How To Have Your Chocolate Chip Cookies And Eat Them Too!

Leave a comment

Chocolate chip cookies have always been a comfort food for me, but just reading the ingredients on a package of President’s Choice decadent variety makes my stomach hurt. Lucky for me [and you] I have found an equally delicious recipe without the guilt!

Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies (dairy and gluten free)
Recipe from: Living Healthy With Chocolate 20130528-224022.jpg
Ingredients
1 cup almonds
1 cup pecans
1 large egg, room temperature
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons raw honey
¼ cup unsweetened carob chips (or chocolate chips)
pinch of salt

Instructions
Process the almonds and pecans in a food processor until creamy and smooth like peanut butter. Add the egg, vanilla, honey and salt to the almond/pecan mixture and process until well combined.
Transfer the batter into a mixing bowl and gently fold in the chocolate chips. The batter will be quite sticky. Using a spoon, place 12 balls of dough onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 350°F for about 15 minutes or until the edges start to turn brown [I probably left mine in a minute or two too long]. Allow about 19 minutes for the cookies to cool and enjoy!
