Please excuse my mini absence from blogging! I have definitely preferred to convey you a recipe, but I have been really occupied demolishing chickpea blondies, doing work, and hitting the yoga studio. Every single working day I search at the clock and it would seem to usually be 11PM… I have totally no plan the place the time goes. I do know that the temperature in Minnesota has been Remarkable these days, so as an alternative of editing photographs and cooking all the time I have been hoping enjoying the sunshine (we only get 5 months of it).

And these cookies? Very well I have been having fun with them, far too.

Owing to my recent yoga problem, I have been seeking to consume far better but clearly my sweet tooth is absurd. I will acknowledge that I have long gone by way of a pair of batches of my black bean brownies, but I variety of desired some thing a minor distinctive.

Cookies are often a excellent solution.

I made the decision to start out experimenting with recipe testing based on my flourless peanut butter oatmeal cookies.

I began by replacing the peanut butter with almond butter and sugar with honey. I also reduced the amount of money of sweetener because honey is the natural way sweeter than sugar, for that reason I didn’t need to have as considerably. The outcome? Properly gentle and chewy cookies. No guilt connected.

These cookies have it all: A tiny sweetness from the honey (or maple syrup) together with melty, warm dark chocolate chunks as well as a little salt for that great distinction. It was like at first bite.

Another terrific perk of this sweet is they are gluten no cost and paleo (I feel). I’m not on the paleo train but I started discovering that several of my recipes could most likely slide underneath that diet plan class.

Oh, and I just cannot neglect to point out that you can tailor the cookies to your liking! If you desire a crispier cookie, use brown sugar as an alternative of honey. Alternatively of almond butter, you can use your favored nut butter (like peanut butter or chocolate peanut butter). Come to feel free of charge to fold in coconut, dried fruit, oats, or your favored chocolate bar chopped up the choices are infinite!

If you bake these, be absolutely sure to article a image to my Facebook website page, or tag me on Instagram. Enjoy!
