Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

We have a slight cookie fetish here. I find they are great snack, travel easily, and with just a couple cups of sucanat and palm sugar, they’re not overly sweet. I guess they’d more qualify for “energy bars” then a cookie treat. I ran out of blanched almonds for almond flour, so I thought I would try using almond butter instead. The end result is a nice, chewy cookie, that doesn’t fall apart much like other ones I have made (using g/f and sprouted flours can be so tricky!).

Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yields 2 big bagfuls of snacks that last about 3 days around here

Ingredients

1 cup butter, organic, pastured

1 cup almond butter, salted

2 cups sucanat

1 cup palm sugar

2 tsp baking soda, aluminum free

4 eggs, pastured

1/3 cup coconut flour

1 cup brown rice flour

2 – 3 cups sprouted flour

1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips

Method

Mix butters and sugars. While the mixer is running on low, add soda, eggs and flours – add enough flour to create a good cookie consistency in the batter. Spoon out onto a stainless steel cookie sheet, bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for about 10-12 minutes. Enjoy with a big glass of fresh milk or hot tea.
