Gluten Free Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies

We are getting ready for Sunday Night Football here since our Packers play the Seahawks. The family wanted cookies so I made these Gluten Free Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies and they are pretty damn tasty!

We aren’t gluten free here but I was looking for something a little healthier than the usually butter and bleached flour variety.
