Double Chocolate Brownie Cookies (GF, V)

Just because you decided to eat a gluten free or vegan diet does not mean you can’t enjoy delicious home made cookies!  Of course you can buy packaged ones, but home made are better, especially when they are still a tad warm from the oven.  The recipe I am sharing with you today is a chocolate lover’s dream!  It has a chocolate dough, with plenty of chocolate chips mixed in.  It also happens to be refined sugar free as an added bonus!  These come together in about 45 minutes and they are easy to make, so you can be enjoying them in no time at all!
