Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies

As always my sweet tooth rears its ugly head around the first of the month!

So to satisfy my cravings and not totally sabotage my diet, I found a recipe for oatmeal cookies and turned them into a healthier version.

Ingredients

1/2 cup unsalted softened butter

1 cup almond butter

3/4 cup coconut sugar

1/3 cup maple syrup

2 large organic eggs

1 tsp pure vanilla

3 cups gluten free oats

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1 cup dark chocolate baking chips ( I use Lily’s dark chocolate)

1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

1/2 cup dried cranberries (optional)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 F

In a bowl, beat butter, almond butter, coconut sugar, and maple syrup until smooth. Add vanilla and eggs and beat . Add oats and baking soda use low speed until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and any other optional ingredients you want to add.

Drop 2 Tbsp size portions of cookie dough onto lightly greased baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Take a spoon and slightly flatten each drop of dough

Bake for 10-12 minutes, they will be a golden brown when done.

Let cool for 8 minutes and enjoy!
