Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Protein Lean Chocolate Chip cookie

Vegan chewy chocolate chip cookies

This recipe will make old fashioned, chewy chocolate chip cookies that stay moist even after they have cooled. If you want a minimally sweet cookie, simply add less coconut sugar and fewer chocolate chips to the cookie recipe. For a less sweet cookie - use 1/2 bag of chips and reduce coconut sugar by 1/4 cup.  

This recipe makes about 2 dozen cookies.
