Cookies you and your man will devour without guilt!

Today’s Foodie Thursday (every week on MTM) has focused a lot on eating clean so I thought I would post a healthy and UNBELIEVABLY delicious treat!

My friend Jennifer makes these bad boys for her husband on demand constantly.  He loves them; the recipe uses 3 of the “Healthiest” foods; they are super simple to make.  No brainer, right?!

GLUTEN FREE ALMOND BUTTER CHOCOLATE CHUNK COOKIES

You’ll need:

  • 1 cup unsalted almond butter (chunky or creamy)
  • 3/4 sucanat or 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 3 oz dark chocolate (bar of 70% cocoa or greater)
  • Parchment paper (optional)

Simply:

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the first 5 ingredients.
  3. Chop up chocolate and stir it in.
  4. Make little dough balls and place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet (or coat the sheet heavily with spray).
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until browned.
  6. Cool on a wire rack.

According to Cooking Light magazine where she got the recipe, each cookie has 8 grams of fat, only 1.5 are saturated and 110 calories.  Not bad for a melt-in-your-mouth dollop of heaven.

  • Cely

    No gluten-free flour? I can’t believe these don’t need a
    binder of some kind, beyond the egg.

    • I thought the same thing. I seem to remember flour, but I’ll have to read the recipe again when I get home.

  • I went back to double check. NO FLOUR!

  • what temperature are these cookies supposed to be cooked at?!

  • Just made a nice tweak to this recipe.

    Added:
    1 tspn maple syrup

    1/2 over-ripe banana, mashed
    stir in until smooth
    they will spread so place only 6 on a sheet
    decrease baking time to 9-10 min.

    much lighter and very tasty!!!
