Let's get real- it's the holidays, which means there are sugar-filled temptations everywhere you look!  I don't believe in completely restricting and cutting out foods unless they are purely foods that make me sick.  While I don't eat gluten, and keep dairy to a minimum, I still love to bake and if I TRULY want something to satisfy my sweet tooth, I find a way to make it happen, which is how I discovered Chocolate Chip Cookies that are soft and decadent, PLUS are dairy-free, gluten-free, AND soy-free.  And you get the added benefit of collagen to help with glowing skin, aiding in digestion, and luscious hair!

Also, these sweet little guys are super easy to make.  Let me know if you try the recipe below.
