Almond Butter Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

No flour, no butter, and no white sugar. WHAT?? That’s right – these almond butter dark chocolate chip cookies do the trick.

We’re doing these really awesome fundraisers at work, and a co-worker of mine made this AH-MAH-ZING cookie – an Almond Butter Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie. Like, so good that I had to text her for the recipe. When she told me that it was flour-less, butter-less and void of white sugar (without the weird taste that fake sugar often has), I was like “stop the presses, gotta make this now.” I couldn’t believe it.

I experimented with her recipe just a little bit. I loved how her recipe was chewy and I wanted a little bit more texture. Bryan LOVED it – peep the recipe below.

Almond Butter Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe uses coconut sugar instead of white sugar. While coconut sugar has just slightly fewer calories than white sugar, you should still treat it like white sugar when you’re diabetic. It is lower glycemic index than white sugar, and your body may absorb it slowly, but it could still cause a spike for you, especially when you’re insulin resistant. These are still best in moderation.
