Dairy-Free Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies

Dairy-Free Paleo Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies? Yes, please! A couple of weeks ago I tested my recipe for Almond Butter Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins. These were a pretty big hit for my site and among friends as well. I am still determined not to waste leftover food from recipes. The dark chocolate chips from that recipe came in handy while brainstorming ideas for these cookies. I also used coconut sugar for this recipe. I have not used this sugar since I made my Strawberry Greek Yogurt Bites. EEEK! I do not want to admit how long ago I made those. Hint, I made the bites, and celebrated the Chiefs first season home-game win last fall, immediately after.

It is very important to use NATURAL peanut butter if you would like the recipe to remain healthy. Regular peanut butter typically has added sugar and salt. I look for peanut butter that has one ingredient, PEANUTS. 

I opted for coconut sugar vs regular sugar because organic palm coconut sugar is 3-5% fructose. Regular table sugar is 70-70% fructose. We see reports all of the time on how unhealthy fructose can be. I always opt to lower my intake, when possible.
