Gluten Free, Grain Free, Dairy Free, Sugar Free…. and they actually taste GREAT!!!!  Really, really great! Especially when they are hot and gooey right out of the oven!!! mmmmmmmm

We have kids with Celiacs and other kids with digestive issues that have trouble processing grains, so using Almond Flour is great for our family.  Then, we did Whole 30 as a family.  While the goal of Whole 30 is to NOT recreate sweet treats, sometimes you have company or a party so cookies are in order!!! Plus, if you love with allergies or digestive issues, or you are diabetic, this recipe is for you. They have a lower glycemic index than sugar and also provide nutrients and fiber!  Win!  The almond flour and eggs add great protein so this is a snack that will fill you up and fuel you for your day.

There are NO sugars, NO honey, NO sweeter substitutes like Stevia-  just dates.  The key is to blend the dates into a date paste.  We have an individual smoothie blender that works great for this!  A stick (immersion blender) would be great too.

Enjoy!  Hot- gooey cookies!!!!!!
