Wow! Just Delicious! The Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Cookies is another recipe I made for Jim's birthday celebration and boy where they a big hit! (Even approved by the Southern Mother-in-Law and Father-in-Law!)
Remember, just because it's clean and isn't full of processed junk, you still need to be conscious of the total amount of calories you are consuming. Each of these bad boys have about 110 calories. Not bad for a snack once in a while, but pop 4 or 5 of them and you have wasted a good bit of your daily caloric intake. You will get nowhere with your health and fitness goals if you are indulging in too many of our Clean Eat Treats!
1 cup Almond Butter, stirred well
3/4 cup Sucanat
1 large egg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
3 oz dark chocolate (try Lindt Extra Dark Chocolate 85% Cocoa), broken into small pieces
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine the first five ingredients until blended. Stir in Chocolate.
2. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls on to partchment-lined baking sheets (non-stick pans work incredibly well also!). Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool on baking sheets for five minutes. Remove to a wire rack and let cool for 15 more minutes.
Yields approximately 24 cookies.
He and She Tip: Freeze your left over cookies by wrapping each one individually. When you are looking for a special treat, unwrap one and eat it before it thaws. A little piece of Heaven on Earth!
