7 Delightful Grain-Free Cookies So You Can Spring Clean & Eat Clean

Everyone takes the time to declutter when spring is around the corner, thus there is no better time to rid your pantry of the unnecessary, too. We're not saying to fully remove any and everything "bad" for you, but simply health-ify what you already have. For some, that means getting rid of sugar in their morning coffee, but for you, that might mean experimenting with the removal of grains from your diet. Maybe not from your entire diet, but at least for the sweet stuff like, oh, I don't know—cookies.

You may be wondering what a grain-free cookie tastes or looks like, and that's a great question. You know what's even better? Cooking them and finding out for your own, rather than being told how deliciously delectable they truly are. Really, you'll hardly even notice that there aren't your typical grains in these bad boys, which makes them all the better.
