There was no option in the nutrition analysis for sugar free chocolate chips so the nutrition label for this recipe is assuming that you use regular mini dark chocolate chips.
If you are eating Paleo or wanting no refined sugar at all use the Know Better Foods chocolate chips, or Lily's Chocolate chips. Lily's are now available at Stop & Shop, Whole Foods and many other stores as well as on my Amazon Page.
