    My husband is highly allergic to chocolate. Sad, but true. Finding recipes without chocolate is tuff. But keto AND no chocolate is very frustrating. I accidentally ran across some Lily’s Butterscotch Chips in Walmart & my recipe search began. These cookies were quick & easy to make & he loves them! GLORY!! Thanks for such a wonderful recipe!
