If you are looking for a flourless (and somewhat healthy) cookie recipe that satisfies your sweet tooth this is a great recipe. These are also quick and easy to make requiring just a few basic ingredients. They are soft and chewy when first out of the oven and later become more of a crunchy cookie. Either way they are delicious!
1 cup almond butter
1/2 cup light or dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup slivered almonds (optional)
Using a teaspoon, scoop out small amounts of dough and roll them to form a ball. Place on cookie sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool for 5 minutes.
(Makes 2 1/2 Dozen Cookies)
