Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have been wanting cookies for the longest time now. But of course, a typical cookie contains white and brown sugar. And slowing cutting out sugar, I didn't want to give in and just make a batch of my normal homemade chocolate chip cookies. I figured my craving for that cookie would go away. But no, it didn't. All I could think about was a warm big cookie...
Who doesn't love chocolate chip cookies anyways?! 


How yummy do they look?! I watched these little (big) gems so closely while they were cooking. Just to see the magic happen. Oh! Would you ever guess they are flour-less?! 


Say what?! Does flour-less cookies make you kind of go, huh? How is it possible to have a chocolate chip cookie without flour?? Well my friend, I thought the exact same thing. I was a little nervous when I whipped these up. I have never made a flour-less cookie. Ever. I thought to myself, they would be huge disaster, or they were going to turn out okay. Well, they turned out MUCH better than I ever expected. 



Hands down, This is my new favorite cookie recipe.  They have the crispy crust, and soft and chewy center. They puffed up like a "normal" cookie. 
 Cookie Perfection 


I feel like I should keep the recipe a secret...
But I also want to share it because this is actually a healthy cookie, because it contains NO refined sugar! How awesome is that?! 


This recipe is so simple, and doesn't require a lot of ingredients!
So I present to you, the recipe: 


Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

1 Cup Almond Butter (or sun-butter, peanut-butter)
1/3 Cup Honey
1 Egg
2 Tbsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
Dash of salt
1/2 Cup Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips 

Preperation:

Preheat oven to 350° F 

  1. Whisk egg with a mixer. 
  2. After the egg is whisked. Combine all ingredients in the same bowl as the egg, except for the mini chips, and mix well. Once all mixed, add in mini chips and mix just until they are throughout the batter.
  3. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Drop cookies onto baking sheet. (You can make your cookies any size you want) Be sure to leave room because these spread out. 
  5. Bake for 13-18 min. Keep a close eye, don't want to over bake. 
  6. Let cool for a few minutes, then transfer to a plate. 


If you make bigger cookies, you'll get about 8 or 9 cookies. 



Enjoy!
