You need these…like….now.
Something I love even more then cookies are quick cookies. I mean I really hate faffing about in the kitchen. Quick and easy is what I strive for in the kitchen. Besides making the almond butter for these cookies as I ran out of. This recipe seriously took 5 mins to make and 7 mins baking time. 12 mins in total? YES PLEASE!!!
I was planning on adding an egg into these cookies but realised I didn’t have any. I was so sure I was making almond butter and chocolate chunk cookies so I wished for the best and I still made them without egg. What a result. They came out buttery with a mix between soft, chewy and crunchy. I was very pleased with the results needless to say.
It is Ramadan so I was fasting while making these, not a good idea. Especially when you give your kids a few and they gobble them up right infant of your face. Using every adjective they can to explain how ‘yummy’ these are. The temptation. Get away from me!
If like me you ran out of almond butter and are interested to know how to make some your self. Below is the simple steps of how I made the almond butter: *Roast for 10 mins in oven on 180*C, blend, scrap sides, blend again, turns into dough (last picture) then finally turns into smooth butter*
These cookies are perfect for when you have run out of snacks and are about to run to the shops. Let me stop you oil your tracks and demand you make these beauties. Almonds are amazing nuts not only are they delicious, almonds are also healthy fats and those healthy fats help fight heart diseases as well as lower your cholesterol. No to mention almonds are also packed with calcium, magnesium, vitamin e AND copper. Tasty and good for you? Yes please.
As well as easy these cookies are:
- Refined sugar free
- Butter free
- Oil free
- Egg free
- Chewy AND crunchy (Whaat?)
Hope you enjoy making these cookies as much as me and my family did.
