My Daughter and I Flourless Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies 1

Jordan made these cookies the other day and we both thought they were great. They aren’t the prettiest cookies ever, but they were tasty and super simple to make. No butter, no flour, whipped up in one bowl in about five minutes! Why wouldn’t you give them a try?

My Daughter and I Flourless Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Flourless Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies {gluten free!}

Ingredients:
1 large egg

1 cup almond butter, we used crunchy, unsalted from Trader Joe’s

1/2 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp. vanilla

3/4 cup dark chocolate chips or mini semisweet chips

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350F
Crack the egg into a medium bowl and beat it lightly. Add in the almond butter, vanilla, baking soda, and sugar and mix everything together well. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Scoop the dough onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. I use a (1 3/4 inch) scoop, but you can use a tablespoon. Space the cookies well apart, and flatten them slightly with the back of a spoon.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Don’t overbake these, the cookies will look underdone, but they will firm up as they cool.

Let them cool for a couple of minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer them carefully to a cooling rack.

Because we used a crunchy almond butter the cookies had a definite “healthy” look to them. I loved the extra texture, but if you’d prefer a little less texture, I would recommend using a smooth almond butter.
