Last night we went to a pool party with 4 other families. I spent the afternoon baking, as I love to bring grain and dairy-free treats to parties to show non-paleo friends how delicious they can be. Everyone enjoyed both the brownies and cookies, but I have to say the latter are becoming famous amongst my friends.
This makes a nice, large batch of cookies. They are a bit moist so if you're serving them up in warm weather I suggest keeping them in the fridge.

In a separate bowl, mix flour through salt. Add gradually to wet mixture, mixing until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips.
Scoop batter by tbs. onto a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 11 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool 5 minutes before removing from baking sheet.
