Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

Yeah, you read that right. Call the paleo popo, because I've been a bad boy messing around with chocolate and the ever forbidden peanut butter. Listen, the fact is peanuts don't tend to digest well for most people, and if eaten as a food staple they could definitely cause more harm then good. But guess what? Cookies as a food stable doesn't bode well for most people either! So every now and then when you're craving a well-deserved, grain-free, gluten-free, easy peasy, batch of peanut butter cookies, a little bit of chocolate and peanut butter isn't going to kill you. Unless you're allergic to peanuts or you're a dog, in which case it probably will.

So enjoy these cookies for yourself! Or don't. But I can tell you that I got to nom-nom my way through two batches of these bad boys to develop this recipe for you, and I have no regrets. My body devoured the deliciousness and converted it into raw, sexy, power. And yours will to, if you let it.
