Chocolate Chip Cookies

The chocolate chip cookie is one of the most requested recipes I get… So here it is… Enjoy!

What’s great about them

Almonds + macadamias are a fantastic source of heart healthy anti-inflammatory fats and antioxidants such as vitamin E. Cocoa is high in minerals and antioxidants. When using cocoa or chocolate the darker the better. I’ve used Green + Blacks organic 85 % dark chocolate in this recipe.
