Be still my heart!! I'm so glad to finally see some better, more with current research recipes here. This should also be labeled wheat and grain-free and not just gluten-free because it is MORE than gluten-free by a long shot. I wouldn't even feel the need for the chocolate chips myself. But that's just me. Keep up the good work!!
