Peanut Butter is my favorite food (natural peanut butter of course!). Only recently have I discovered Almond Butter, and I just can’t get enough of it! So when I saw this recipe in the Best of Clean Eating book, I said “Ummmm, yes please”! They were delicious!!
While they are a clean alternative to regular cookies, remember that they are a treat. Treats are to be consumed in extreme moderation! A good way to ensure that you don’t over-indulge is to pull a couple out for yourself, and take the rest to work or to share with family or friends. They are just too tempting to keep around the house that’s for sure! 🙂
1 cup unsalted almond butter, stirred well
3/4 cup Sucanat
1 Large egg
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
3 oz dark chocolate (70% cocoa or greater), broken into small pieces
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, stir together first five ingredients until blended. Stir in chocolate.
2. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned. Let cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes. Remove to a wire rack and let cool for 15 more minutes.
