Guilt-Free Chocolate Chip Almond Cookies

As part of my continued commitment to find the perfect “clean” chocolate chip cookie recipe, I decided to experiment in my own kitchen yesterday.  Uh oh…

I took a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe and substituted some healthier ingredients.  For example, instead of using regular flour I used oat flour and quinoa flour.  Why?  Because for roughly the same calories you get a lot more protein and fiber using oat and quinoa flour.  Plus, it’s much fancier.

Instead of using normal sugar, I tried Splenda.  It tastes just as sweet minus the calories.  So, while eating a cookie is never as good as eating a salad (let’s be real here) at least this recipe is cleaner than a typical one.  Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  1. Heat over to 375 degrees F
  2. In a small bowl whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.

3.  In a large bowl beat almond butter, almond milk, Splenda, brown sugar and vanilla with a mixer.  Add eggs; beat well.

4.  Add flour mixture to the large bowl and beat until creamy.  Stir in chocolate chips with spoon.

5.  Drop by teaspoons onto cookie sheet.  Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet.

Enjoy!
