Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies!Friday, July 17, 2015
Oh you guys! I have been meaning to share this recipe with you all for weeks now, and I am finally getting around to it! I would have to say that chocolate chip cookies are my favorite, and these are a good spin on a classic.
I found the original recipe over on A Beautiful Mess (those girls are just amazing, but you probably already knew that, because we all read their blog right? Right??), and with my dietary restrictions, I knew these were just up my alley.
I did, however, make a few adjustments to make them more to my taste, and to cut back on the sugar, and they turned out so good! The batter almost tastes like nutella, and everybody knows that it doesn't get much better than that.
FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES: makes 20-22
1/2 c. almond butter
1/2 c. hazelnut butter
1/4 c. Splenda brown sugar blend (or your own blend/mix)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. sugar free chocolate chips
Sea salt to sprinkle on top (optional)
Mix all together in a medium bowl, and drop spoonfuls onto your baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, and voila! You will have a delicious, gooey treat that goes perfectly with a glass of milk.
You just may want to wait a few minutes to let them cool though, you know, so you don't scorch all of your taste buds off ;) you will definitely want your tongue to be at full tasting capacity!
I like to buy my almond butter in bulk at Winco, so it saves me some money, and I also make my own hazelnut butter using a food processor. It's so simple, you just throw them in and grind until it's a nut butter consistency! The hazelnut butter mixed with the chocolate chips is what gives it that really good nutella-like flavor.
If you don't want to go the sugar substitute route, or you want to try different nut butters, check out the original recipe here. Trust me, even if you are an avid, bread-loving, carb-eater, you will not miss the flour in these cookies!
I hope you'll try these out, and that you enjoy them as much as I do (seriously, I can't stop making them!). Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!
