Chocolate Drop Cookies

Chocolate Drop Cookies

Miss 14 has been cooking up a storm in preparation for my birthday. She created these cookies and they were perfect the very first time.

These delicious, soft, fluffy cookies are so moreish you won’t be able to have just one. Luckily they are not only gluten-free and dairy-free but also low FODMAP and refined sugar-free as well.

Even those members of the family who don’t have dietary restrictions love them.

Whip up a batch today. You won’t regret it.

  • 1 cup coconut sugar ((or stevia))
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • Pana Organic Chocolate & Hazelnut Spread ((or dairy-free chocolate chunks/block))
