Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies (thick!)

by hungryelephant

These delicious cookies are a work in progress. I still need to work on it so that they flatten out a bit – once I do, that recipe will be in my new upcoming book. However, these were too delicious NOT to share with you, despite the lack of spreading out.
