Clean Eating Thursday on a Friday...Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Holy Moly!! Talk about miracle cookies! These cookies have no flour in them, yet set up just dandy...if that isn't a miracle I don't know what is!! If you like the flavor and texture of Almond Butter...these will wow the socks off of you! By the way...LOVE almond butter. Its ingredients are the following: almonds. You don't get more natural than that! Almond butter is a little expensive. By far, the most affordable (and delicious) I have found is at Costco. You get twice as much for the same price as Walmart. Made according to the recipe (with the sucanat) each cookie has only 110 calories, 1 gram of fiber, 2 grams of protein, 10 grams carbs, 8 grams fat...NOT TOO terrible. If I am gestational diabetic again...these bad boys are going to be just the thing the doc. ordered!
Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Put the following ingredients in your cart...
1 cup unsalted almond butter, well stirred
3/4 cup Sucanat (this is a natural sweetener...hard to find...and when you do...expensive...I use sugar...the white, refined stuff that is bad for us.)
1 large egg
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. sea salt (or reg. salt...but not as "clean")
3 oz. dark chocolate (70% cocoa or greater) broken into small bits
Put your apron on and get bakin'..
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together in mixer adding chocolate last. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets lined with silpat or parchment paper. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until lightly browned. Let cool on cookie sheets for 5 minutes before moving to wire rack. Cookies are VERY crumbly.
