Almond-butter Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies
These are ridiculously easy to make, and are tastier and healthier than regular peanut butter cookies! I have been dying to try this since my neighbor told me about this recipe. My cookies are a little crumbly, so I'm wondering if it had to do with the consistency of my almond butter. Maybe I didn't stir it completely enough - I will try a different brand next time.
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% or greater) chopped (I used "Theo" organic chocolate. Try to find one without soy that is just pure chocolate)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl, stir together first 5 ingredients until blended.
Stir in chocolate.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto parchment-lined baking sheets. leave 2 inches between as these spread a bit.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned
