FLOUR-LESS Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies [no flour; dairy-free, low-sugar]
Adapted from a Clean Eatingmagazine recipe [Makes 24 cookies]
**Their readers REALLY wrote in about THIS one, saying these were incredible. We agree totally!
*Note: Underlined items available at The Well
1 cup almond butter, stirred well
¾ cup organic Sucanat
1 large pastured poultry egg [LOCAL!]
½ tsp. baking soda
dash sea salt
3 oz. dark chocolate chips or pieces– try one of The Well's dark chocolate bars, cut in small pieces
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, stir together first 5 ingredients until blended. Stir in chocolate.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonsfuls onto parchment-lined baking sheets. [I lightly sprayed a baking sheet; it did fine.]
Bake for 8 - 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes. Remove to a wire rack and let cool for 15 more minutes. [Linda: It was almost unbearable to wait, they smelled SO good. And, they WERE that good!]
