Double Chocolate Almond Butter Cookies

Print

So, this recipe was made out of an intense craving for chocolate and the hope of making something a little different than the standard chocolate chip cookie I usually make. My youngest was taking a nap, and I gathered my older two kiddos and we measured, poured and mixed (and of course tasted a little here and there), and this little gem was born!

Further Food Commentary:

A creative take on the classic, old fashioned Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies, this recipe is a healthy alternative that are easily customizable. The cookies incorporate almonds in two forms- as almond meal and almond butter, which means that you get a double dose of healthy fats and vitamin E. Not only that, but chocolate and almond butter is the next best duo after chocolate and peanut butter! With baking season in full swing, why not add this gluten-free cookie to your recipe collection and show others just
how delicious they can be?
