These cookies are a little crispy on the edges, yet chewy in the middle! Gelatin is used to make the cookies really chewy, and to get the crispness on the edges, the cookies are baked a little longer than the average grain free cookie. The butter and Swerve brown sweetener add to the authentic cookie flavor.Also, use very dark chocolate chips to minimize the sugar content. The macros in this recipe are calculated using Pasha 85% cacao organic chips, but you can use what ever dark chocolate or sugar free chips you like. For paleo-friendly chips, try these

Using a cookie scoop, place batter in 1 tbsp. scoops onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake 15–17 minutes until edges are browned. Browned edges are key to getting a slightly crispy edge. The rest of the cookie will still be soft and chewy.
Remove from oven and allow to cool a couple of minutes before removing from baking sheet and placing onto paper towels. Let cookies cool for 10–15 minutes before devouring. When cookies are warm, they are very soft. Cool the cookies to room temperature before eating so that the edges to get a bit crispy! Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
* Use blanched almond flour, not almond meal. Almond meal will cause them to be a little grainy. I recommend any of these: Wellbees, Honeyville, or Kirkland Signature*If you don’t have Swerve Brown Sweetener, you can use Lakanto Golden Monk Fruit Sweetener or granulated sweetener. I think that the Brown Sweetener mimics real brown sugar the best, but the other monk fruit or erythritol sweeteners will work.*Use actual gelatin, not collagen peptides for this recipe. You want the gelatin to gel in this recipe to provide the chewy texture. I like Great Lakes or Vital Proteins* For chocolate chips, choose very dark chocolate to minimize the carbs or use a stevia sweetened chocolate like Lily’s. I prefer no soy in my chocolate, so I like these 85% cacao chocolate chips. Try Enjoy Life chips for paleo.
