I THINK COOKIES ARE FOR ANY DAY…EVERYDAY, BUT ONLY IF THEY’RE NOT YOUR STANDARD JUNK FOOD VARIETY! SO, HERE’S A HEALTHY OPTION!
2 cups almond butter (1 16 ounce jar)
1/2 cup date puree or 1/3 cup honey
1 pasture raised egg (skip and sub with chia/flax egg if you want to go vegan!)
1 teaspoon each baking soda, Himalayan pink salt, and vanilla bean paste
1 cup chocolate chip cookies of your choice
WHAT TO DO
1-heat oven to 350 degrees
2-mix all ingredients together folding in chocolate chips last
3-use scoop to drop cookie dough balls on parchment or silicone liners
4-flatten with spatula if you want classic cookie shape or leave puffy and round if you like!
5-bake 10 minutes (longer for crispier)
6-let cool and devour… or put a scoop of coconut ice cream on it while hot! YUM!
Note: these end up being chewy and slightly crumbly in texture by the next day… they are not a very doughy-heavy textured cookie. Perfect for a snack!
Idea: skip the chocolate chips and substitute with dried fruit for a nut butter-fruit snack to take on the go! 😉
