Chocolate Overdose Hazelnut Cookies (Gluten Free/Clean Eating)

Ready for pure chocolate bliss? One bite and I was in heaven.  Pure chocolate hazelnut heaven!  My ridiculously awesome friend Erika (One cool cat, fitness fanatic and fellow foodie) created them and agreed to let me share them with the world (woohoo!).  I mean, there is no way to keep something this good a secret.  None.  Must be shared!  Best part? They are flour-less, gluten free, clean eating and Paleo lovers will be tempted!
