca - plant, a delicious root vegetable. It is a 1:1 flour when swapped for wheat flour by weight (not volume)
